Nothing beats zooming down an icy, snow covered landscape on a small piece of plastic with nothing but your feet between you and certain death.
If you are heading out to enjoy a day of sliding and want to take some great photos, here are some tips! (Feel free to share with your friends via the Twitter/Facebook links at the end!)
ISOThe ISO you choose really all depends on the light. If you've got a bright sunny day, ISO 400. If it's overcast, ISO 800. If it's overcast and really dark, you may have to go to 1250-1600 .
AUTOFOCUS MODESince you are photographing a fast moving subject, you should be using continuous autofocus The setting is AF-C for Nikon, Sony, Pentax or AI SERVO on Canon. I would also suggest you set the focus point to the middle.
To see why, here's a comparison of two sets of images, one taken with SINGLE SHOT(ONE SHOT or AF-S):
Only the first image is sharp, and the rest become more and more out of focus because the focus point is locked at the start.
Now lets take look at one taken with CONTINUOUS(AF-C or AI SERVO)
All nice and in focus as it constantly tracks the moving subject and refocuses each time!
