took these photos tonight with my new canon T2i. IMO, they're TERRIBLE. i didn't get a single, decent shot of DD15 on the field.

i WAS using full auto mode, as 2 days just wasn't enough time for me to learn how to set everything myself.

Your basic zoom lens isn't going to be great in low light. You can still improve these pictures in Lightroom. If you shoot in RAW, then Lightroom can work wonders.

i did notice the pics were dark. i'm not too upset about that, i kind of expected that, but they're so blurry. i guess because i was using the kit lens at first, and most of the pics i took of DD were with the kit lens. i used it for the first few pictures, then switched to the zoom. i wish i'd been using the zoom the entire time.
unfortunately, this was my last chance to get a good shot of her this season. our next (and last) game is a home game, and i'll be working the main concession stand the entire game. it's senior night, and the senior band parents won't be working, so the rest of us have to pick up the slack.

The zoom lens looks a bit more blurry. It all goes hand in hand. I checked 1 of your pics; the shutter speed was 1/60 and focal length was 163. As it is a budget zoom lens, you were already at maximum aperture. So the camera slowed down the shutter speed to counter the darkness. But, at that focal length, 1/60 is too slow to get a sharp picture handheld. I'm surprised the auto mode didn't boost the Iso more to allow for a faster shutter speed.
What would have helped -- raise the iso, zoom less to reduce focal length and increase aperture, and use a tripod if possible.

i wish i could make sense of all that, lol. i really think i'm going to need to take a photography class. i've been reading "understanding exposure", but i'm pretty sure there are some steps left out. it said to change the aperture to 5.6, then use the dial to change the shutter speed until the viewfinder told me it was correct...it didn't do that. i stopped when the arrow got mid-range, which resulted in a pretty good photo, so i guess that's what it meant.
i'm thinking "photography for dummies" might be more my speed...lol.
