Just u/l from your computer.  Far easier.  You will have to input the ULR of Photobucket to use it.

What about this lens for night football shots?  I found appears to be a good deal on a used one.

Re: Newbie with t5 with lens questions

These pictures were taken with this lens I bought off Ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/161759563761?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

 

Lighting was obviously pretty dark but wasn't completely night time.  Distance was about 80-100 yards out. No photo touchups were done to these picturesIMG_0355.JPG

Well although I was impressed with what I got, I feel that when it's totally dark, they may not be all that great

"they may not be all that great"

 

You said it not me!  Smiley Happy  So since you did, I agree.  They aren't that good now.  When conditions get worse, so will the images.  The bottom line is you need a f2.8 or faster lense for this kind of work.  A f5.6 lene\s is just going to be a real challenge to use.

I agree these pics don't look as good as they could, and yes, as stated a faster lens will do better.  But till you do buy a another lens you can make your pics more acceptable in post.  Just a suggestion till you are able to get better lens.  Actually to me these pics are not that bad.  They won't make the cover of national geographic but they'll pass.   Though i suppose everyone sees pics from different perspective.
