Action shots at night... mmmmnot my favorite thing.

I have no problem shooting at night, and as you can see from some of the shots from previous posts, I actually love it. Action shots at night on the other hand, I'm not really in to. Why? Well, mostly because I haven't taken the time to actually DO IT.

ISO for these (and many others) was at 3200. That's pretty good for the setting. The light was OK and I figured I could shoot at 1/200 and f1.4 so I could capture some decent action shots. I would have preferred to shoot at 1/500 of a second, but I would have needed to increase ISO, and that would mean more noise from my processor. I don't like noise. SO, my settings stayed as described.

I used "Autofocus Continuous" for these shots and the camera did pretty well. I'm satisfied. If you're wondering, I use the Panasonic G85 (G8 here in Japan).

Post-process edits weren't too complicated. I reduced the noise a bit and cooled the image temperature down just a tad. Red lights everywhere.
