Hi everyone! First post here. Let me start by saying I don't know anything about photography however it is something I enough. I've taken some pictures that I really like so it's a testament to the quality of the Sony Nex 5K camera I use. It came with the 18-55 lens and I have purchased the 55-210 as well. I had so many questions! I started out using the automatic setting but that wasn't working very well for me. I've found that the sports action preset works pretty good for me because I don't know enough about the manual settings to use them. I was hoping someone could give me tips that would improve my skills. It's probably worth mentioning that I, think so anyway, have a good "feel" for what pictures to take. My technical skills are lacking sometimes. Here are some questions: 1-One thing i don't understand is I've seen some great shots of the moon on here. How can you get such great detail from the moon but I can't get shots like that of wildlife across my yard which is such a shorter distance? 2-Does anyone have any suggestions for fireworks shots? I'm going to baseball game in a few weeks that will have fireworks. Would love some great shots of them. 3-The last game I was at I didn't have the 55-210 lens and I used the 18-55 for excellent photos of the park. Am I being unrealistic of better shots/zoom with the 55-210 (I'll be the outfield)??? How close should I expect the zoom to be able to perform? 4-Are there any specific tips I should practice before heading to the game for capturing either scenario? 5-I don't use the lens hood to shoot with. Is this part of my problem getting great crisp shots every time? That's probably enough questions to start with. Thanks everybody!
