Alright I need some help, I've taken great pics with my canon rebel on setting TV speed 1000-1200 ISO 100, but what about during the evening as the sun starts to set I just get dark images even when I adjust the ISO to 400,800,or even 1600? I am talking about using during wakeboarding with speed pics in mind not just noraml pics...

You might have to slow the shutter speed down a little more. Shoot on Manual with Your aperture wide open and adjust your shutter speed with Your light meter.

I don't remember how to set the aperture on a Rebel but I'll take a guess that the dial on top sets the shutter speed and the directional buttons (side to side) on the back of the camera set aperture. I could be wrong so read your manual.

You can also shoot on aperture priority and set Your aperture wide open and the camera will automatically set Your shutter speed.

in low light situations i shoot in manual. keep a good eye on the light meter, its your friend. To adjust the aperature theres an av button to the right of the eye piece. hold that down and spin the dial and watch the f number go up or down on the lcd. In lower light situations i try not to go higher than 800 ISO, no lower than 800 shutter speed, and i keep my aperature wide open. However, IMO, a sharp shot of the rider frozen in the frame with noise (created from higher ISO levels, typically 1600), is better than a blurred rider with no noise.

What mode You shoot in is some what of a preference thing but I find the better I get the more I shoot in manual(unless I'm feeling lazy)

I suggest You do some reading and learn all the functions of Your camera and how different settings will change the out come of Your photos.

Settings will change so there is no one setting that will work all the time.

Here's a link that will help You out a little. http://www.wakeboarder.com/display.phtml?id=553

yes, read that article walt posted 2 times. then read the rebel manual 2 times. i did this and basically know the camera in and out now. I've been reading a ton of articles online and have really learned a lot in the past couple months.

manual vs tv mode is user preference. you might find that you want the exact depth of field your looking for so you would then shoot in manual. but if all you really care about is the shutter speed and the DOF is not really that big of deal, then i shoot in tv if the lighting permits it.
