Have you ever tried to capture action sports shots of your family? If so, you’ve probably discovered that it isn’t easy. Sometimes the images turn out blurry, or boring, or maybe you miss the shot altogether. Sound familiar? A professional-looking image is easier to capture using a DSLR camera, a fast lens, and a fast memory card. Here are a few photo tips to get you started:
If you want to freeze the action, use your camera’s Sports Mode for an automatic fast shutter speed, or set the exposure to TV for Shutter Priority and manually dial the shutter speed to 1/250th of a second. If your images still look blurry, keep raising your shutter speed.
Light is really important when photographing movement. If you’re outside on a bright sunny day you can capture action easily, but what if the light is fading or you’re indoors? Just raise your ISO or use your on-camera flash.
Check out the surroundings. If there are distractions in the background, move around to get a better shot. You can also get up close to the action by using a long, telephoto zoom lens.
Action happens very fast. To capture images in quick succession, select your camera’s Continuous Mode and hold your finger down on the shutter button. And speaking of fast, it’s important to use a fast memory card that records the images as quickly as you capture them.
I like to use the SanDisk Extreme® UHS-I memory card. It’s eight times faster than ordinary memory cards**Ordinary SDHC memory cards offer up to 5MB/s write speed. 1 megabyte = 1 million bytes. , which makes it perfect for continuous burst mode shots. Plus its large capacity gives me more room to store RAW+JPEG images, so I never miss a shot.
