01 Shut­ter-pri­or­ity

Switch to shut­ter-pri­or­ity (S) mode and se­lect a suf­fi­ciently high shut­ter speed to freeze the ac­tion. This typ­i­cally varies be­tween around 1/250 and 1/1000 of a sec­ond, depend­ing on the speed at which the ob­ject is mov­ing.

02 Auto ISO

To guard against un­der­ex­po­sure (dark im­ages) when us­ing fast shut­ter speeds, se­lect Auto ISO. Un­der in­suf­fi­cient light­ing, the cam­era’s sen­si­tiv­ity set­ting will au­to­mat­i­cally be boosted by just enough to en­able a cor­rect ex­po­sure.

03 Con­tin­u­ous drive

Re­leas­ing the shut­ter at the crit­i­cal point can be dif­fi­cult in ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phy. Se­lect high­speed con­tin­u­ous drive mode and con­tin­u­ous AF, and shoot a rapid burst of sev­eral ex­po­sures for the great­est chance of nail­ing the shot.
