1 Keep your speed up

Work in shut­ter-pri­or­ity mode, di­alling in a fast shut­ter speed and set­ting the ISO to Auto, as this way the cam­era will then au­to­mat­i­cally ad­just the aper­ture and sen­si­tiv­ity to pro­duce a bal­anced ex­po­sure.

2 Shoot in bursts

Fire the cam­era in short, sharp bursts so that the buf­fer won’t fill up and the cam­era won’t slow down. This will also en­cour­age you to an­tic­i­pate (tip 3) rather than ‘spray and pray’.

3 An­tic­i­pate the mo­ment

Know your sub­ject and learn to pre­dict their next move, so you can pre-fo­cus the lens at the right dis­tance, speed up the cam­era’s re­ac­tion time, and cap­ture the de­ci­sive mo­ment.
