Shooting Motion

When a subject is in motion, the camera will blur the shot if the shutter speed is too slow (Figure 3.23) Sometimes this makes for an interesting effect, but if you want to see the motion frozen (without a blur), you have to use a faster shutter speed. If your camera has the option to manually set shutter speed, simply adjust it to a faster setting (from, say, 1/60 to 1/125 of a second). Some cameras have an option to set the ISO or film speed. This setting imitates a film camera using a “faster” film (Figure 3.24). If you change the ISO setting from 100 to 400, the camera will use a faster shutter speed and give you the frozen motion you're looking for (Figure 3.25).

Figure 3.23. The shutter speed was too slow to freeze the motion, so Megan's kicking foot is a blur.
