Best camera settings for freezing action

Capturing the peak of the action when you’re shooting fast-moving subjects takes skill, timing and concentration, so you need to be sure that your settings are right before you start.

Things you can pre-set

When you’re freezing moving subjects you need to be in control of your camera’s shutter speed, so start by selecting shutter-priority mode. Then set a fast shutter speed such as 1/1000 sec, although you may need to alter this, depending on the speed of the subject.

To enable you to use a fast shutter speed you’ll also need to set a high ISO in all but the brightest of lighting conditions. The precise setting will depend on the amount of light, but try ISO 800 as a starting point.

Photo composition tips: how to search out new views of familiar scenes

These days, much of what you might want to take pictures of has probably been photographed countless times before. To avoid shooting the same photo as everyone else out there, you need to try to find a fresh perspective.

As photographers, most of us see the ‘obvious’ way to shoot a subject instantly, but there is always another way to shoot anything. We don’t mean simply taking a step to the left or right and looking again, though that would technically give you a different view; here we are aiming to find something completely new.

With some subjects you can get a variety of angles, but you can also try moving closer to achieve greater detail and reveal something new. You can even shoot the same angle, but add a creative twist.
