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.

Best Camera Settings for Studio Flash

Using flash as your only light source means that the colour and lighting effects are much more controllable and consistent than they are when using a natural light source such as sunlight. This means that you can confidently pre-set many of the settings on your camera.

Things you can pre-set

When you’re using studio flash as your only light source you have to use manual mode, as none of the automatic exposure modes will work with studio flash. Once you’ve selected manual mode you can also set the shutter speed to the fastest flash sync speed available on your camera.

The Best Beginner dSLR?

The Best Beginner dSLR?It’s probably one of the most commen questions asked in the photography forums - “I’m just becoming interested in photography, and my point-and-shoot camera/camera phone/other camera just isn’t cutting it anymore… So what’s the best beginner dSLR?” It’s the gateway question into the wonderful world of photography. The answer the budding photographer receives could shape their photographic purchases for years, even decades, to come. For those of us that participate regularly in photography forums like the Corner, it’s a question we come across frequently, and one we (hopefully, at least) answer with some thought.

For many, it usually comes down to choosing the (usually) newest and cheapest dSLR that’s made by _____ or _____ (fill in whatever company names you want - but it’s almost always Nikon and Canon these days). Several times a year, the answer will change - the Canon Digital Rebel, the Nikon D50, the Canon 550D, the Nikon D40, the Nikon D5000, and the list goes on. I asked on Twitter and our Facebook Fan Page, and almost every response I received was different - literally dozens of different answers with no real clear winner.

What it really comes down to is personal preference. If you’re in the market for a good, beginner dSLR, there are several to choose from, but before you make up your mind, head down to your local camera shop and hold them in your hand. Some cameras simply “feel right” in your hands, and that may be enough of a tie-breaker to pick one. Sure ‘camera X’ has slightly different features than ‘camera Y’, and ‘camera Z’ has more megapixels than ‘camera X’, but a smaller LCD screen - they all are a little different. But when it comes down to it, a good learner camera for me could be different from a good learner camera for you - we may have different photographic tastes and expectations, different sized hands, different subjects, different feature requirements. So the answer to the question “What is the best beginner dSLR?” is “whatever one seems to fit your photographic needs.”

Articles By Amy: Your Camera and Memory

So, you have purchased a good digital camera or even a dSLR, and you are wondering how to deal with your memory cards, what sorts of images should be kept or deleted, and what kind of compression you should use when saving images to a memory card. The answer to the first question – how to deal with your memory cards – is: buy as many as you can afford. The reason for that is actually the answer to the second question – what images should be kept and which deleted? All images should be kept.

Articles By Amy: How to Take Beautiful Landscape Photos Using a Standard Point and Shoot Camera

Articles By Amy: How to Take Beautiful Landscape Photos Using a Standard Point and Shoot CameraLandscape photography is a great place to use creativity, and unique perspective, even if presented with a flat or unchallenging image. For example, you are on a road trip, you read the road sign that says “Scenic Overlook”; you pull in, get out the camera, hold it at eye height and take the picture. It is scenic; you shouldn’t have to compose the image, right? Wrong. Photographing landscapes and scenery should be a creative experience, even with a point and shoot camera. Look at the image, analyze it, look at it a different way, climb up on a picnic table or lay down in the grass, and experience the view through your own perspective, then capture that with your camera.
