    How to capture moving objects without the blur in the image? I have tried adjusting the shutter speed.

    The higher the shutter speed, the more likely it is that you’ll get a clear image of something in motion. That being said, most cameras have a sport or an action mode, this is ideal for amateurs because we don’t need to adjust the settings manually.

    Thank you, John. I hope to get some good action photos very soon.

    Panning is a useful technique. All you have to do is just set your camera to a low shutter speed, probably 1/60 of a second. Press down the trigger and track your object with your camera and when you hear a clicking sound, there you have it.

    A lot of practice goes into clicking a perfect frame of moving objects.

    Never tried taking such photographs for the sheer fear of failure…..will try to get some soon.

    It’s never been my strongpoint if I’m honest. Adjusting the shutter speed does help a lot of the time in reducing motion blur, but it’s really hard to get that crisp, sharp look as it were stationary.

    If I want to, I’ll just crank the shutter speed right down to one of the lowest settings and try frame it right. I think some of the blur effects that people do are really artistic, where everything seems stretched. I guess you could do that when editing it though.
