There are many ways you can capture the motion, movement or any kind of action. The best ways to capture a motion is either to blur it or to freeze it. The 'Motion-blur' is caused when the subject moves too rapidly to be captured by the camera. The blur is often represented in the form of streaks along the direction of the movement. The first thing that you need to understand for action photography is the use of shutter speed or exposure length. We need to have the shutter fast enough to capture the motion. The settings differ from photo to photo.
Whereas, the freezing motion is a technique to capture a subject where the movement or the action is very obvious. Like a flying aeroplane, a flying bird etc. This technique is often used in sports photography. It freezes the action and gives you a clear sharp picture.
Working around your shutter speed and the ISO can ensure a good picture that is clear and sharp. If you want a motion blur effect, use a slow shutter speed and if you want to freeze the action, use a fast shutter speed. If you want a motion-freeze effect on a subject which is running or jogging, a 1/250 second shutter speed is ideal to capture it.
