Little kids always like to play and run around. As a parent, you can click numerous pictures of them engaged in their favourite activities, but sometimes face difficulty in clicking good pictures when their kids are zooming around full speed.
Mothers don’t lose heart, capturing action photos is slightly tricky, but not difficult to master. There are two ways in which you can shoot action photos – Motion Blur and Freeze Motion.
So if your hyperactive school-going kids are into sports or baby is just too fast for the neighbourhood kids while playing, then go through these simple tips which will help you in clicking their pictures.
1. Action pictures are not something you can click with a camera phone as the quality will be very poor. So a good point-and-shoot camera or a DSLR would be great, if you already don’t have one, to click action pictures of your son or daughter.
2. Motion Blur can be achieved in a photo when you want to the speeding object to look smeared across the frame in the direction of the motion. The photo gives a sense of speed and relative motion and is blurred in appearance. So mothers attending their children’s sports day at school can click great pictures of them while they are running or cycling.
3. Motion Blur can be achieved by using slow shutter speed and clicking in ‘Shutter Priority’ mode. Do keep your camera steady or use a tripod.
4. Freeze Photo or Freeze Motion is a still photo of an object in action where every element of the photo is clearly visible. Speed and movement is usually obvious, like a picture of your girl playing Frisbee or swimming in a pool. This technique is popularly known as sports photography and is used by professionals in all sporting events.
5. Freeze motion is achieved by setting a fast shutter speed, maybe 1/250 or more. You need to focus on the frame and the object and only then go for the kill.
