Capture action and people

Learn how to shoot great portraits by using light, background, depth of field, lens choice and exposure along with some key camera settings.

Nikon School Tip: Freeze Sports Action

The key is using a high shutter speed. On compact cameras, use the sports scene mode. On a D-SLR, pick a high shutter speed of 1/500th of a second or above. This will freeze almost all action. If the light is low, adjust your ISO to a higher sensitivity (800-1600 ISO), which will allow you to select a faster shutter speed.
