action shots require fast shutter speeds. if the shutter speed is to slow, the result will be blurry.

not sure if your cam has Shutter Priority or not, but this is where it will come in handy. start at 1/250 and work your way up (if lighting permits).

hope that helps.

well, if you don't have S Mode (Shutter Priority) then try your Scene mode under (active outdoor). This mode should increase your shutter speed, as to what, i'm not sure but the details are probably in your manual.

You can also check your EXIF info for the Shutter speed (Exposure Time) if your camera has that feature. the EXIF info will show details for each picture you take. F-Number, Exposure Time, ISO Speed, etc....

if your running Windows XP, you can also check your EXIF info. (if available from your digi cam).

- download your image(s) from your digi cam.
- from Windows Explorer, right click on the image and select Properties
- click on the Summary Tab
- click on Advanced Button

you should get something like this...

hope this helps.

When taking action/sport pictures, PAN the camera with the object/person you are taking a picture of.

PANNING :

"Panning is a technique where the camera is moved to follow a moving subject, keeping it in the same position in the viewfinder. It is more effective when the subject is moving across the picture than when it is moving towards (or away from) the camera. It produces a relatively sharp subject seen against a blurred background and can be very effective in giving an impression of movement and speed.

To pan using a handheld camera, you should swing from the hips and follow the movement across, pressing the shutter only in mid swing and continuing to follow the motion through. With practice you can get the effect even better using a pan and tilt head on a tripod."

Firstly, this is an awesome addition to the forum.

Secondly, KL, I think I have some tough news, but its going to be very tough for you to capture the type of shots that you are looking to do so. Panning is a good suggestion and it will definiately help you out, but what you lack is the quick af. Shutter speeds, is just a duration in which the lens is open for, so, although you want a fast shutter speed to stop action, something like 1/400s, it won't help cause you won't be focused on the subject. When you take a picture, you have to focus first then take the picture second, and I doubt you are lacking the latter part, although that another discussion.

I have started to wander into sports photography, my sister plays for ut, so I ahve had two outings, and this is my suggestion to you,

Fast glass, f/2 for me, some are satisfy with f/2.8,

fast shutter speeds, 1/320 or 1/400 ,

ISO 1600, 800 if your lucky.

Here is a pick I took recently,



This is my sister...

If you need help let me know, or better yet, let me know where your cousin plays, I'm always up for more training.
