Capturing extreme sports and action events is all about speed and timing. In this article, we will talk about how to set up action camera to capture well-detailed images that are full of drama and excitement.
Extreme sports and action photography is one of the most challenging yet thrilling form of photography. They ultimate key of capturing the best images is to set up your action camera properly. So when you’re in action, you’ll not miss the most exciting part of the event.
As what I’ve read in John’s blog, the secret to action photography is to balance the settings. So, the following action camera basic settings that we are about to discuss are very simple to setup. Most of these camera settings work well in all types and forms of photography.
Adjust Shutter Speed
Adjusting the shutter speed is very important when capturing sports and action photography. If your setting is not set properly, you’ll get the most blurry shots ever and even post processing software can’t help you fix that.
This is also connected with shutter speed setting. By opening the aperture, it will help you capture motion or moving objects without blurring it.
Increasing ISO levels
Because sports and action photography is about speed, and your shutter speed and aperture are all set to a high point, you also need to increase the levels of your ISO to avoid any unusual blurring and/or spots on images.
However, there are still times when you need to lower the ISO level. It depends on how fast the subjects are. You always have to keep in mind that it is better to have an image with noise than capture a blurry subject.
Overall, action photography can be easy, yet sometimes tricky. But these camera settings discussed above will help you capture amazing shots without blurring it. Learning how to have the right camera set up would take a lot of time, but if you really want to be a good action photographer, then you have no choice but to create your own strategy and ideas.
