Tips for action shots from an extremely amateur photographer
This is my brother. He races motocross and I am basically his personal photographer when it comes to the races so I've learned some stuff about it
First off I want to say this tip will benefit those with a DSLR(basically any camera with detachable lenses) I personally shoot with a Canon EOS Rebel T5 and I use my 75-300mm lens for the races
Don't use sports mode it's useless learn how to use your settings on M (manual mode) make sure you know how to properly set your ISO, Aperture, and shutter speed (I'm not good at explaining that stuff so definitely seek information from a professional) and also shoot on continuous for best results
Don't worry if you can't get super close to what you're shooting as long as your shot is frozen in action and IN FOCUS!! Crop can be your best friend never be afraid to crop
I mentioned shooting in continuous if you don't know what that means basically it takes tons of photos in a row which you can also do if you're shooting with say a phone just keep pressing that button! The more photos the better it sounds crazy but I usually have around 1000 photos per race
If you're like me and no matter how good your shot may have been you still feel the need to edit it Lightroom is probably your best shot but if you are also like me and can't afford the program's i will put some of the apps I use at the end
Try not to get too close I really struggle with this with my new lens because I have been using the lens that came with my camera for a year as it was the only one I had but no one likes a picture with the subjects head cut off
Make sure you are standing in a good spot where you can see most of the action if you are shooting something like motocross sometimes it's good to scope out the track before shooting so you you know where all the best shots are
Thanks for checking out my tip 😁👍
These are the apps I use I mostly use the photoshop apps and pics art all of these are free on the App Store (unfortunately they are not available on Mac you'll have to buy and actually Adobe creative cloud subscription)
