Photography Tips and Tricks - 38

Are you shooting a very fast animal or bird?   If you are not comfortable with manual mode, then shutter priority is your friend.   Set your shutter speed to at least 1/1000 and at least 3x your focal length.   So, if you have a 600mm lens then start at 1/1800 or 1/2000.  If you have a nifty-fifty, the use 1/1000 as your base starting point.

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
