Tips to take pictures of moving object while traveling
Even if the scene of the place you visit is amazing, it doesn’t guarantee the success of beautiful photos. Sometimes, instead of still objects you find moving one which makes it harder for you to take pictures. Capturing objects in motion is challenging but it is not impossible to do. Here are some tips:
- Being able to capture the moment of moving objects such as flying bird, running man, or moving train during your trip give you self-satisfaction. To decide what kind of picture you really want to capture, you need to decide the final effect you want to convey through the pictures. When you know what effect you want to show through the pictures, you will be able to choose the right approach. Capturing moving train for example, you may want to focus on the train and let its surrounding blurry or the other way round. It is up to your preference but make sure to decide clearly.
- The shutter speed does matter when capturing moving objects. You may need to adjust the shutter speed first before taking any picture. With fast shutter speed, you will be able to capture sharper focus on moving object while blurring the background. The slower shutter gives the opposite effects. It will make moving object looks blurry due to more lights in. Try different shutter speed to see which one of them you prefer.
- You need to adjust the aperture as well or taking pictures of moving objects. This will help you taking better pictures in the matter of lighting. It can help minimizing overexposed images due to the light pass in. once everything adjusted, you can trust your tripod to take picture steadily. Thus, the background of the pictures will stay crisp and in focus when you want to make the moving objects look blurry.
- You may want to try pan technique. This trick is a bit tricky but won’t hurt to try. This technique requires you to move along with the objects while taking pictures. You need to match the movement with speed and direction of the objects. This is challenging technique. However, you can always improve if you keep practicing. Whenever you take a trip, make sure to practice your skill so you will be able to capture priceless moments.
