How to photograph fast moving objects ?

Tip 411 (Use a preset): Many cameras have a preset for capturing fast moving objects. This setting is more often found in point-and-shoot cameras that come with a lot of presets / scenes, but even some Digital SLR’s have them. If you feel that you are not proficient with the settings manually, use this preset.

Tip 412 (Use focal length change to reduce blurring): If you are pretty close to the subject, then there is a greater chance that there will be a blurring of the photo. However, one way to reduce this blurring is by stepping back, attaching a zoom lens, and then using the zoom feature to get closer. This give the sensor of the camera more time to do the focus trick.

Tip 413 (Use burst mode): When something is moving fast, if your camera has a burst mode, then use the burst mode. The burst mode gets the camera to capture multiple photos, one after the other, and it is very much possible that one of the photos in burst mode can capture a photo that is a great photo of the moving subject.

Tip 414 (Try and get a photo when the object moves away or towards you): When you shoot a photo of a moving object, it is far easier to shoot the photo when the subject is moving away or towards you rather than moving horizontally. The camera sensor uses more pixels when you are trying to shoot an object moving at right angles to the camera rather than away or from the camera.

Tip 415 (Observer and predict): When you are watching a moving object, be sure to watch the movement over a period of time. This will help you properly estimate the place where the moving object will be when you shoot, as well as help you determine the best place where to shoot the subject.
