What you will need
1. SLR Camera (or any camera with a manual mode)
2. Monopod (can be omitted if you have a steady hand)
3. moving subject
Step 1: Setting your camera to manual mode
First, make sure that your camera is in manual mode.
On most cameras, this is the M on the mode selection dial.
Along with manual mode, you will also want to change your focus setting to continuous mode.
This allows your camera to continuously focus on and track a moving object as long as you have the shutter release button halfway depressed.
Step 2: Adjusting the shutter speed
To start out, set your shutter speed at 1/30th of a second.
Step 3: Preparing for the shot
Connect the camera to the monopod and place the strap either around your neck or wrap it around your palm.
Because you will be moving around a bit during this practice, you will want to make sure that your camera is secure.
