Get Your Camera Off Auto Mode

Augusta Rodeo, Montana

Taking sharp photos of fast subjects like the barrel racer in this shot is a challenge. Leaving your camera set to Auto mode reduces your chances of a great picture. By switching to Shutter Priority exposure mode, you can pick a fast shutter speed to freeze the action. And turning on continuous drive and continuous auto focus ensures you keep the horse and rider sharp.
