Getting a subject to sit still and smile for the camera can be a drag (kids get antsy, and a lot of adults feel self-conscious in front of the camera for more than two seconds), but you’re likely to have more enthusiastic and cooperative subjects if you’re asking them to re-create an action shot over and over. Your movie date will toss popcorn three feet into the air and catch it in his mouth a dozen or more times, your party guests will throw confetti as much as you ask them, your kids will run through the sprinklers with Grandma again and again and again.
Those are my best tips for getting great action shots this summer. What are yours?
