Single Shot with Action Shots
Let's, go ahead, move to the second demonstration. What we're going to do now is have you running along this road, we're going to shoot it from the side and I'm going to go ahead and switch to my rebel while we do this, but what we're going to do is we can use single shot still, when we're shooting basically perpendicular, toothy action, what I mean is if he vets running on a road going this way and I'm shooting going this way, well, the relative distance from me too, my subject is really quite similar at different points of that path. Yes, it does change a little bit, but as long as we're shooting kind of further back and we're not necessarily at at one point to our f one point oh, it's still going to be sharp enough that we can still use single focus in these kind of situations where we just kind of track over the subject, I'm going to show you guys exactly. I mean, I'm gonna stop talking. Let's, go ahead and get our setting set up on our canon rebel here we're gonna do is I'm going ...
to shoot it f to let's, go ahead and get a reading on the scene. In this case, I can use my live you and my preview, and it looks like at a hundred of a shutter speed. So a hundred of a second at f two and is a one hundred is right about it's spot on. I'm gonna go actually tow one one thousand one without going to freeze all the action really well, the other thing I'm going to do, I need to make sure is let's, go ahead and move into the menu. I'm going to turn on my single shooting were going to make sure that it's actually on continuous shooting, so we get more than one frame at a time. Ok, so after I get the focus, I'm going to keep shooting as she moves through the frame. So there's a line in the road that's actually just perfectly kind of showing where she's going to be running, where the action is going to be occurring. So what I'm gonna do is just pre focus ryan that line, and then I was going to hold it all the way through the shot. I think I see it works, actually incredibly well. Let's, go ahead and just grab our pre focus, okay, I'm gonna do is just hold down the shutter halfway to hold it, and event let's, start the action. Perfect. All right, that's. Perfect. We've got the shot. We use single shot in this case, even though there was action going on. Okay, so now, let's, move on to the servo, moz.
