    Best camera settings for street photography with movement

    Add a sense of speed to your shots of people walking or racing traffic by panning the camera with the moving subject.

    With your camera set to Shutter Priority, set a shutter speed of 1/15sec, and then try a slower speed such as 1/8sec or even 1/4sec, togive more blur for slow-moving subjects.

    How to set up your camera to add movement to your street photography

    Shutter speed   1/15 sec
    In Shutter Priority exposure mode, use the input dial to select a shutter speed of 1/15sec. Take some test shots, and choose a longer shutter speed for more blur, or a shorter one for less blur.
