    Creative photo ideas for January: 08 Shoot animals in action

    Getting sharp shots of wild animals can be challenging. Throw in low-light levels and a subject constantly on the move to find food, and it can be a disappointment when you review your shots.

    One option is to purposely choose a slow shutter speed that amplifies blur and creates an impressionistic image – as wildlife pro Ben Hall has done for this shot of black-headed gulls.

    “Images that depict a sense of motion can be difficult to capture successfully, and one of the key aspects to getting it right is your choice of shutter speed,” confirms Ben.

    “I took several shots at various shutter speeds until I found the desired setting. I then selected this shutter speed manually in Shutter Priority mode, and let the camera set the corresponding aperture.

    “Take as many images as possible: the results vary even when using the same shutter speed!”

    * The most effective results are often those that combine an element of sharpness with blur.
    * When photographing an active animal, choose your camera’s continuous autofocus option and continuous drive setting.
