Transcript

Let's go ahead and move to the second demonstration. What we're going to do now is event I'm going to 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 shots. Still, when we're shooting basically perpendicular to the action. What I mean is, if you vets running on a road going this way, and I'm shooting going this way, well, the relative distance from me to 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 F 1.2 or F 1.0, it's still going to be sharper enough and 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 what I mean. I'm gonna stop talking. Let's go ahead and get our settings set up on our Canon Rebel here, we're gonna do is I'm going to shoot an f2 let's go ahead and get a reading on the scene. In this case, I can use my live view and my preview and it looks like at 800 have a shutter speed so 800 of a second at f two and ISO 100 is right about spot on. I'm gonna go actually to one 1000 One with thousands are 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, we're going to make sure that it's actually on continuous shooting, so we get more than one frame at a time.

Okay, 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 going to do is just pre focus right on that line, and I'm just gonna 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 going to do is just hold down the shutter halfway to hold it.

And Yvette. Let's start the action. Perfect. All right, that's perfect. We got the shot and we use single shot in this case, even though there was action going on. Okay, so now let's move on to the servo modes.
