Hope you can help.
I've been asked to go and photograph an event this weekend. Basically I'll be walking round taking shots of kids doing various activities. There will also be people juggling, that sort of thing.
Can anyone give me some tips on avoiding blurred shots, but getting some nice sharp ones with blurred backgrounds, that kind of thing?
I'm using a Nikon D90 with a 18-200 lens
Many thanks in advance
fast shutter speed and the lens wide open to blur background and freeze movement
have a practice today.
Also closer to the camera the subject is, more out of focus the BG will be, see here:
