Always try to anticipate the action. To capture fast moving action, set your camera on rapid frame advance and focus tracking. To freeze the action, use a fast shutter speed of at least 1/500th of a second.

I am working on a new e-book project - and could use your help.
It's an inspirational e-book that includes (per page):
• Inspirational quote that matches the photograph;
• Subject name;
• Camera/exposure information.
What you see here is a sample page. The idea is to offer some inspiration/motivation and a very quick photography tip – info that you can have on your iPhone or iPad.
Basically, it's a feel-good e-book that helps you with your photography.
Whatta ya think of the idea? Please let me know here. Any ideas? For example, would you like to see a Photoshop tip, such as (in this case):
In Photoshop: Sharpen selectively. Here, sharpening only the lions made them stand out more in the scene. Sharpening the soft background would have detracted from the subjects and increased the noise.
