Time is of the utmost essence. This is particularly true for action photography. Photography is most of the times related to capturing still objects. It usually provides still pictures. But action photography genre is totally different. It captures objects in motion. There are usually two types of action photographs, one which captures a single moment and another that has shows a series of actions, allowing to see the whole action in one picture. Most people attach action photography to Sports photography only. Sure, sports is the best place for getting the best shots of action, but action photography is lot more than sports. Waves splashing, children jumping, animals running, kids playing, etc. are all examples of action photography.

It is true that for a great action photograph you need good equipments, but even with great equipments, if the timing is not proper than that photograph comes off for nothing. Along with timing there are a few tips that you need to follow to capture the proper action. You need to increase your shutter speed, a slow shutter speed would easily result in a blurry image. Also try to use the burst mode, so that you get 4-5 pictures at a time and you could easily choose a proper one. Also try to keep custom white balance so that you could get a proper light when picturing indoor sports!
