Use Continuous Shooting to Get Better Photos

Pole Vaulter Shot with Continuous Shooting

We’ve all been at some event that we wanted to capture with that perfect photo.  And, as a very wise man once said, life moves pretty fast, especially when you are trying to freeze it in a photo.  Enter continuous shooting!  This little tip will give you a better chance of capturing that fleeting moment in a way that you’ll love.

What Is Continuous Shooting?

Continuous shooting is a setting on most digital cameras that allows you to take a series of shots rapidly in a burst.  Instead of pushing the shutter button down repeatedly, you can simply hold the shutter button and capture a series of photos one right after the other.  The number of photos you are able to take in each burst depends on your camera and the memory card you are using.

How To Enable Continuous Shooting

All you need to do is look for the continuous shooting icon:

This icon will be located in a different place on each camera, but it should look similar. Once enabled, all you have to do is hold down the shutter button to take a burst of photos.
