Preschool Photography Tips
Camera Settings: Shooting/Exposure Mode
In general, when shooting young children preschool age that moves fast all the time, you want the highest shutter speed possible . You might think that demands using Shutter Priority mode and dialing-in a fast shutter speed. That can work, but what we recommend to do is set camera to Aperture Priority mode at f/4 to f/8 (depending on how bright it is). This way, the camera will always give the fastest shutter speed possible for a given aperture and this is very helpful. This also is the range where most lenses give peak performance, as far as optical quality and sharpness.
It’s difficult to keep pace with autofocus technology these days but for preschool and younger kids it’s best to use the center autofocus point (or points) and use continuous autofocus.
