Is working with your Shutter speed confusing you?  Here are some photography tips for shutter speeds in specific situations. The speeds listed are the needed speeds to freeze the action under normal conditions. If you want to blur the action, decrease the shutter speed to be lower than your focal length. To adjust for a very fast situation, increase the shutter speed.
  • Football - 1/400
  • Baseball/Softball/Hockey - 1/350
  • Kids Running - 1/350
  • People Jumping - 1/250
  • Golf Balls - 1/3200
  • Water Splashing - 1/350
Sweet Shot Day
