Problem picture #8

What's wrong with this picture?


There are two problems shown in this picture.

Shutter speed too slow.

Blur is evident in both the foreground and in the basketball players in the distance, indicating too slow a shutter speed to stop the action. If you can't switch to a faster shutter speed and still obtain proper exposure, you will need to switch to a faster film or to a higher sensitivity setting in your digital camera.

Someone moving into the frame.

Someone crossed in front just as the shutter was tripped. The person's movement is also shown as blur. You should always try to find a shooting position that won't have too much traffic crossing in front. If you are unable to get into a position where there won't be people moving in front of your camera, keep in mind to use your peripheral vision to check for someone's approach, and time your shots to avoid getting them into your frame.
