The art of capturing moving subjects is one of the toughest photography skills to nail. It requires patience, quick reflexes, and a stroke of luck to land that magic moment. If you do find yourself in the right place and time to capture a galloping herd of horses cutting across the prairie or a lion chasing after its prey while on safari, these nifty photography tips would certainly come in handy. 

If you're using a camera

1. Remember the rule of thirds, place your focal point or subject slightly off-centre in landscape or portrait where the eyes are naturally drawn to for perfectly framed shots.

2. To capture a moving object, set your camera on shutter priority mode and use the highest shutter speed available (1/500 to 1/250) to freeze your subject in time.

1. Panoramic shots will ensure you capture the entire view — regardless of how far the scene stretches. If your phone does not have a pre-set, try downloading a highly-rated and reviewed app that will allow you to create stunning photos in seconds.

2. Use the burst mode on your smartphone to capture every shot.

3. To achieve a blurred background with your subject in focus, download a Slow Shutter app which allows you to use a slower shutter speed while panning your camera along the subject's direction.
