Advice to stop motion blur
Sep 30, 2012

I have just bought my first DSLR. I have a twin lense kit Canon 650. I will be taking this camera on holidays to Fiji in a few weeks and have been messing with it so I have at least some idea when I'm there. One thing I can't figure out is how to stop things that are moving from being blurry. I was taking pictures of my dog as she was walking around and unless she was perfectly still the pic was blurry. So far my results are no better than my $100 point and shoot. I tried making the shutter speed faster but all that did was make the pictures really dark. What am I doing wrong? I'm a complete noob when it comes to DSLR's
