If you want to control motion in your photos, set your dial to the Shutter Priority Mode or TV Mode. Shutter priority makes it easier for us to control the actions on our photo, in this mode all you need to do is select a shutter speed an the camera will choose an appropriate aperture.

All you have to remember now is this, if you want to freeze the action of a moving subject you will need a fast shutter speed, and if you need to show a sense of motion or blur the subject you will need a slower or longer shutter speed.

A fast shutter speed will range from 1/60 to 1/1000 and up. A slow shutter speed will go from 1/30 to -1, -2.
