But the light are usually harsh so with this parade I was heading for shade and tried to avoid mixed lighting. But with this shot I have to go wide to capture everything. I was shooting in Aperture Priority but I was conscious of my ISO as I was in shade. I bump the ISO up to 400 and shoot it away.
If you want to freeze action like this one, the minimum shutter speed is 1/1000 of a second. That's the rule in photography that you want to take note, and the faster or higher shutter speed if you want a dramatic shot like mud flying if you happen to shoot motor sports rally racing.
