Thank you!! I didn’t have any time to prepare for this. The guy came in and handed me a list of topics and asked if I was ready. 

Tom Sapp says:

If something is in motion and you photograph it, you have documented motion with photography. Photo = light, graphy = capture. So yes to photograph motion is to capture it. Your second point is correct. Showing or allowing motion and stopping or freezing motion is the proper verbiage for the specific techniques. Thank you for your question

Tom Sapp says:

Longer lenses cut the amount of light down going in the camera due to the distance between the front element and the recording sensor. Subjects that are moving very fast and you are trying to stop the motion with your aperture wide open still getting blur, the only thing left is to up the ISO. I use a D3s shooting at 12000 ISO making beautiful 30×40 metallic prints often. Shoot RAW and use lightroom to remove grain. Thank you for posting these questions.

Why would you need a high ISO for a decent shutter speed in broad daylight??? That horse photo is in broad daylight – you would never need more than ISO 200 for that photo!

A higher ISO will give you a higher shutter speed, sure! It will also give you a whole lot of grain and make your photo useless for bigger prints.

Will Jessel says:

you wont capture motion at a high shutter speed, you’l freeze motion

I’ve been taking on the challenge of photographing roller derby in a stadium without using flash. Got a cool effect using sports mode on my DSLR – TV 0.4, AV 5.6, ISO 400 – got parts of the skaters in focus and other parts blurred, which gave a good impression of movement but a bit artier than I’d intended! Panning seemed to help in some of my other shots, if I could pick a skater to follow!
