Ever feel like you’ve missed the shot because of your quick kid or vigorous subject? Sometimes actually capturing the right moment can seem impossible. This is especially hard when photographing wiggly babies and kids playing sports. Next time you are trying to get the shot and your subject is a mover or a shaker, try shooting with the burst mode.

In this mode your camera will shoot multiple frames very quickly. This setting is available on most cameras and some smart phones too. It can be accessed from the settings option on your camera, or by simply holding down the shutter button of your smart phone for a few seconds. So now you will never miss a fun moment again!
