Question about Canon EOS Rebel K2 35mm SLR Camera
Action shots generally require a fast shutter speed -- to freeze the motion. So you need plenty of light or a "fast" lens. A fast lens is one in which the aperture opens further to let in more of light. The smaller the number of the maximum aperture, the faster the lens, so a 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 lens is "faster" than a 28-105mm f/4.0-5.6 lens. But usually, faster lenses cost more.
For the settings on the camera, the Rebel K2 has a Sports image mode (silhouette of a runner) on the control dial which should get you appropriate settings for most action shots.
If you want to set the shutter speed yourself use the Tv mode, and with a fixed shutter speed, the camera will set the correct aperture. Watch in the viewfinder -- if the aperture value is flashing, it means the shot will be underexposed. You will have to select a slower shutter speed.
Another way to get action shots with limited light or a "slower" lens is to use film with higher ISO/ASA. ISO 100 film is good for daylight shots, but for inside shots or evening shots, use ISO 400 film. Higher ISO film is "grainier", so enlargements will show less detail.
