My SS15 is starting to get into photography, and our trip to the F1 last year inspired him to start practicing to get good shots. He hopes to actually get a car in frame, in focus this year!!
As a fellow amateur, I can relate, so I’m getting him to practice with high shutter speeds and also a technique called panning.
As always, there are much better articles out there on these techniques than I could write, so enjoy the links and shots below.
- Sports Photography, from Photography basics, starts to introduce preparedness and the importance of shutter speed and burst mode.
- DPS in their usual straightforward style has a really good article on the panning technique – capturing moving subjects.
- I really like the troubleshooting part of 640 Pixel’s article on sports photography.
Now for some action!
And check out this Flickr Gallery on Sports Photography for more action shots!
