Taking some sport photos

This is my sport photography that is small enough for cycling kit unpacked. You can see that the Thirsty Al that holds my Lumix is strapped to the Soupansalad Son-O that I use to hold all the lenses: you can even see the Quarfie bucket peeking out of it.

Other things you can see. The Panasonic Lumix DMX-LX1, Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G VR, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D, Nikon EN-EL3 spare battery, Native Eyevare Dash XP and spare lenses (for cycling), and the Nikon SB-800 flash.

Things that I stuff in there that you can’t see: Lexar USB 2.0 CF drive and 2GB Sandisk Extreme CF card, Sandisk Ultra II SD card (left it in the Thirsty Al), gel filters for the SB-800, 77mm filters (Hoya 81A + polarizer, Hoya multi-coated UV filter, ExpoDisc white balance filter), wallet.

I also carry my Nikon D70, Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G, RRS L-bracket, Zing handstrap, and UpStrap. But I was using that to take this shot.

I removed the distracting background and changed the tone of the shot to make it look rougher.

There are many ways to improve the quality of the photographs you take. In this article, we will start with the basics and provide some surefire tips that can improve your skill level.

Pretend that the viewfinder is split into thirds with horizontal and vertical lines. Swing your camera to where the subject sits at an intersection of those imaginary lines, and you will be rewarded with a creative viewpoint in the final image.

A dSLR is a necessity if you’re aiming to be serious about your photography. The relatively new camera utilizes a single lens, yet allows you to preview the images right away. For larger images and more detailed photographs, a full frame digital single lens reflex camera is the best choice.

The camera settings you use are dependent on the kind of photo you’re shooting. For example, a shot of a moving object requires different camera settings than a photo of a still subject. If you have the right setting, your photos will look great.

When taking a photo, shoot quickly. You can never tell how fast that fleeting moment will flee, so always be ready for it. The moment can be gone when smiles get weary, children and pets get restless, or the scene changes. If you focus too much on perfecting all your camera’s settings, you can lose the shot you want to take. So don’t stress yourself out too much over this.

Try to create a type of silhouette. A sunset is the traditional method for creating a silhouette, however there are many other methods as well. If the difference in lighting between the subject and background is significant, with the background being brighter, it will create a silhouette. You can create the perfect silhouette when is you place your subject right in front of bright objects such as a window or a flash that is off camera. Occasionally, this type of shot might have a face or body outline that is less than flattering.

Start shooting pictures right away when you leave for your trip. Don’t forget to take pictures of your journey, as it can provide images as memorable as the destination itself. Record the entire experience and look at public spaces, such as airports, as a goldmine for capturing interesting images.

Maintain only a short distance between your camera lens and your subject. That way, the object spans the entire field of view. This works really well when taking a picture of a flower or other non-living object. You can use zoom when you can’t get physically close enough.

When you finally find that perfect moment to snap a shot, make sure not to move at all when you press the shutter. Even hold your breath, if you have to. The slightest motion can wreak havoc on your image. For the perfect shot, you must take time and focus your energy on getting the perfect view and angle before pressing the shutter button.

The camera settings should be kept simple. Master one control at a time, such as the shutter speed or the aperture, before taking on the next. Doing so enables you to concentrate on the photos themselves instead of wasting time messing around with camera settings during which time your subject bores and moves on.

Invest in a quality tripod when you mean business and want to take exceptional photos. Tripods do one thing very well: keep the camera from shaking. It becomes almost a necessity if you do a lot of shots in low-light settings. When it comes to timed photography and self-portraits, a tripod is very valuable.

Taking great photos does require a natural talent for artistry, but education is also a key factor in photography. If you’re an amateur photographer looking for a way to get started, then the tips in this article are for you.
