Whether it’s a game-winning touchdown, knock-out punch, or celebration after a sunken putt, most of us probably have a favorite iconic sports image that still gives you chills. Sports photography is fast-paced, exciting, demanding and frustrating. A game can offer many opportunities to get great shots and provide the same opportunities to miss what could have been an amazing moment. But with lots of practice, you’ll become more comfortable working quickly and knowing what to look for to get professional-level sports photos.
In this three-class workshop, learn to be confident on the sidelines of the game knowing you’ve got everything covered. In the first online class, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the basics of sports shooting techniques, what to look for in a sports photo, and how to tell the story of the game through a variety of scene-setters, action, “sportraits” and detail frames.
For the on-location shoot, we will meet up in Dallas at an outdoor game or team practice to put into action what you learned in class. You must wear a mask during the shoot. There are no exceptions. If you don’t plan to wear a mask, then please do not register for this class.
The third class will be an online image review with a supportive critique and group discussion. We’ll end with a virtual gallery exhibit of selections from everyone’s images.
