*About Action Images

Good action photos are dependent upon many things: timing, viewpoint, closeness and sometimes just good luck. Action shots are often a hit and miss affair with sports -– due to the nature of each game, the opportunity to get a good photograph of a player during a game may not eventuate due to many things – the player doesn’t see much action (or even be on-field for very long), sight is impeded by other players, all action is on the far side of the field, or with their head turned away. Different sports offer different possibilities.

All shots are based on action and emotional moments throughout the event. I also try to capture each of the participants individually, although I can’t guarantee everyone will be included in our final selection. If you wish to have an action photo taken, I will do it on the basis that you only have to order after seeing the proofs.

There are several elements that go into making a great sporting image – emotion, action and a sense of being there all make for spectacular images, but there’s some technical aspects that should be considered as well.

Firstly, if we’re covering action we always make sure that the image is sharp;ly ifocus. And when we say sharp, we mean pin sharp – because anything less gets discarded.

Composition and cropping of an image is vital to drawing the eye into the shot. Cropping out the ball in field sports or not having the ball racquet or bat in the shot is generally a no, no. Also cropping out limbs, feet and hands is avoided but in some cases can’t be helped. If a crop doesn’t look right, we simply won’t use it.

The correct lighting can make or break a shot so we’re really careful about how we position ourselves when shooting images. The old trick of having the sun behind you doesn’t always apply in sports photography as bodies in play can change direction rapidly and dark shadows across people’s faces don’t make great pictures.

Exposure is equally important as to how a shot is lit. Overexposing an image will create a washed out print, while underexposing will create dark prints that don’t look great. Keeping a regular eye on metering while shooting sports is essential for creating great sporting images.

Backgrounds of images are just as important as the foreground of an image so we’re always taking into account what is behind the action. In amateur sports, it’s sometimes hard to control the backgrounds of shots as cars, other people, signs and unsightly fences, etc. all come into play.

Fast lenses and professional camera bodies are a must when shooting sports. A fast lens with a large aperture allows you to shoot in low light conditions and a professional camera body gives you the shutter speeds and image quality that you need to be able to work with high-resolution files.

We only use top of the line Nikon camera bodies using professional Nikon lenses to accommodate for most lighting situations.

Costing can also be expensive, requiring me to photograph at least a full match with no guarantee of success. Several photographs need to be taken to ensure a suitable image results.

The best solution is often to try to photograph all team players during a match and offer the successful shots to all players. There is no obligation to buy. Photos of those players missed can then be staged, if required. Although this is not perfect, it is the most effective way of getting the result you are seeking.
