Rick E. Dawson, Cr.Photog., CPP
This workshop will go over the best way that instrcutor, Rick Dawson, found to capture the action of sports events from college to high school, and from baseball to soccer games. You will cover things like: the speed needed to stop the action of most sports, what your maximum frame per second is on your camera, and is the unique way to get that faster shutter.
Does your camera delay loading the files because of a cheap memory card? Rick will discuss why may JPG is better than raw to capture the action. You will also learn why you should set the camera to Shutter-Priority, which allows you to think about the player's action in front of you, and gives you more time to capture the motion. This workshop will help you better understand the sports you are taking photos of and how the players will show the most action.
Items to bring: A computer with lightroom loaded and ready to use. A telephoto lens 70mm-200mm or longer, A wide-angle lens form 10mm-40mm to have a worm eye angle view of the player. SLR or mirrorless Camera and extra batteries and extra memory cards. A hat to help hindered the sun from getting in your face. Pens and notebook to take notes. Tennis shoes or other comfortable footwear to stand for long periods. A tripod if you would like to bring one to the workshop.
