Tips for Taking Great Sports Photos


If you are considering taking up sports photography in your Brisbane area, you will need a few tips on how you can get some great shots, especially if you have never done this before. No matter what sport it is, it can be difficult to capture just the right moment if you are not sure just how to do it or what equipment and setting are best.

To begin with to get so great sports photography shots of whatever Brisbane sport you are following is going to take a digital SLR camera or a camera that is going to let you set your own shutter speed. If you don't have either one of these kinds of cameras, the chances of getting a good sports photo is going to be pretty slim.

Some helpful tips for taking some great sports photography in Brisbane are listed below:

  1. Make sure to have a lens or a zoom range of no less than 200mm. This will let you get closer to the action without being able to actually zoom in and it won't isolate any of your subjects.
  2. Don't use full automatic mode on your camera. This happens to be a really common mistake often made. Often someone who is not experienced at this type of photography will see the camera in full automatic mode or a mode that says “sports” or “action”. This alright every once and a while but you really need to be using a semi-manual mode.
  3. Try using a fast shutter speed. The shutter speed needs to be fast enough to capture all the quick moving bodies of athletes and the shutter speed should be at least set at 1/500th of a second to be able to do this and freeze movement.
  4. Aperture Priority Mode is important. If you are using a digital SLR camera you you will want to choose the Aperture Priority mode on this kind of camera. This determines how much light will be taken into the sensor of the camera.
  5. Pay attention to the ISO number. If it is a bright sunny day you will want to set it low such as at 400 but if it is a dark and overcast day for example you will want to increase the ISO number anywhere from 800 to 1200 depending upon just how dark it is outside.
  6. Shutter Priority Mode can be used. If your camera doesn't have an Aperture Priority mode available then you can set it to a Shutter Priority Mode. This will tell the camera what speed you want the shutter to be working at.
  7. Use a fast auto focus and burst mode. If you want the camera to keep up with extremely fast movements then it should be set so it will continually focus on the subject or subjects and not for it to lock on to just one spot. So it is important that both the auto focus and burst mode are turned on when taking sports photography.
  8. Position yourself correctly and make sure you know the sport. It is really important that you know how to position yourself when taking this photographs. Make sure to try to have the sun at your back at all times. It will also help immensely if you actually know a lot about the sport when taking these photos so you know how the game moves around.
  9. Take tons of photos. No matter what sport it is or how good you know the sport it is very important that you take a lot of photos one right after another. This will ensure that you are going to get some very good shots out of the batch. Don't be selective, you can do that later when you go through the photos. It is not unheard of to have 2000 pictures being taken by a sports photographer during one single sporting event.
  10. Shoot at a lower angle. Often it is a good idea to shoot from the knees or to use a mono pod. This will give a lower perspective of the game and it often gives excellent depth.

I and my guys came checking out the great tips located on your web blog then at once came up with a terrible suspicion I never expressed respect to the web site owner for those strategies. Those people were as a consequence warmed to read them and have now certainly been making the most of them. Thank you for genuinely well considerate and then for pick out this form of perfect resources most people are really desperate to discover.
