From rodeo, to baseball, to lacrosse, to soccer, sports photography is an incredibly varied genre with something in it for almost everybody. If you are looking to improve your sports images, you should definitely watch this video in which a seasoned sports photographer critiques a vast range of images and offers a ton of helpful tips and advice.
Coming to you from On Sports Photography with Peter Read Miller, this excellent video features him showing a wide range of user-submitted sports images and discussing their highlights and what he would improve. Miller has been a sports photographer for over 40 years and boasts over 100 Sports Illustrated covers to his name along with many other notable achievements, so his opinion is definitely worth listening to. I had the opportunity to get into photographing professional baseball a few years ago, and I have been photographing equestrian competitions for years, and I always enjoy both pursuits, as I always seem to experience something new each time, and the challenges keep me on my feet. Even if you are not looking to do this professionally, you can improve family memories with a bit of study and practice. Check out the video above for lots of helpful tips from Miller.
Rarely do I shoot sports. But a few times I have I so enjoyed the action. This video was so helpful to garner some ideas when I do. Not being a sports “shooter” and I suck when I have tried, but was a lot of fun giving it a go. Way to do your sports shooters. And a wonderful way for parents to capture their son or daughters active in sports for lasting memories.
