My photography is focused on landscapes, travel and architecture. Last night, I was able to learn a little bit about sports photography at my son’s soccer game. With a 70-300 Nikon lens attached to my camera, I decided to work on some new techniques. Sports photography is very fast-paced. I had the camera fire in burst mode, shutter priority at 1/640th to freeze action, and boosting the ISO to somewhere between 250 and 320 given the late evening light. And I shot JPEGs, not RAW.
Much tougher way to take pictures. No one stands still while you frame the shoot. Here are a few of the shots from last night. My son is in the third picture down on the right trying to gain control of the ball.
