Becoming Psychic This is the third and final part of my Sports Photography Tutorial.  The first two parts covered the main equipment: the camera and the lens.  Now, we're going to take a look at the most important piece of the equation: You.  The photographer.

Sports Photography – An Introduction: The Camera Body

Sports Photography: The Camera Last time we focused on what is probably the most important piece of equipment in sports photography: the lens.  Now we’re going to take a look at the second-most important thing: the camera body itself.  While the best camera in the world can only record what the lens shows it, [...]

Sports Photography – An Introduction: The Lens

2017-04-16T00:54:13+00:00
