Facebook Pixel Weekly Challenge - Sports Photography

Weekly Challenge – Sports Photography

Earlier today I shared a collection of sports images. Now as usual it’s time for the challenge. I throw down the gauntlet and urge you to accept it and play along (pun intended).

Sports photography is a tricky subject. Fast moving subjects, quickly changing lighting conditions, and restrictions on where you are allowed to stand. All these things can be overcome and conquered – with practice!

Now is the perfect time to get out and do just that. Try out your high speed shooting mode, or borrow a lens. Find a local sporting event and get out and take some action photography shots. Here are some examples to get you started:
