Fake panning effect

I took this photo of a woman running a marathon. I exaggerate the panning effect in photoshop to make it look more interesting. Is it too much?

College Football in Greater New York

As a student at NY, New York was foremost known for his excellent attendance. It was the first round of the playoffs senior year at Vian that would be the pinnacle achievement of Melvin’s life. Down 35-0 late in the fourth quarter with the ball on the opponent’s twenty-one yard line, Melvin would come into the game at wide-receiver.



Hey Everyone! I'm an equine sports photographer(Western and english pleasure, reining, jumping, dressage-I've shot almost every horse sport).
I would love some critique on my action shots please!

Hi, I’m new to this group

I like capturing sports because it’s pure photography. Rude weather conditions, no preparation, no second chance, no ones helps you, it’s just you and your subjects. The pictures go straight out of your camera onto the server of your agency. Pure action and pure emotions, your “models” are real people in a real world. I hate it when it rains or...

Track and Field Hurdles

When I saw this photo on the camera's LCD screen I was so excited. I knew it was the best I was going to get all day. It's one of those photos where I felt like I was only going to ruin it in postproduction — but hopefully I didn't?

Personally I love the lighting, which was a huge system more appropriate for lighting cars in studio....

Weight Lifter and Gym Portraits

Hi - I am often asked to take some portraits in a local weight and strength gym for various promotional uses. I want to step up my game a bit, and would love a critique in order to find new ways to show off this type of training. I prefer to go for a hybrid of portrait and action at the same time. I have a good studio strobe set up, and can...

First time shooting baseball

Hey everyone, I have almost a year under my belt taking photography seriously and shot my first baseball game last week. I played the game through college and spent just as much of life working up to umpiring college baseball, but now it's time to sit on the other side of the fence.

I was only able to stay for the first three innings of...

RAW vs. JPEG and artifacts

I just got my first Nikon (D500) to try to get better photos in low-light (indoor volleyball.) I am aware I also need to work on my technique and post-processing a lot, but I was able to sell my Canon 70D well and found a great deal for the Nikon, and wanted to try something new...

With Canon I was only shooting raw, with 85mm f/1.8...

San Diego Padres

I've had the privilege of being a San Diego Padres season ticket holder for a few seasons. I finally decided to take my camera and get shots of some of the players when I'm able. I'm still learning and growing. All feedback is appreciated. Thank you.

Let's take this sucker to 11!

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I will be the new moderator of the Sports Photography group. My hope is that, over time, we can really build this group up as a place for sharing your latest work and getting constructive feedback. I'll be doing my best to check in on the group daily and offer my own feedback on any images posted...

Got some practice in!

Finally put a shoot together with a few athletes from my old high school! Really happy with the results. Anyone else like using the low angle light in front of the subject? Also got lucky I had the right color blue to gel the mist!
