5 Helpful Sports Photography Tips to Improve Your Images

Sports photography is a challenging genre that requires fast reactions and solid technique, but it can also be a ton of fun and can yield jaw-dropping action images. If you are looking to improve your sports images, check out this great video tutorial that offers five helpful tips to take better shots. 

Coming to you from Jean Fruth with B&H Photo and Video, this awesome video tutorial will show you five great tips for improving your sports photos. By far, one of the most important things any aspiring sports photographer should do is learn the sport inside and out. Sports photos are often made or broken by differences of mere milliseconds, and if you are searching for or trying to follow the action without good knowledge of the game, it can leave you missing shots. When you have a good understanding of how the sport works, you can better anticipate where the action is likely to be and be ready for it. On top of that, you can plan out moments to be a bit more artistic with your photos instead of just documenting the event. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Fruth.
