Tip #5 – Tips On How To Photograph Sports

TIP #5 – Note Time Of Day

Soccer games usually run in the morning so if you’re aiming to sell prints  after the game of the individual players be sure to spread out the range of  players shot. There are certain players who like to step back more than others  but it’s your responsibility as the photographer to record everyone and to  maximise your profits.

Take note of where the sun is and make sure the sun is to your back when  shooting. This will ensure you have your shutter speed on it’s maximum without  having to worry about exposing for the faces of the players if you were shooting  into the sun. I am willing to sacrifice a little squinting and panda eyes from  the players to ensure I get the right exposure. After all if you don’t nail that  exposure no one is going to care about panda eyes because there won’t be a  shot.

Concentrate on shooting one team for the first half as they will be in the  right position with the sun illuminating their fronts/faces. Then when half time  is over aim to shoot all the players on the other team as they would have  switched sides on the field.
