Bill Frakes New Book! Sports Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots

06/03/2013

Bill Frakes, author, sports photographer and one of our mentors, shows you how to capture the key elemens of sports photographs in his new book Sports Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots.

Starting with the basics of equipment, camera settings, and exposure, Bill covers the fundamental techniques of sports photography–understanding lighting, handling composition and focus, and timing peak action. He explains how to choose a shooting position on the field of play, identify the defining moments away from the action, and learn the etiquette of covering live sporting events. He then breaks down the shooting processes of specific sports, outlining the challenges and demands of each and showing how to isolate individual athletes in action.

Beautifully illustrated with large, vibrant photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography to get the sports photo you want every time you pick up the camera.
