About The Course
Join Journey Photo Academy photographing a fast-paced competitive soccer game. These events are full of amazing photographic opportunities that provide a sense of excitement, intensity, and emotion. These elements combine to create the potential for an incredible learning opportunity as well as to create truly memorable images. This excursion will begin with an overview of essential skills, then we will move to the soccer fields and where we will show you how to capture astonishing images.
This excursion will provide students with expert guidance on how to capture fast moving subjects. We will address fundamental skills such as exposure and composition, but will emphasize three key areas: depth of field, motion blur, and keeping your subject in focus.
The topics emphasized on this excursion include:
How to set your camera’s shutter speed to completely freeze motion
How to correctly introduce a slight amount of motion blur by combining appropriate shutter speed and panning your camera to convey a sense of action.
How to use a shallow depth of field to emphasize the athlete and reduce distracting elements
How to accurately focus on fast moving, dynamic subjects while using a shallow depth of field
Learning to anticipate and capture interesting moments
This course will teach skills that will be applied to a wide variety of shooting situations. Mastery of these skills will ensure a student no longer captures blurry or out of focus images.
Recommended equipment: DSLR or mirrorless camera, a zoom lens preferably 200mm lens or longer, lens hood, extra batteries, extra memory cards, camera manual.
This class is limited to 5 people to ensure our students receive individual attention
