Freeze Action -
That really shouldn't be too hard right? I mean I photograph a ton of sports I should be able to come up with something "in this week" . So I first thought - well I will focus on the basketball and catch it in motion. Problem.... every time the ball came straight at me, I flinched! Yep!!
You try watching a game through a 200mm lens - you will flinch too!
Then I decided I will try to catch a pivotal point in the game - and maybe show the intent of stopping the ball - this is what I came up with:
I probably should have tried to get more feet in the shot - to show how high 40 is jumping,
But - well I didn't ;-(
the next challenge was Tack Sharp -
and I'll tell you what - you practice and learn and hope to get that Bokah effect - trying to do the opposite - challenges your brain.
i went hiking one day and took a LOT of photos of nature - I tried all the Tack sharp techniques, but still - due to a little teensy tiny breeze -the trees were just a bit blurred.. ( don't worry - I will still show them to you later)
Then I decided to set something up inside to take care of the wind problem - and this is what I did.
The upper left hand corner still bothers me, so I will still practice this technique
That is my photo story for this week ;-)
