I'm a typical guy. I love capturing sports action as well as in creating sports themed portraits. I can't play as much anymore but I can capture the action to tell a story. What's the background? Is the subject isolated? Can you feel the emotion? I work to frame every image i plan to capture and do not just spray and pray I get a shot.
While it does take professional level lense to work in low lighting, pro camera bodies to maintaining focus tracking with fast moving subjects, it's not just the gear that makes an interesting or compelling image. It's like hunting - waiting for the right moments, being in the right locations, anticipating, and having patience before it happens.
And when you integrate the elements of planned lighting, creating mood and drama, the sports portrait becomes the next level of fun.
