In this interactive workshop led by Getty Images staff photographer Elsa Garrison, participants will venture out into the world with experienced sports and action photographers to learn how to capture classic moments, and get great shots of constantly moving subjects.
Improve your sports photography by learning techniques used by top sports photographers to capture peak action and images with emotion. Learn technical aspects such as lens choice, using ambient light, backgrounds, and shutter/f-stop combos.
This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet for an intro and slideshow session in the Photoville Workshop Area, before heading out for a live, guided shooting session in-and-around Photoville. The workshop also includes an optional wrap-up session and casual group critique, where students can share their work and ideas, and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.
