April 14 - This exciting sports & action photo expedition features the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, Lehigh Valley's own hockey team!
Sports photography of any kind is full of challenges. The hands-on expedition will give you a solid approach to getting the shot and telling an action-packed story with your pictures.
First, our classroom session will provide you with tools and techniques to help you be more successful when shooting these fast-paced events.
You’ll learn about:
- Freezing the action
- Anticipating movement
- Getting better focus
- Keying on specific players
Then on Saturday evening we’ll meet at the PPL Center to shoot a Phantoms game, full of fast action and exciting photo opportunities. With exclusive access you’ll get to shoot like a professional sports photographer, right up close to the action. Our instructors will be there to help you put your new skills into practice, so you can grab great action shots you’ll be proud of.
