I just rolled over 20,000 exposures on my newest camera. The Nikon D7000 is doing a great job and is as much camera as I need for being a hobbyist.
You may have read my comments in the past on what Sports Editors look for in a photograph, but with their criteria, they will automatically reject great action shots and, what I call a, “sports action portrait”. These images can convey every emotion in a sport to a true Sports Fan as any other photograph, especially if you have played that particular sport, or if you follow it on a regular basis. The photo below is a prime example.
The photo below is Spring Hill College Lady Badger Catcher, #9 Jade Bourgeois. The thing I like the most about this photo is the intensity it portrays.
Look for more “Sports Action” style portraits over the next few weeks.
