NOVEMBER 18, 2010 – Sports Action: (Print)

Digital Salon: “Sports Action” — Find a sporting event and capture the action. Sounds easier than it really is. You really need bright light, fast shutter and good timing to get that great sports action shot. There are a few techniques to try such as panning or intentional blur, but also try rapid burst and you might be lucky enough to the height of action. Remember there are more sports than football, baseball, and basketball. More info:

Judge: Dick Kain

“I have taken pictures for over 60 years, and for a time, printed and developed all my black and white pictures. I am largely self-taught, though I have taken several workshops with nationally-known photographers. I am a member of the Twin Cities Digital Imaging Group, and the Minneapolis Photographic Society. I currently judge local and international photographic competitions. I was a beta tester for PhotoShop CS5.

I feel extraordinarily fortunate to have been able to take photographs on every continent at such places as: the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, Antarctica, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Egypt, Nepal, Norway, Iceland, Canada, Alaska, the American Southwest, Peru, Easter Island, Chile, China, Japan and the Galapagos Islands. I have 13 shows based on my trips that I share with people through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and through shows at senior centers.”
