Currently I am progressing towards sports photography. I have attended Ice Hockey, Wrestling, Skiing, Indoor Track and Field, and Swimming and Diving. I have been working with other photographers to train on how to capture the best action, where to be when photographing, certain settings on my camera and more. During the next 2 months, I will be training on these sports while it is my off season for my current photography job.
These photos below are some practice photos I did, not related to my photo job. I focused on capturing that moment when a player stopped a hockey puck from scoring and players trying to achieve the puck from the opposing team.
I will also be attending a few photography workshops to improve my photography and to update my portfolio during these cold winter months ahead.
Yesterday I attended a Winter Landscape workshop in Westport, MA. This was a great experience to head back to Gooseberry Island and photograph the landscape in a new way.
Since college, I have achieved a new professional camera and lens. I have been reading new content on photography during my spare time. Recently, something clicked while reading some articles and working at a few winter sports for my seasonal job. This workshop I focused on exploring different perspectives. I didn't just "take a photo" I tried a different angle, depth of field and make "your" eye explore the photograph. I explored this locations many times while attending UMass Dartmouth, but this time I tried expressing the island in other ways.
2020 will be the year that I experiment with my new equipment and new ideas on photography! How can I photograph a place I visited before? What do I want my audience to view when I show them a photograph?
