  • 1. Images are quite often taken of players challenging for the ball as this shows determination and strength. These usually make good shots as there is a lot going on and it makes the reader pay attention. The photographs are taken to show the background as well as the players because the location and conditions often make good images, such as a wet, cold evening. The images when taken are used on a variety of Medias, the main ones being newspapers where they are found at the back pages. The images can be posted on social network sites such as twitter or on the newspapers website. Some images taken may be controversial and therefore spoke about on the Radio or television such as gestures made. The photographer has to set a quick shutter speed for the images as having movement in the picture is always a very good sign of professionalism. Such as the image below where the goalkeeper has been captured diving for the ball. A telephoto lens is used to capture the shots from far away and get close ups on players such as the one above. It captures the facial expressions of the players. Keeping the camera still when taking the images or even filming footage is important, this makes sure the shot you want is not hindered by events around you. Having a tripod is a good way of cementing your position and making sure the images are of the quality you set yourself. The image on the left is seen as a good shot because it has been taken from a long camera angle, looking up. Therefore portraying the player as bigger, this will go hand in hand with the close control and agility needed for that movement. This also displays facial features that are good to have, that of the player with the ball, in complete focus and that of admiration from the competing player. These shots are thought about in the images I have taken because I have tried to use all the techniques as well as the professionalism treating them as normal images for a newspaper. I have tried to make sure movement, facial expressions and different angles were used to add variety and keep the viewer of the images keen to keep looking.
