Field Trip: Indoor Sports Photography for Beginners – SPRINGFIELD


Meet at the Nelson Center’s main entrance (1601 N. 5th St., Springfield, IL).


Product Description

If you struggle to capture great images at indoor/evening sporting events…

Join us for a fun night of shooting at a Springfield Jr. Blues Hockey game on Thursday, February 22nd. At the game we will teach you how to prevent blurred images of the athletes. We will discuss focusing options, white balance, and adjusting your exposure settings (ISO, shutter speed, & aperture). This is a great opportunity to learn new skills while actually shooting and get instant feedback from the instructors.

2 instructors, Breck Markley & John Muchow, will be leading this class. We will meet outside the Nelson center entrance beginning at 6:30PM. Attendees will need to be present no later than 6:45PM or they will be responsible for their own entry admission.

Bring your camera, telephoto lens, and an extra battery! In addition, please dress warm, and be advised that we will be shooting near the glass and water puddles are common in that area.  You will be standing for most of the class so wear comfortable shoes.

What you will learn:
• How to choose correct shutter speeds to freeze action
