Shooting subjects in motion can be one of the most technically challenging forms of photography. As with outdoor photography, action photography requires you to carefully plan out your shoot. Beyond that, you’ll need to know your camera and equipment inside and out. Of course, there’s also an element of luck at play, but for many action photographers, that’s part of the thrill.
Action photography is about capturing subjects in motion. It can encompass wildlife and sports photography, though you can apply the techniques involved to any number of subjects. Whatever you plan to shoot, the key to action photography is careful planning and a thorough understanding of your subject.
Essential Equipment for Action Photography
Action photography is one of the most technically demanding forms of photography, which means it’s important to have the right equipment.
Telephoto lenses: Action photographers often use large telephoto lenses. If you plan to shoot team sports like soccer or football, you’ll want to invest in a lens with a long focal length—such as a 70–300mm telephoto lens. Learn more about choosing the right telephoto lens here.
A tripod: If you do go out shooting with a telephoto lens, you’ll want to make sure you have a sturdy tripod or monopod, which will help you get suitably sharp images.
A fast memory card: The faster your memory card’s write speed, the quicker you can get on to your next shot.
