Sport photography as a genre covers a huge area, with lost of tecniques needed to capture a wide range of subjects. A lot of these principles can be applied to most action shots, but getting the best out of each opportunity takes time and patience. We spoke to professional sports photographer Jordan Weeks to get his top ten tips on how to get your best action photos. Jorndan explains that it is as much your ability to control your camera as it is to consider your subject in order to capture stunning shots. For more of Jordan’s images, head to www.jordanweeks.com

Shutter speed

Think about the effect you want. A slow shutter speed will help to create a sense of movement with blur, whereas a fast shutter speed will give a pin- sharp, crisp shot.

Depth of field

Assess whether the background will be a distraction. Use a larhe aperture of f5.6 or less to blur out the background, or to keep ot sharp use a narrow aperture setting of around f22.

Research your subject

Description: Women surfing

It is a good idea to research and understand the sports which you photograph, so that you can predict when the action is about to take place.

Plan your photo shoots

Prepare in advance. Grab a notepad and plan the photos you want to take. Think about angles and check the weather!

Move with the subject

Do not be afraid to follow the action. When photographing surfers, for instance, they zip quickly across the beach, so move with them or else you will miss the shot.

Autofocus us manual focus

Autofocus can be great, but often you will need to set your focus manually on one point, then take the shot when the subject enters this ‘forcus zone’.

Watch the action through the camera

Teaching yourself to keep an eye on the action through your camera and instinctively hitting the shutter at the right time will save precious seconds.

Be patient

Description: Running

Sports photography requires a lot of patience. You will often find that you are hanging around waiting for a long time. Just try to be patient and use the time to learn more about the sport which you are shooting.

Go prepared

Sometimes when photographing sports, it can be an all- day event. Take some food, drink and suitable clothing.

Tripods are optional

You will need a tripod for a big (and heavy) lens, but smaller lenses are no bad thing because they let you get up close and move freely with the action.
