About This Class

6b07a9a2

This three part series is a beginner level tutorial on how to take great sports and action photographs. It is taught by Don McPeak, a semi-retired pro sports photographer with over 10,000 publication credits.

Part Two is a series of lectures about the basics of adding dimension to your photography: about understanding your plan / goals, motivations, and composition. It begins with some fundamental concepts about your plan (For what you want your pictures to be) and ends with an in depth discussion about the three elements that infuse 'life' into your photos. 

The goal of this second section is to give you tools to use while creating your 'after' mini portfolio.
