editor's note

In this issue, you’ll find informative articles on shooting sports photos, including insights from pro photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. on how he photographs athletes during the Olympic Games. You’ll also learn sport-shooting tips from veteran shooters like William Sawalich, Daniel Brockett and Tom Bol. But we have a second theme in this issue, street and urban photography, and you’ll find two instructive articles on the topic by Mark Edward Harris and Brian Matiash. My love of this latter photography genre started early. In high school, I’d happily abandon memorizing the quadratic equation to sneak into my father’s study to flip through his monographs of Lee Friedlander and Henri Cartier-Bresson, among others. You can see an example of my street photography on this page. In many ways, there’s still much to learn from those…

gearing up for the olympics

Like the athletes they capture, photographers have been gearing up for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Both have to be at the peak of their games to produce the desired outcomes. Paul Kitagaki Jr. knows this as much as any other photographer working today. Tokyo will be his 10th Olympiad, and it’s a particularly special one for the Japanese-American Pulitzer Prize-winning lensman. While Kitagaki is a staffer for the Sacramento Bee, he’ll be using his vacation time to cover the epic events of the XXXII Summer Olympics for ZUMA Press. However, whether you're shooting for the Olympics or capturing the excitement of a little league baseball game, the basic idea is the same: Get yourself into a position to capture the decisive moment from the most illustrative angle. DIGITAL PHOTO: How do you…

telephoto strategies for sports photography

Pay close attention to the sidelines of your favorite sporting event, and you’ll see the photographers share one thing in common: long lenses. Whether it’s world-class tennis or World Cup soccer, high school football or little league baseball, the professional photographers who cover these events know that when it comes to sports, telephoto reach is everything. When you’re working for Sports Illustrated, shelling out $12,000 for a fast 600mm prime may be de rigueur, but many of us need to be a bit more budget-conscious. So can you still photograph your favorite sports without taking out a second mortgage for a lens? With some outside-the-box thinking and capable-yet-affordable telephoto zooms, you can. Here are five techniques for maximizing your telephoto reach on a budget, followed by a handful of lenses that…

NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 180-400MM F/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR This one violates the “affordability” clause, but it’s such a notable lens, it deserves mention. It’s one of Nikon’s newest long zooms for pro sports photography, the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, and it’s the first of its kind in the Nikon arsenal. Built to withstand the dust and moisture that come with professional sports photography, this zoom features a constant ƒ/4 maximum aperture for top image quality and speed across the zoom range. That range is designed to help photographers switch between shorter telephoto and super-telephoto compositions at a moment’s notice. Better still, because it has a built-in 1.4x teleconverter, the lens performs like a 250-560mm at the push of a button. Designed to be used with both…

shooting sports video

Sports photographers have a unique set of skills. However, not all of those skills will necessarily carry over when you are shooting video. But before I get into the details, here are some general thoughts to keep in mind when capturing video for sports: • Keep the big picture of your overall story constantly at the forefront of your shooting.• Ask yourself: “Am I getting enough of the right coverage to edit together a complete story?”• Successful sports videos are made up of all of the coverage that's needed to tell the story visually. Ask yourself: “Who's the story about? How will the story occur or how might it occur?”• Are there additional elements, aside from your subject, engaged in that particular event, that would help make your story even more compelling…
