Taking photos of a sport that you love is enjoyment #2. Besides the sport itself, what better way to find something you love, or the #2 passion, is taking pictures of this sport. (Actually, the number #1 enjoyment has to be to DO THE SPORT, RIGHT?)

There are so many different sports to love, but, in this case, we want you to take photos of something you participate in, or truly love to watch. That’s two different ways to take these photos: 1- pictures of you playing your favorite sport, or photos of your favorite sport with your family and friends, or even at your favorite place…. like the photo above. And 2- if you love, say, Football, Soccer, or baseball, you could go and take pictures of those games in process. And because you have your cell phone with you, this should be easy.

If you are a biker, you may need some help getting pictures of yourself, but, if you just focus on getting a picture OF Bikers…. then you could hang up your photo on the wall or display it where you could get excited about it again…. something to live for.

If you love to sit in your chair and watch football all day on Sunday, then having a few good football pictures like this is something you would love to have on your wall. You could have more fun with this, if you went down to the local high school game and took your cell phone that has the telephoto lens in it, then it will be easy to get some good photos.

Things you will need to get good sports photos:

  • Your cell phone that has a telephoto lens (if your sport needs it)
  • Willing to take a lot of photos, because of movement.
  • Patience and lots of practice
  • Learn how to tell a story with your photography.

Trying different angles during your photo shoot will get you some creative photos like this one above. Or, if you are in a huge stadium, it’s always fun to get your favorite team from a distance.
