Sports Photography

Sports Photography is Brian's thing and he shared much of his knowledge and experience with the club in a presentation covering some of the main challenges of sports photography. Brian has a passion for motor sports and he explained the importance of finding the best position to capture the action and how he selects aperture and shutter speed so that the main subject is sharp and yet there is some blurring to suggest motion.

Being exposed to this kind of learning is one of the key benefits of club membership.
