After looking at some photos of the Masters in photo class earlier this week, it made me want to look up some photos on my own. I came across some pictures I really liked. I only wish I was this good at photography! Maybe someday.. Practice makes perfect.
This picture (below) was my favorite. It’s a picture of Bubba Watson who was this years winner of the Masters. I love his white outfit in contrast with the dark background. I also think the lighting is great. There is sunlight hitting his right side which make for a great photo.

The picture below was another picture I really liked. I think this was a great action shot and the photographer really focused on Bubba’s face and follow through swing. My photo teacher is always telling us to get closer! This is a great example of getting close. You can tell it was taken with a long lense because the background is very blurry.

My other favorite picture was when Bubba reacts to winning the Masters. I love how this picture captured the audience’s response when Bubba made the last winning stroke. Bubba, in a sense, melts in this picture when he does win in sudden death.

I got all these pictures from the website called Zimbio: Bubba Watson Masters Photos 2012
This past Spring Break I drove home to Pa. I also drove up to Connecticut to visit my boyfriend and watch one of his hockey games he had that weekend. Whenever I go to his games I always bring my camera and try to practice taking pictures of a fast moving hockey game. Ever since I got my long lens I’ve been using that so I can really get into the action of the game! I actually found an article that talked a little about hockey and lighting and the technique the photographer used compared to what technique I used. Click here for the web article. The photography in this article used flash which I didn’t. He also gets on ice level but I was up in the stands because I couldn’t get into the penalty box. I also used a fast shutter speed and after going through all the pictures I did take from the game I realized I could have been on a higher shutter speed. The picture pasted below is one of the many pictures I took at his game. The game was at the Freitas Ice Arena on the University of Connecticut campus against Canisius College.
