Equipping, empowering and developing future sport photographers through hands-on training and experience!
In the Inland Empire area of Los Angeles, the last few days have been filled with rain off and on again. Our UYB reps were prepared, come rain or shine, for the sports photography training session already scheduled with Rancho Viejo MS. As we made our way to campus, the sun began to peep out of the clouds. However, by the time we arrived at the soccer field, the sun had retreated and the sky returned to overcast. To begin our training, we provided the correct camera setting for the natural lighting to the students: ISO200, 1/2000 shutter speed and f4. By the second half of the game, the overcast clouds became darker and darker. Therefore, they had to adjust their camera settings by increasing the light sensitivity from ISO200 to ISO400 to ISO800 and then all the way to ISO1600! Thankfully, it did not rain during the game and photography session. The students completed their first sport photography training with enthusiasm and excitement. Our reps were thrilled to view some of the winning photos captured by these eager beginners. The day was capped off with a home game win by the Rancho Viejo soccer team!
