Joseph P. Sinnott Senior staff photographer, WNET / New York Public Media

Shooting a variety of sporting events on location is the focus of this course. We will meet at various venues to practice techniques and hone skills for photographing the incredibly unpredictable moments born of fast action and competitive interaction among subjects. Hockey, baseball, soccer, fencing, basketball, tennis, swimming and gymnastics are examples of some of the assignments we'll tackle. Advanced techniques for handling the camera, such as panning and zone focusing will be demonstrated. Learning to see the moment before it happens and capture that fleeting instant-when action and drama are at their peak-is the goal of this course. Students may work digitally or with film.
NOTE: Printing facilities are not available.
