Photography? Cricket action shots?
Serious photography – laugh in its face – Ha!
….And then run away quickly.
Here is a selection of my photographs and image work. More a tour of portraiture, emotion, form, lighting, composition, movement, and very little out and out action.
England on tour 2009: Caribbean Colour.
Photoshop work: Films Warped by Cricket.
Bowlers: Bowlers and Bowling Actions.
Cricketers: From other International and County Teams
I have a camera – who hasn’t these days. The one I have is hopelessly inadequate for the task of hot sports action. The English light even in summer is really rather rubbish. The middle of most cricket fields is very far away – cricket fields are big things, even the small ones!
I have an old Nikon D70 and a Tamron 55-200mm 1:4-5.6 zoom lens. This is not the ideal combo for low light situations.
Challenges plenty. Mistakes loads! Manual that is always on the wrong setting and lots of time spent trying to correct it with photoshop. And just to keep it interesting I hand hold and do not use the sports multi frame shutter.
But If you have a Nikon D3s and a 300 f/2.8 telephoto lens going spare we could test whether I could develop a better attention span than that of a stoat and a more professional attitude to sports action!
