Sports Photography and Women's Athletics at George Washington University

The shorthand for great sports pictures is “get the face and ball in focus”.  When I get a chance I ask photographers how they like to shoot sports, and they usually mention two methods: FISHING (focus on one spot and wait for the action to come to you) and BUTTERFLY CATCHING (roam over the playing field constantly changing zoom, focus, and background).
