Photographe de sport
In sport, more than in other disciplines, knowing how to seize the decisive moment is essential.
It can be the moment when a runner crosses the finish line or the moment when the tennis player hits the ball, the fall of a rope climber on a dizzying wall, a butterfly swimmer, a BMX champion …
Nothing like being able to capture the decisive moment in a photo. The secret is to anticipate this moment and nothing beats practice to achieve it.
The use of a certain type of material is necessary. Optics are also of great importance. Short focal lengths and wide angles alternating with long focal lengths. These will isolate the subject in the environment in which it evolves and will accentuate the "dramatic" side of the feat.
To photograph subjects in action, it seems obvious to use fast (short) shutter speeds to "freeze" the movement. A photo taken with a shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second will be much sharper than a photo taken with a shutter speed of 1/100 of a second.
However, inserting a blur can give an impression of movement to a static photograph.
Sports photography requires rigor, experience, responsiveness and anticipation. It is these qualities that have enabled me over the years to meet the needs of my clients.
