Photographic Society: May 2022 Report
Steve Williams gave us a whistle stop tour of photographing sport. Giving us ideas for panning as well as all the best shutter speeds for all the different sports; he highlighted the problems of floodlighting too. Steve tends to photograph without permits so attends sports events that might be amateur meetings so that he can get up close. Official experiences often need a more formal arrangement to access the action. Steve showed us so many sports from wrestling, and yes, it is staged, speedway, weightlifting, superbikes at Silverstone to polo and rugby. An outstanding set of images was of jet ski racing and tricks. The shots of the Moto GP at Silverstone really evoked the extremes of the sport and bravery of the riders.
