In Sports Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots , author and sports photographer Bill Frakes shows you how to capture the key elements of sports photographs-motion and emotion, style and scene, place and purpose-whether you're at a baseball tournament, a track meet, or a professional football game.

Starting with the basics of equipment, camera settings, and exposure, Bill covers the fundamental techniques of sports photography-understanding lighting, handling composition and focus, and timing peak action. He explains how to choose a shooting position on the field of play, identify the defining moments away from the action, and learn the etiquette of covering live sporting events. He then breaks down the shooting processes of specific sports, outlining the challenges and demands of each and showing how to isolate individual athletes in action.
