My Camera Settings for Shooting Football

Hi Gang: I get asked this question enough that I thought I’d do a quick blog post on it. Here goes: Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority F-stop: f/2.8 Note: I shoot wide open (using the lowest numbered f/stop) on whichever lens I’m using at the time, and I don’t change my f/stop the entire day. Shutter Speed: 1/1000 of a second or faster Note: For late afternoon or night games, I turn on Auto ISO and I set my MINIMUM shutter speed to 1/1000 of a second, so no matter what, I’ll also have at least 1/1000 of a second to freeze the action. ISO: Bright...

Shooting with the Dolphins

I had such a fantastic time shooting with the Miami Dolphins photo crew for the Dolphins big win against the Jets (shoutout to Surf, Jon, Brandon, and Jeff – these guys are doing some really progressive stuff photography wise and social media wise). I was psyched to see one of my images on the Dolphin’s Social Media during the game. That’s one of my shots above, taken with a remote camera rig (see below), so I thought I’d break that down here on the blog. Above: Here’s the remote camera rig (I took this shot at the game). This is actually a surprisingly...

It’s Guest Blog Wednesday with Robby Klein

Group Shots: A-List Country Artists for People Magazine The Job I was recently asked to shoot a group portrait for People Magazine showcasing the performers, presenters and executives of the ACM Honors broadcast at Ryman Auditorium. When I got the list of talent we’d be photographing I got quite excited; several artists I had worked with in the past, and it would be great seeing them again! But overall, just an A-List group of country music talent together in one room would be a thrill for any Nashvillian! We would have 2.5hrs to pre-light and 30minutes to shoot. We had 3 phases of...

Boosting Specific Colors

CREDIT: MATT KLOSKOWSKI Often, you’ll have a photo where one of the colors just doesn’t stand out like it did when you took the photo. One of the benefits of a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer is that you can target specific colors with it, and not the whole photo. Plus, the ability to hide the changes with the layer mask on the adjustment layer can really help create some strong images. STEP 1: Open a photo where some of the colors just don’t have the same punch that the others do. In this example, the yellows and blues look like...

Will High Resolution Video Ever Replace Still Photography?

In case you haven’t noticed, we exist in a world of technological development that’s increasing at exponential rates. Even though prototype digital cameras existed back in the 1970’s, they weren’t a common consumer product until the late 90’s. Since then, imaging technology has reached levels nearly beyond belief. Some cell phone cameras boast resolutions, which at one time, only existed in sci-fi books. We’ve seen more than just increases in resolution; we’ve enjoyed faster and more accurate autofocus, increased light sensitivity, decreased aliasing and noise, and more accurate color rendering. At the same time, as video cameras shifted to...
