Canon’s expert tips on snapping your passions
Stay close to the image and keep the light behind you. Then crop the frame to minimise background distractions.
Still on sport:
Keep your eye on the game at all times. The great moments happen in a matter of seconds.
Water and the beach:
Look for reflections on the surface. Try to keep the camera level and the horizons straight.
Colour can be distracting so try black and white. Have a strong subject within the frame. Level horizons are important here, too.
Look out for textures, tones and patterns. It’s about seeing something people often miss. Shadows can make simple, abstract shots.
