En­rol at Nikon School for fan­tas­tic ac­tion-sports shots

We joined Nikon School UK on their Fenc­ing Pho­tog­ra­phy Ex­pe­ri­ence day in Lon­don to learn how best to shoot a selection of fan­tas­tic fenc­ing pho­tos.

Through­out the day we were shown, along­side a hand­ful of other lucky people, how to shoot con­trolled ac­tion shots, static sports por­traits, and how to uti­lize high shut­ter speeds when us­ing con­tin­u­ous light­ing on lo­ca­tion.

Shoot­ing a sport that’s known for its ex­plo­sive speed, it was nec­es­sary to set up our Nikon cam­era to freeze the move­ment; that meant en­gag­ing con­tin­u­ous drive mode and us­ing back but­ton fo­cus­ing to track the fo­cus on our fencers.

We used con­tin­u­ous light­ing to see ex­actly how the light fell on our sub­jects and ad­justed them im­me­di­ately to get the ab­so­lute best shots from the va­ri­ety of se­quences and pos­tures pulled.
