Shooting High School Football Like a Pro
with Dave Black
Join Dave Black and Scott Kelby on the field of a high school football game and learn how to shoot high school football like a pro. Building on their <a href="/course/dblack_hsfootball/">previous high school football class</a>, Dave shares his tips on choosing the right gear, the camera settings you’ll want to use, and his process for deciding his field positioning for shooting the game. You’ve got to be patient, and you’ve got to be ready to photograph everything from the pre-game huddle to the gameplay to the interactions on the sidelines. Dave and Scott have a great rapport, and throughout the game, Scott asks Dave questions to delve deeper and even shares his own tips from shooting professional football. You’ve got a front row seat to watching Dave in action and learn how he approaches covering an entire game. BUY COURSE
