Award-winning action and lifestyle photographer Kevin Steele shows how to capture the intensity of soccer on camera.
(energetic music) Hi, my name is Kevin Steele. I'm a commercial photographer, and this is a course on active lifestyle and athletic portraiture. What we're going to be shooting today is, let's suppose this is an assignment for a magazine, or perhaps commercial advertising, and we're shooting soccer players, really getting the peak moment of action and the emotion out of these players, that iconic image that really shows everything that is passionate about the sport of soccer.
We're gonna be shooting in a few different styles. We'll work with available light and reflectors, and overhead diffusions. And then we'll also bring in some studio strobes, and I'll talk through all of the aspects, pros and cons of each style. But first we need to figure out where we're gonna be shooting, and what we're gonna set up as our location. So let's take a look at our locations now, and see what we've got.
