In this movie, Sean Duggan explains about how lighting impacts what ISO and shutter speed you'll need for a sport action photo shoot.
- Depending on the type of sports or action event…that you're photographing, the lighting is likely…gonna be determined by the location where…that event is taking place, and you're probably…not gonna have a lot of control over it,…especially if it is an exterior location.…If you're shooting an interior event,…such as dance photography, you might be able…to get by using the theatrical stage lights,…flashes, studio strobes, or maybe even…a stroboscopic light.…Just keep in mind that if you are using flashes,…that most cameras have an upper level,…in terms of the shutter speed, that the flash…will synchronize with, and typically…that's around 1/250 of a second,…some cameras may vary on that,…but that's just something to keep in mind.…
Now, when you're shooting outdoors,…the time of day and the weather is all gonna impact…what your lighting is gonna be,…and also what your camera position is,…in relationship to the subject.…Now in some situation, you may be able to control…your camera position or what the subject position is,…
By combining your camera's burst mode with Photoshop, you can create a composite that shows an athlete in action. In this course, photographer and educator Seán Duggan shows how. After mapping out a plan for lighting, composition, and more, he photographs the subjects. Then, the action turns to Photoshop, where he assembles the composite using layer masks and some careful retouching.

- Choosing a camera, exposure, and lighting
