Today's DSLR’s and lenses make excellent action photography a realistic proposition, whether you're taking pictures of your kids in the back yard or an organized sporting event. But there's a lot more to great action photography than simply pressing the button and hoping for the best!

Great sports and action pictures usually don’t happen by accident. During this seminar, which is geared for the enthusiast, we'll highlight what lenses work best in different situations and why, ideas you can put into practice the next time you’re shooting, how to maximize your camera settings and how to position yourself to get the best possible shots – including creative techniques for artistic results. We'll also have Canon EOS cameras and lenses on-hand for you to sample, as well as answers to your questions about getting great images of subjects in motion.
