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

This evening's presentation gives you insights on what to look for when shooting action, how to maximize your camera settings, and how to position yourself to get the best possible shots including creative techniques for artistic results from action photography.

Great sports and action pictures usually don’t happen by accident. During this seminar, geared for the enthusiast, we'll highlight what lenses work best in different situations and why, and give you a wealth of ideas that you can put into practice the next time you’re shooting. 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.

Even if you're not sure if action photography is for you, the suggestions and ideas we'll show tonight will inspire you to use your DSLR to get better pictures in challenging environments.
