15 MAGNIFICENT EXAMPLES OF ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHY AND EXTREME SPORTS

One of the greatest advantages of photography is its ability to combine hobbies or hobbies. Because photography is like a good friend who accompanies you wherever you go, whenever you want. If you like the mountain, it accompanies you to the mountain, if you like the sea, the sea that goes, if you like to walk around your city, then go to the bag and walk. Wherever you go, as long as you take good care of it, it goes with you anywhere, anytime, any day of the week, and that only great friends do

And yes, when I say any place, I mean any place. Because luckily, and every day more, the cameras are designed to endure indelible in almost any type of situation. Some years ago it was unthinkable to do according to what things with a camera, it was unthinkable the size that they could get to acquire, or the complements that could be achieved today in order to give free rein to our artistic creativity while practicing sports more and more extreme, in increasingly remote places, always in search of that unique sensation that catches us like a drug; the adrenaline.

Do not you get the idea of what you can get today by joining hobbies? I leave you some wonderful examples below, I hope they inspire you

1. FREEZING THE MOVEMENT

In extreme sports where speed is one of the essential ingredients, we usually need high shooting speeds to freeze the movement. A minimum speed of 1 / 500s is usually recommended, always depending on the speed at which the subject moves.

 2. THE CLOSER THE BETTER

The closer you can get to the scene, the better and more stunning photographs you can get. Remember to do it safely

The closer, the better

3. THE PRECISE MOMENT

In adventure sports, a difference of a few seconds can mean getting a great image or absolutely nothing. Try to anticipate the action and anticipate what will happen next so as not to miss the decisive or key moment of the action.

The precise moment

4. THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPOSITION

Being overwhelmed by dreamlike landscapes and superhero jumps is easy, but try not to lose sight of the composition of your images, lines , vanishing points , perspective, and above all, the center of interest .

Do not forget the importance of a good composition

5. INTEGRATE THE FUND

If this is worth it, and it helps you explain a story, don’t forget to include it in some of your images. Some extreme sports and adventures are developed in unique landscapes, since they are generally difficult to access for ordinary mortals.

Integrate the fund if it is worth it

6. EXPLAIN A STORY

Try to have your images speak, transmit, explain a story to the viewer.

9. SWEEP

10. PUT YOURSELF IN THE RIGHT PLACE

11. FULL COLOR

Take advantage of the color contrast of some scenes like this yellow motorcycle trimmed against an intense blue background.

12. THE FACE OF EMOTION

Do not just portray the sport itself, look for the essence of it that is the one who practices it. His gestures, his face, his face of concern, of concetration or effort, can give you great images.

Look for the emotion on the athletes face

13. CHOOSE THE MATERIAL WELL

Do not forget to choose the material according to each type of photography.

Choose the material you need well

14. BEYOND THE OBVIOUS
