The word photography comes from two ancient Greek words: photo, for "light," and graph, for "drawing." . "Drawing with light" is a way of describing photography. When a photograph is made, light is used to record a picture of an object or scene on a light-sensitive surface.

Composition is the combining of distinct parts or elements to form a whole.. The Rule of Thirds can also be called the rule of ninths.

10 TIPS FOR STUNNING ACTION PHOTOGRAPHYSlide2
Action Photography Tip #1: Plan ahead!
Carefully plan where you will set up. This is probably the biggest mistake for action photographers. I can't tell you how many parents I see on the sidelines shooting their son's soccer game from the middle of the field. Since the action will mostly occur near the goal, that is a much better place to set up. No matter what action you are going to shoot, you need to predict where you can be to capture the face of the subject.Slide3
Action Photography Tip #2: Pre-focus.
If the subject suddenly springs into the frame, you might consider using
a technique called pre-focusing
Action Photography Tip #3: Shoot in short bursts
rather than one long bursts. This will prevent your buffer from filling up, which could cost you the shot. I usually shoot action in three shot bursts, wait a second, then shoot another burst. To do this, turn your camera to continuous high drive mode.Slide5
Action Photography Tip #4: Give the subject space to move
For fast-moving subjects, the best composition is usually to allow some space on the side of the photo where they are traveling. For example, the photo featured on this page has more space on the left side of the frame, since that is where the person is jumping to. This composition will feel much more comfortable to the viewer so they don't wonder what's in front of the person.Slide6
ction Photography Tip #5: Get a
fast memory card
This can help prevent your camera from slowing down if the memory card write speed is the bottleneck in your system. Not sure which memory card to buy?

Action Photography Tip #6: Don't miss the face
Capturing the expression on the face of the subject will add much more drama to the photo. Did you notice the face of the guy jumping into the icy water?Slide8
Action Photography Tip #7: Shoot JPEG
Action photography is one of the only times that I switch over to JPEG. Since JPEG files are much smaller than RAW files, most DSLRs can capture a few more frames per second on JPEG than RAW.Slide9
Action Photography Tip #8: Get down low
One of the most important–and lesser-known–composition tips is that shooting from down low will make your subject look powerful. Look at any picture of a CEO in Forbes or Business Week and you'll see that they are often shot from a low angle to make the person seem like a towering giant. The same is true in action shots, where photographers generally want to make the subject look dramatic and powerful.Slide10
Action Photography Tip #9: Shoot with two eyes open
I learned this trick from teaching classes in shotgun shooting. Closing one eye lessens your ability to determine depth and
your eye's ability to track movement. It takes some practice, but I always shoot sports and action with two eyes open, and it seems to help me get the shot.Slide11
Action Photography Tip #10: Don't mash the shutter button!
Just because you're shooting action doesn't mean you should
