Published Pictures

It is always nice to see one’s work in print, especially when they are used by three newspapers all on the same day!

Here are some quick snaps of the pages containing my photos of the Brighton & Hove Albion v Derby County match, published in the Independent, the Mirror and the Sun, via Pro Sports Images.

I was chuffed to find that I had a couple of my photos published in the press.

Here’s a gallery of a few of the photos I took:

Summary:

  • Turn phone sideways to take landscape pictures/video
  • Don’t use camera zoom – move forward instead
  • Tap on screen for auto focus and auto exposure – tap and hold for AF and AE lock
  • Use volume button to take a shot
  • Use HDR when necessary – but not on moving objects
