Many articles have already been written about shooting various genres by photographers and https://www.artlook.us/service/wedding-photo-booths-nyc/ – about shooting weddings, portraits, concerts. But there are more rare genres, but no less colorful and emotional. And today I would like to tell you about one subspecies of reportage shooting. It will not just be about capturing sporting events or extreme sports, but a very narrow direction in the genre of sports photography – about shooting technical sports. When I was looking for information about this 8 years ago, I could not find almost anything, and all sports photography revolved around football or hockey.
This type of photography appeared a very long time ago, as long as competitions involving mechanical devices. The main feature is the interaction of an athlete and technical devices of varying degrees of complexity. These are cars, motorcycles, airplanes, paragliders, water skis and much more. Technical sports involve holding competitions where athletes demonstrate the skills to control technical devices, their physical form, the ability to think strategically and tactically, and other skills.
Being a photographer of this genre is very exciting, but at the same time dangerous and requires good physical preparation.
