Fireworks displays are something that I really enjoy attending not only to watch but also to document, to obtain images like the ones below takes a lot of patience, a good eye and obviously the correct camera settings, the third photograph thus far is easily my favourite firework image as you have the perfect balance of colours, a true black in the background and with the blue haze from the smoke it shows the it is an action shot, you can envisage the loud crack from the explosion, this is something that I will continue to document after my time as a student has come to an end, albeit in a hobby kind of way as I do not see any scope for any earning potential from this type.
A few from a recently documented football match that I attended as the club photographer, these images are sharper and therefore more pleasing to the eye, I really like how my images are beginning to turn out, it is true what they say, practice does make perfect. I believe that my photography is improving with every shoot that I attend and I am finally getting to grips with the mastery of the camera.
Below are a few images of one of the most famous football grounds in the world, Anfield, the home of Liverpool FC, this is one of my places of employment on match days where I work as a steward, this job is a stop gap whilst I continue to look for an opening into sports photography, with having my ‘foot in the door’ I am hoping that when an internal vacancy opens up for a media related position, I would stand a better chance of employment if I was already a member of staff in some capacity.
The object you can see towards the lower left of this image is called the spider, it is an camera that is used for the overhead footage during the games
