This eBook takes a simple, non technical approach to photographing action. It’s especially written for users of Canon EOS cameras and looks at the topics that you need to understand to take some great action pictures of almost anything that moves.

The book features a number of practical assignments that follow up on the topics taught in each chapter and is designed to reinforce the things that you have learnt.

The techniques are simply explained and all the “jargon” so often seen in photography, is demystified.

Nina has over 20 years experience in teaching photographers at all levels of experience, from novice up to seasoned professionals and she knows where the problems can occur and how to utilise some of the automation on the camera to make the shots easier to take.
