Make It Quick

Most sports are fast and exciting—it's the quick pace and flurry of activity that attract participants and fans alike. Even sports with periods of relative calm like baseball can suddenly explode in a flurry of activity. The lightning-fast action makes them enjoyable to watch and photograph.

Cameras have the unique ability to freeze action in place, slicing a moment in time into a period as short as 1/8000 of a second. Think of how quick a second is, and now try to imagine something 8000 times faster. The precise, laserlike, time-stopping capabilities of a camera allow us to appreciate the grace and power of an athletic maneuver by freezing it in time (Figure 10.11).
