Shooting sports is messy. We all struggle with the same issues and ask the same questions. Where are the best shooting positions? What lens should I be using? How do I know which photos are any good? Join legendary sports photographer Peter Read Miller and Scott Kelby to find the answers to all these questions and more in What Makes A Great Sports Photo on! Peter and Scott go through the particulars of shooting many different types of sports, ranging from football to basketball and swimming to volleyball, as they discuss and dissect what makes a great sports photo in each specific environment.

  1. Full conference pass to PSW would be great! (Please, please, oh Please!) PSW (and Kelby Training, of course) are the best ways to keep the “skills up” and to learn about upcoming technology!

  2. Photoshop World looks like an awesome experience. How great it would be to be able to have so many resources in one place at one time. I would love the chance to get to go!

  3. Just starting watching the sport’s photo class and I’m hooked already. Peter Read Miller is an incredible sport’s photographer and that Scott Kelby guy ain’t too bad either :)

  4. Hey Scott thanks for giving us the weekly chance to win some awesome stuff. Please put my name in the hat for your Indianapolis Shoot Like a Pro stop. I would love to come see you and winning a tic for that location will probably my only chance. Cheers!

  5. A shot at attend PSW in Las Vegas would be great. Between registration, lodging, travel, etc., it is a huge burden to be able to attend—despite the ability to write it off on taxes.

    Seeing Scott in San Jose would also be great. I believe this would be the closest a NAPP event has been to my area. They’re usually in Sacramento or San Francisco.

  6. Hi guys,
    Y’all Rock. I don’t want to win anything so if my name is picked, put it back and pick another. Y’all do enough.
    See ya in about a month!!! WOOHOO!!!!

  7. I have attended Kelby Training’s seminars in Denver with Dave Black on Light Painting; Ben Wilmore on Composites and looking forward to seeing Joe McNally this Fall in Denver at his Light It seminar. I think I heard Scott say – buy three get one free :)

  8. What Makes A Great Sports Photo with Peter Read Miller –

    I would love to watch this!! I am going to start shooting sports next year, and I really feel this class could help me hit the ground running!!

  9. Already signed up for my first ever PSW and can’t wait. Planning to attend a couple of the Sports Photography related classes there to learn more from the best!

  10. Lightroom has allowed me to do so much for my photography, can only imagine what exposure to photoshop would do. Thanks for all that you do for the community scott!

  11. Thank you so very much Scott for the Free Photoshop World Ticket, I feel so lucky today….And very excited about attending. See you in Vegas baby…..

  12. I watched the “…Great Sports Photo” class, with Peter Miller this evening. He’s got some great techniques for capturing sports shots, like a pro. Tips like catching the peak action of the play and his camera on the ground technique are awesome skills that I hope to incorporate into my genre. With a little practice, of coarse… Who knows, this might be a good use for an F-plate too.

    Send a shout out to Peter for me, to say thanks.

  13. Would love a PSW pass but I’ll be away on a workshop but I’d happily read a copy of Brians book! In fact, I’ll even pass it on once I’ve read it!

  14. Brian Smith was great on The Grid and then I saw him speak at MOPA in San Diego the following day. Really great insights. I’d love a signed copy of his book :-)
