Yesterday, there was a big GLBT sport tournament in Vienna: The traditional “Vienna Valentine” swimming event took place for its 5th time, and this time a volleyball tournament was attached.
I like photographing these events. Not only because it’s a good chance to see a lot of hot and trained guys in their swimpants. It’s a good opportunity to train sports photography and spontanious people photography.
Swimming is ideal if you want to start photographing sports: You get a repetitive action, you can guess and focus the place the athlete does the next tempo. I did some great action shoots, and I can’t wait to put them online over the next days.
And it’s a good chance to train your eye on people and situations. Some people fool around, some people look very reflexive, sport teams celebrate. To catch these moments makes photography so special for me.
