Golf Photography Tips – PictureCorrect

I am sure that many of our readers play golf, but how many of you consider photographing the sport? This article  from Picture Correct is by Rob Hayashida, a freelance sports photographer based in Chicago, IL specializing in shooting PGA and LPGA events. So if you wish to try your hand at shooting, rather than driving, get a few tips from an expert.

Golf isn’t associated with being a very dynamic sport to photograph, because the action isn’t very fast and there are very strict rules on photographing PGA events. One would be quite surprised at how much opportunity exists to capture raw emotion, beautiful surroundings, and athleticism to the photographer who is willing to seek out the possibilities that exist.
