"Digital Sports Photography" helps the photography enthusiast learn the basics of the latest digital sports photography techniques, equipment, and how to get started or take better sports photos. This book will capture the attention of any individual wanting to learn about the latest developments in the professional sports photography world and how they can be applied. Unlike many other books available on this topic, this book addresses the benefits of using digital equipment as usage of film becomes almost extinct. Emphasizing the need for an up-to-date resource, the photography market is currently undergoing a complete transformation from film to digital in both consumer and professional usages.
