Swimmer Stop Action

I went to swim practice tonight to capture some images for my files. Swimming is my favorite sport to photograph. Why? Because there is fast movement, reflections from the water and unexpected stop action results, swimming is great fun to shoot. There are a few things to keep in mind when covering swimming with your camera. A 80 to 200mm telephoto zoom helps you get close without getting wet. Using a shutter speed of 1/250 or faster will help you stop the action.In this image my shutter speed was 1/250 with the zoom lens set at 200mm.
