I was Influenced to pursue action shoots because I realized sporting events have been a major part of my life. Especially Track and Field. Sports has helped mold my competitive nature, and I became excited when I registered the fact that I could expose these amazing events to the world. So far, I've attended only one track meet, where I was able to take a decent amount of photos. However, I am scheduled to attend another one December 13 to add some more shots to my growing collection. My theme is action shots, and I like showing athletes in motion, but I also like telling a story with my photos. This means taking shots before races, where nerves are clearly on display, during races, and after races where exhaustion kicks in.
