April Photo Walk : Shooting Lacrosse

Photos by Michael Maloney

Join Michael as we shoot America’s first sport : lacrosse.

For this photo walk, we will visit the campus of Acalanes High School in Lafayette where we will have sideline access to shoot a girl’s varsity game against Dougherty Valley.

Lacrosse is fast-paced and full of action. A real challenge to photograph! Shooting soccer is easy compared to this sport! The athletes sprint up and down the field with abrupt starts and stops, while making precision passes with the crosse. It’s a combination of basketball, soccer and hockey, and one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States.

Michael will be on hand to help you set up your camera and give you valuable info to help you come up with some great action shots. What you learn in this photo walk, can be applied to any other action sport or just to capture images of your kids running through the park.

Although we will have sideline access, a long telephoto lens is highly recommended.

Sign up early for this photo walk as it will be limited to just 12 participants.

Tuesday, April 30th

6:30 PM

Cost : $25.00

Call or email Michael at Camera West in Walnut Creek for more info or to sign up.

  1. Wow Michael, great shots. I hope we get some like these on the photo walk! When you mention longs lens. How long do you recommend for a full frame sensor?

    • Thanks Paul. An 80-400mm range would be perfect. I usually shoot with 3 bodies so on one, I have a 70-200mm and on the other a 400mm. Third body is a wide angle which is for those rare times the action happens right in front of you.
