Ryu and Matt skip the month’s shooting highs and lows to pre-announce the Big Lens Fast Shutter Portfolio Review service. More information coming very soon.
Ryu and (mostly) Matt talk about stepping away from the field and shooting non-traditional events where you might be able to get closer to the action and make more interesting pictures.
Training Ground is now on video. If you’d like to participate (and we think you should), enter your pictures in the Flickr thread and make sure to tag them BLFSTG201309.

Our new segment where we say good things about sports photographs is called Cross-Counter. We decided to go with sports portraits in response to a reader question. Ryu picked (John Tlumacki’s picture of a fan dancing in the stands and Matt picked Kieran Doherty’s picture from the UK Cold Water Swimming Championships. (first picture in gallery).
Special thanks to…
Our new producer Robb Massar
