This photo was taken by Harry How at the 2011 Masters.

Nick Watney plays a bunker a shot on the second hole during the final round of the 2010 Masters Tournament.

I post this relating to the Masters since it was close to Columbia and it was very recent, being only last weekend. It made me think that doing golf photography would be fairly easy. They only play in the sunlight and if it’s late and/or raining they can’t play. This would be very easy for lighting situations. Along with the lighting helping to the photographers needs, the action is pretty much still for 4-5 hours while a player walks 18 holes. Swinging a club only takes a couple of seconds so with a fast shutter speed you can get all of the action like the photo above does. There is no back and forth action like there is in basketball and lacrosse. While the players walk to their next shot or hole you would have the chance to walk with them and change your equipment in case you were interested in using a different lens or changing the settings on your camera. So sign me up for golf photography 🙂
