I was required to take an action shot photo for my digital media class. I chose to take a puicture of my friend jumping. I zoomed all the way out so I could get the etire subject and also show where she jumped from. The camera I used was the Olmpus D-320L. This was my first time using a camera to take an action shot.

I want to love this... but it's too small for me to see.

Their seems to be quite a few of you from the same school. Was this a school project? I wonder what the details of the project were. Only because they aren't really in the style of Natsumi Hayashi.
OK, some tips for next time, try to bounce your on-camera flash off of a wall or the ceiling, this will soften your shadows. be more aware of your background and choose one without distracting features in it. Try to use a faster shutter speed to remove any motion blur, and finally use the rule of thirds when possible.

Good luck!

Too much blur here. A lot going on in the background. But with some adjustments, it could be a good shot.

While she is cute - try again.

As a photographer I truly appreciate the idea of what appears to be a class doing this challenge as a project. If this is the case then please do not be discouraged by the score... which I am sure is very low. You are allowed to enter an image up to 800 pixels wide and this is considerably smaller than that, so that is your first mistake and probably cut your score in half. A faster shutter speed would have helped freeze the subject giving the appearance of levitation. Additionally, Natsumi generally takes photographs that seem to be more natural even though they are staged. This one seems staged and is more of an action shot then a levitation shot.

Nice air by the way... you get an extra point from me for that...

If photography is something that interests you then there is no better site to learn on than this one, so please kep submitting and learn as you go.
