How to Shoot Snowboard Photos

Shooting tips from Onboard’s Photo Editor Sami Tuoriniemi

Something like a Canon 7D will stand you in good stead for taking decent snowboard photos.

You should invest in an SLR (film) or DSLR (Digital) camera, plus lenses and, of course, film and/or memory cards. When I was young I tried to shoot snowboarding with point-and-shoot cameras, but they turned out really bad as you can’t focus in the right spot and the quality is crap as they generally have automatic- or semi-automatic settings that have little scope for adjustment. If you are thinking about shooting anything other than tourist snaps, you’ll need an SLR or DSLR camera.
