I am trying to become a member of Sportsshooters.com and submited a folio last fall and was not accepted. I am getting ready to do it again and looking for some input. I have to submit 10 of my best action photos. Things they look for are face, ball contact.

Of these, what do you feel the 10 best are?

I think the last few where the slider knocks the ball out are good ones and the 1st image where the runner scores the TD. I can't speak on the basketball shots. As, I've been told, it has 3 good elements; tells a story, has the ball in it, and shows the face. Some others should stop by and help you further. What was SS reason for not accepting you?

IMO - Check the angles on the Basketball images, most appear to me to be crooked.

Also you may want to add descriptions and titles of the images in the exif.

The one thing I noticed at first is the odd cropping on all of them. Try to stay with the normal acpect ratio. It looks consistant and might fool the viewer in to thinking it's straight out of the camera. But the wide or tall crop now and then for effect is ok.

I agree, and the one thing I have been told is crop out what should not be there, which can be hard to do when there are other people in the picture. Hard not to crop out other players body parts. :)

Ya'll might disagree with me but some of those basketball shots seem too narrow for my taste.

I have had a few senior members tell me some of these images are good to go, I just need to put together 10.
At the high school level its very hard to not get distracting backgrounds.

What are your captions for each of e photos you're going to submit?
(captions are as important as the photos themselves)

Nick, going to work on them, I need to pick which 10 I am going to use also.

I am not sure how long the captions should be, need to view some others folios and see if they are short captions or more descriptive.

Captions for these should be easy: "Ugh!" "Umpfh!" "Ungh!" "Grrrrr" "Ack!"

Didn't know that was a requirement of all submitted photos. ;)

When one of the editors looks at your photos, I don't think you will have a chance to offer an excuse on a distracting background. Do your best and submit your best.
