3) Change your perspective. Perhaps the best way to energize your images is to put your viewer in the middle of the action. To do this, anticipate where your subject is going, stake your spot, and wait. Make sure to preset your focus point and exposure. Consider focusing in on the exact point of impact, such as a foot kicking the ball, or a ball hitting the soccer goal. Feeling adventurous? Try strapping your camera to a bike and getting in the action yourself.
