Quick Tip for Improving Your Soccer Photography

For centuries, baseball coaches have repeated "never take your eye off the ball." This is especially true to follow the action of a soccer match. With sharp deflections, quick passes, and constant player movement, you need both eyes on the field. Many photographers mistakenly keep one eye closed while looking through the viewfinder with the other. This actually limits their sight by fifty percent. By time the ball enters the field of view, it's too late. A better approach is to keep your second eye open, utilizing your peripheral vision. This enables you to see a play unfold, anticipate the next move, and shoot.
