    Default Dull Photos

    I have a look at the photos of top players in
    www.worldbadminton.net All photos are so dull
    and not exciting. I do believe that the players
    are agile, but the photographer can not capture
    those moments. Proably because the speed is faster
    than the speed of camera, why the record of 162mph
    is unbreakable.

    tennis has the benefit of having natural outdoor lighting. it is much more difficult to take fast action pics in an indoor stadium.

    besides, badminton is <b>so much</b> faster than tennis.

    it's doable.....if they can take pics of fighter planes in action then this is certainly doable....

    definitely not indoors(for fighter planes).....but i'm pretty sure that professional photographers can do it (of course for badminton).....

    Squash is slower. I dun get it, the table tennis ball is so small, yet the pictures they take have higher resolution.

    the pics on the latest news "All South East Asian Affair" on worldbadminton.net

    they should definitely have captions and also close-up of the face to show expressions....

    Picture, let's say, 2 photos of F1 racing cars. travelling @ 220 mile/hr. a photo taken with a camera of shutter speed 1/1000s can freeze action to give a sharp pic. whereas a pic taken with a camera of shutter speed abt 1/2s wld give a blurred pic. kinda like Heisenberg's uncertainty principle.

    One key factor is that while badminton is an indoor game, flashlight is not permitted to use. So what shuttle speed you need to get perfect picture?
