Sports Photography: Best Moments of Olympics

Whether it’s photos taken by a professional photographer or a lucky person, a few seconds difference can make the difference between an iconic photo and a normal photo.

A picture of a full moon rising through Olympic rings hanging under Tower Bridge during the 2012 London Olympics. The moon created a sixth circle in the Olympic logo that spread during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. This photo attracted thousands of comments on social networking sites. Many also joked about the strict policies of the International Olympic Committee on the protection of the Olympic logo.

This picture shows Usain Bolt smiling as he is racing to win the men’s 100-meter Semi-Final at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Photographer Kai Pfaffenbach explains how he got the horrible photo. surprised that Usain Bolt was about to prepare for the 100m semi-final, he decided to play with a slow shutter speed for that race. He set the shutter speed down to 50 seconds and was waiting for the moment when he passed the position I stood. The moment he looked to the left with a proud smile and my first thought was to hope for this moment.

At all the final rhythmic gymnastics of the London Olympics, Marcelo Del Pozo has captured this surreal moment. Del Pozo said a major event like the Olympics made photography more difficult. At an event with lots of good photographers shooting from all angles means you need a little luck to get something different.

Photographer Yannis Behrakis focused on combining the right angle, time and background for this photo. He enjoyed seeing the contestants’ faces while diving. This task turned out to be a very difficult task because he had to focus his long lens on the character. He was blessed with one of the top athletes of the event – Hu Jia who won the silver medal.
