Group Rules

Thank you for considering joining the Big Lens Fast Shutter group.

You must agree to our terms before we let you into the sports photography inferno:

1. Training Ground
First and foremost, this is not optional. When you agree to join this group and you are asked to submit your photos to Training Ground by either Matt or Ryu, you do it. If you don't comply, you will be removed from the group. Big Lens Fast Shutter is here to help you become a better sports photographer, not to increase the hits on your pictures. Training Ground is integral to the group and if you ignore our invitations, you can have fun elsewhere.

You can submit 2 of your photos onto this thread each month and we will critique them on video. You should bring some thick skin into this as we could get nasty. Please remind yourself that we are doing this because we love you. :)
You can check out the previous videos here:

For precise rules, please check out this month's thread.

2. Assignment Desk
This is our monthly assignment we give you on our podcast. We ask you to shoot certain sports photos for us and we will discuss some of them on the show. Please find the thread that says “Assignment Desk EP…” and submit your entries there. Live and learn.

That's it. If you agree, sign with blood or ketchup and you're in.

We support ourselves with your pledge on Patreon. If you think we are helping you become a better sports photographer, please goto and tell us how much you love us by pledging to our cause.

See you around. :)
