Many of us are afraid of the camera. This is a problem that I have had to face a lot through the years. Sometimes it's scary to change the settings or even to take a lot of 'stupid' or 'boring' pictures. And while it's important to change your angles, and think of the rule of thirds, if you're too nervous to click the button you won't have any pictures- period. So remember, this isn't a film camera- any mistakes can be easily deleted and you might catch a great photo. Oh and don't forget the layout that you're taking photos of- the sports layouts need mostly horizontal.
