    I took the idea for this shot from Benji over at the Camel. He did a variation with a baseball player and I really liked the shot.
    I did this one for one of my senior shoots. It was his and his mom's favorite of the day.
    I wish I had shot it on seamless paper to keep the wrinkles out but this is what I had set up so went with it.
    This is my 1st year doing senior portraits and still have much to learn.

    Would appreciate your critique.

    Would anyone do this differently?
    Recommendations for making me better are very appreciated.

    I don't do senior portraits however I do take photos in the spring of middleschool / elementary school kids. This is similar to something I've done with some of the basketball players there so I may have some tips.

    First I feel the position he is laying is quite awkward, as well as his face / arm placement. Maybe if he were standing he could have concentrated more on his face (thinking it would be more natural for someone to spin a ball standing up)

    The dark shadow cast is a bit strong as well, though you are aware of that.

    Other than that though I like the idea, and as long as they are happy then all went well!

    Thanks guys. Excellent suggestion about having him stand up for the shot. I don't really have high enough ceilings to make that work (I am having the suspended acoustical tile ceiling removed this summer) but I could have had him seated or something and then maybe just show upper body and ball.
    Thanks for the tips. I always appreciate the help.
