softball pros and cons? Here's what's wrong with that example: The "V" is bass-awkward! The ends of the lineup are the farthest from the camera, and they appear to be the shortest ones on the team. Even if you wanted to do a "V", then at least consider your DOF when lining them up. ***** My thought EXACTLY!!!!! What kind of person tries to make the shorter girls look EVEN shorter by positioning them the farthest from the lens? A BIG problem is 1)shooting from too close with a wide-angle lens and 2) NOT having the back of the camera plano-parallell with an imaginary back wall! Meaning, keep the camera lens at BELT buckle height, and NEVER at eye-level of standing players! Never "shoot down at" people in static or posed groups, or they do not look right.
