As some of you may remember, I agreed to help my friend do a photo shoot for her daughter’s college softball team. In the end, I did most of the photo shooting while my friend made a behind the scene video and kept the girls loose. We had a lot of fun and the girls were thrilled at the “legit” photo shoot with backdrop, lights and reflectors. They had some poses they wanted to do and I brought my iPad loaded with some cool softball poses I found on the web. For lights we had two soft boxes, a speedlight off camera with a flash disc modifier and a wall of floor to ceiling windows with a partly sunny/partly cloudy mid day sky. Ceiling too high for bounce flash. We shot some of these with just the soft boxes and some with just the flash, trying to use the windows and changing light outdoors as best we could. No time to reset lights for each shot but we made adjustments as needed. The lighting needs work I know but I learned a lot and have a long list of do/don’t do for next time. This experience was exhausting and challenging and I actually liked it more than I thought I would. Here are some of my favorites: I put this in Just For Fun because there’s so many photos but feedback and constructive criticism are more than welcome.
