About 6 months ago on a family reunion I kind of launched the idea that I’d take pictures of Sven’s basketball team. Yesterday me & my interim assistant Nico hit the road.
Last minute notice: 2 teams, 20 players, 2 hours, portrait & team photos please…
And I didn’t want any of these kind of shots either … so the heat was ON!
Earlier this week David hobby over at strobist posted a very cool link to an article by Dustin Snipes: “70 basketball portraits in in two days”. I already had a similar lighting scheme in mind but some of the posing tips came in very handy. (I’m terrible with guiding models). So a big thanks to guys like David & Dustin for sharing with the community, I don’t think I would have been able to pull this off without guys like them.
I still have to go through all the pictures but, this one was a natural first pick.
Next week I’ll be doing a tech post about the location, lighting for the portraits (for those who can’t wait) and lighting for the team pictures.
I always appreciate some good constructive feedback! So lets hear it.
