I had a photoshoot for The Enterprise today with Chaz Dalton, a kicker for Mountlake Terrace High. Mr. Dalton recently kicked a 42-yd field goal, and frequently kicks successfully in that range. I had about a half hour to shoot him, and guess what? It took a lot longer than I thought it would to make a frame with the ball in it — man, he kicks fast. I suggested to his coach that he get tomorrow off after the extra practice I made him do.
For anyone curious about the lighting, I had an SB-26 on 1/2 power camera right just out of frame, and another sb-26 on 1/4 power zoomed to 85mm, lighting the ball and the ground.
This one was shot with a sb-26 on full power into a small softbox, and a sb-26 on 1/4 power for a bit of fill camera left.
Same kind of moment but I thought including the softbox gave the image a different, cool feel. What do you think?
