This was a great photo to make, it is of the unstoppable Scout, with the indomitable Michele.
These ladies make a great team, Michele, works as the soccer coach for the local Vienna team, Scout is one of there MVP's what great form she has, Oh! to be young and flexible again.
This photo was taken under a little bit of pressure, the fading fall sun was disappearing, it was being swallowed up by the distant tree line, the shadows cast were great, just getting a bit thick.
I am not going to give away all the tricks for this shot, got to keep you guessing a bit.
The background is not quite as I would like it, I think I would like to try this shot on a proper soccer field, with goal posts behind. With maybe a bit more setup time.
I like this shot, I think Scouts position is perfect, and she is so Accurate with that ball, nearly every shot had the ball perfectly placed, unfortunately for Mom, she never managed to duck every time, Michele, I hope the headache has worn of a little by now!
The tech details, are:
1/40 of a sec, f8, ISO 100, using a 100mm macro lens, just 'cause it's macro, does not mean you can't use it for other stuff. The Camera was the 5d mk3. I had two speed lights set up one for each model, both set up and triggered remotely.
