@Magic our HS cheerleaders do much, much worse than that.

Splits while jumping forward off a pyramid, for example.

No...I don't think she is doing anything wrong but like Dan said, "over protective society". I have on similar except the leg is about 80 degrees verticle. I won't post them with the previous exception so there is no chance
of someone saying that I'M inappropriate and get banned from the school grounds like another OP I know.

It kind of sucks the way it has gotten. I shot my first Fri. night high school game and watched the cheerleaders in between some time outs and such and never snapped a shot. I just picked up this gig and didn't want to chance anything inappropriate. I never have encountered any problems but I've read about so many on this forum.

Thats ridiculous.

I guess that means 99% of gymnastic shots are inappropriate? Swimming? Diving? Womens Lacrosse?
How else are you supposed to get a picture of a cheerleader doing certain things? Youre not taking pictures of their underwear. They wear bloomers for a reason...

If it is a good shot, take it.
If it is junk, junk it.
If you get banned over a good shot, fight it.

Why is it OK for you to watch them but inappropriate to take the pictures?

I agree 100% with Adam, this shot and others are NOT inappropriate. I have been shooting cheer for 5 years now its what they do, as well as gymnast and other sports. They do where "Spankys" for this reason and they are designed to stay put for the most part. That being said I have choosen to destroy some very good photos just bescuse they are questionable. Society has gotton way out of line sometimes with its over protecting.
I am including a couple from this week here in PNW area. Its nice to have some outdoor light for these instead of the notoriuos indoor gym light once the season starts.

Lets of course also add women's tennis, beach volleyball, regular volleyball (because those shorts are waaaay too tight), triathalon, track and field,....et., etc.

These folks are all performing at a public sporting event and I think it can be reasonably expected and anticipated that they will be getting their photo taken. Yes while some shots may catch them in awkward or embarrassing poses (I recall a shot of one of the US women beach volleyball players celebrating their win that was very "risque" so to speak) it is still a moment in time of their performance and has every right to be published or shown as needed. I agree that you don't want to really embarrass the person, but if the shot is needed to tell the story, then the shot is needed to tell the story.

Now, if you are purposely shooting subjects like this to GET shots that are embarrassing or inappropriate, then I argue that you are no longer a sports photographer but instead have joined the ranks of the scummy paparazzi group.

I agree with all of you, I don't find them inappropriate. I'm just saying the way society is getting photographing minors period has gotten controversial. Do a search there are countless threads about photogs getting shouted down by parents for shooting there kids.

Why is it OK for you to watch them but inappropriate to take the pictures?

Does this even need to be answered. Again I'm not trying to say there is anything wrong with these. I shoot youth sports, gymnastics, dance and also have two teenage daughters so it is something I read a lot about. Society as a whole has gotten a bit nuts. Sometimes I fill like packing up and go live in a bus in Alaska. :)

Someone asked the difference between watching them perform vs. snapping a picture. Well, the obvious thing that comes to mind is when you see the performance, that 'crotch shot' may last but for a split second. But a photographic image of it 'freezes' the shot.

Not sure if anyone saw it, but during the olympics, the Dallas Morning News ran two shots over the course of several days of the girls gymnastics and the one shot that they ran was pretty huge and it was one of the US girls on the uneven parallel bars in mid air with her legs just spread wide open. I remember thinking at the time how that shot might be uncomfortable for some. And like I said, when you are watching the performance, it all happens so fast that your mind is not drawn to any one particular aspect of the performance or the performer.

I guess what I'm saying is I can appreciate the sensitivity to the poster who errs on the side of caution.

No, I don't think the photo is inappropriate at all. If you had composed or cropped the photo so that her crotch area was the main focus of the photo, then it would be inappropriate. The photo you posted just shows a cheerleader/dancer doing a typical pose for her activity. The "spankys" under the skirt are part of the uniform and they are worn to cover parts of the body that will be willingly and openly exposed because of the various moves the wearer will make during her routine. She is also wearing tights that are like pantyhose which completely cover her private areas under the spankys as well as her legs, (much like ice skaters wear). This girl is covering more of her body than a gymnast or swimmer.

Catching a glimpse, (or a photo for that matter), of a performer/athlete like this is not like looking up a girl's skirt at the mall. Anyone wearing a dress or skirt has the reasonable right to privacy concerning her body under the garment. The girl at the mall does not intend to have that part of her body visible to the people around her, therefore an upskirt photo in that case is not only inappropriate but unlawful. The girl in your photo as well as her parents, her coach and her school all fully know that her crotch and butt are going to show during her performance and all of them apparently consent to that and are satisfied that she is reasonably covered.

Still, I do agree that some photos may be questionable as to good taste and common decency. If a photo is unflattering or tends to accentuate a feature in a way that the subject would most likely find uncomfortable, I think it is not only appropriate but necessary to either not publish/share the photo or to correct the blemish. For example, on two different occasions I have taken the liberty to use the healing brush in pp to save a good photo, both were girl volleyball players. Once, to hide the "foot of a humped, desert dwelling mammal" and the other to smooth out a white jersey that was a bit too bumpy. No one ever noticed the fix and I saved the shots.

Just my two cents. I don't care to argue my points but I thought I would still share them.

Seriously, IMO, the "inappropriateness" is caused by people who look at the picture and cant appreciate it for the picture that it is and feel they HAVE to look at the nether-regions of any particular athlete. Ive seen many pictures just as youve described and they are some of the best gymnastics pictures Ive ever seen (uneven bars at least...).

Its the people who see that picture and think, "Gee..Look at her legs spread wide open" and cant appreciate the athleticism involved or the photographers skill that are the problem.

Just my two cents on the situation.



P.S. Thats not to say that there arent perverts out there who aim to capture those type of pictures.

As a jr High school teacher...and one who raised three daughters, I am just aware of the sensitivity and self-conciousness that many young girls feel at that age.

Not to argue the point, but I just was expressing an understanding that the earlier poster voiced about wanting to be careful and sensitive to this when dealing with young girls.

I can fully appreciate the athleticism involved of any event. But in most cases, the 'event' unfolds in very fast time...and an image tends to 'freeze' it. And hence, it can create uncomfortable situations for the girls involved. Obviously, there is a huge difference between a girl who is performing on the world stage and a 12 year old cheerleader at the local school who was not expecting her pictures to be posted anywhere.

14th of September 2008 (Sun), 23:05
I had the photo police come after me for posting some woman on a beach, in a public place for all to see. I can see a issue if you were to zoom in on their crotch or something and post it. They are still young girls. I have a 12 and 14 year old myself, and the 14 year old plays volleyball in very short shorts.

I dont like it, I see most all in the audience are boys. But you know, when I was that age, I was right there too.

There is nothing wrong with these photos, if you dont like it, dont look at them. I have said it before and I will say it again, mind your own business and we can all worry about yourselves.

Oh yeah, go cry to the olympics while your at it, did you see the gymnastics on NBC? You guys need to get over yourself and stop trying to protect everyone else.

The issues are intertwined and not so simple.

With a minor child, we should be very careful.

As with other similar threads about children, I've noticed parents generally have a completely different perspective of 'rights' vs. 'obligations' -- And everyone has a slightly different moral compass guiding what they post.

I have confidence in the POTN mods; if something gets posted which is OT, I think it will go away.

Yes, teens are self-conscious. But that doesn't have much to do with cheerleading or gynmastics. If they were concerned with the way they look that much, they'd be petitioning for sweats to be the uniforms. Besides, the self-conscious ones tend to hide, not do flips at halftime.

As the father of a cheerleader and one who has photographed many HS and college cheering events over the last years, I would not have deleted the photo in question. In fact, if you hadn't mentioned it, I probably never have noticed that some could consider it inappropriate.

I've had many pretty decent shots that I have deleted because I wouldn't have wanted to see my daughter in "that pose".

But on the other hand, if the photo is of a well executed stunt or tumble and there is something else that is the subject of the photo, it stays.

YES, there is a reason to be cautious as to what you post on line. Last March, I had a person, from out of state, try to place an order for prints from 3 middle schools in my state. After calling him, it was determined that he had no legitimate reason to order these. I canceled a $200 order. I now give the cheerleaders the option to password protect the gallery if they want to but even that may not be enough because if the person is at the event, he may get the password. Always take a close look at where the order is coming from vs the location the kids are from.

i believe society is overprotective now. As long as images are not pornographic or the focus of the photo is inapproriate. However everyone has different standards and what is ok for some is not for others.

I personally am very careful, i have taken photographs of kids sport carnivals and took 2,500 photos at the last one and gave them all to the school. i checked every photo before I burnt it on dvd to make sure that none of them appeared to be inappropriate and they were all ok. But as some people have previously stated with the freeze frame on cameras when you take a picture it may not be your intention to take an inappropriate photo, however in the taking of a photo it may turn out to be one.

Cheerleading is a sport, though there's some squads who literally stand there just cheering every once in awhile filling space (i.e. not much of a sport) and others that do some amazing stunts and routines (sport). Seen both while playing, coaching, and shooting - even the young (5-6) now compete and enjoy it, it's competitive and fun for them at all levels - even though some are better and more serious than others. That's why you have it, not to mention Title IX nowadays for some.

Why start a thread? Well, long before it was taken over with non-HS cheerleading shots it was probably just like any other thread...there used to be more themed ones like this when this thread was started, but they've faded away kind of. Believe it or not cheerleaders and their parents want photos to, I used to never shoot them until parents started asking why and to not worry about feeling "weird". Amazingly enough you can get good shots of cheerleaders of all ages, shocking!

Not everyone has the mind set you have here.

Someone asked the difference between watching them perform vs. snapping a picture. Well, the obvious thing that comes to mind is when you see the performance, that 'crotch shot' may last but for a split second. But a photographic image of it 'freezes' the shot.

Not sure if anyone saw it, but during the olympics, the Dallas Morning News ran two shots over the course of several days of the girls gymnastics and the one shot that they ran was pretty huge and it was one of the US girls on the uneven parallel bars in mid air with her legs just spread wide open. I remember thinking at the time how that shot might be uncomfortable for some. And like I said, when you are watching the performance, it all happens so fast that your mind is not drawn to any one particular aspect of the performance or the performer.

I guess what I'm saying is I can appreciate the sensitivity to the poster who errs on the side of caution.
I'll totally agree with this.I shoot for a private Christian high school and I have to be VERY carefull about what I'll post online or what I'll focus on because of peoples sensitivity about their kids.If anyone would ask me if I got any good shots of a say a girls Volleyball game I'll offer my camera to them to see my shots on my camera just to avoid any sense of I'm taking improper shots.

Often a question of personal preference, framing is a complicated subject. First of all, try some vertical framing (or post samples if you did shoot verticals). Second, there are points on the human body that are natural framing cutoffs, but you should avoid awkward cuts that stop at half a hand or just above the knees. In the first shot, if you had got the whole pom-pom and hand in that would have been better--also cropping out the half pom-pom on the right. You have to allow room in your frame for movement, if you want to avoid that problem.

The team shot should have shown all of the girls who were kneeling, note half an hand here and there. It's hard to think of it all on the fly, so keep practicing.

Snyd comment: hando wrote "Besides being a good perv".This was not so much a question as it was a unnecessary comment.

ESPN thinks enough about it to devote coverage to many of the events.

2."And why do we need a thread devoted to younger high school girls?"

Why not a thread? Its a sport like any other were not "just" talking about sideline cheer here. These kids are atheletes. Competitive cheer is very agressive and complicated. It promotes exercise and team building. Its not just about girls although it is dominated by girls there are plenty of males involved and more and more every year. I know plenty of H.S. football studs who anxiously await to participate in this sport.And who can blame them really.

3. "Isn't that just a bit tacky?"

No more than your "Perv' comment.

4. "It looks like fill in entertainment for other sports. Is that not correct?"

Altough it is entertaining, "NO" that is not correct. See above.
I hope this clears up some of your questions. Im just saying perhaps some research prior to commenting may help with your assumptions.

I understand exactly what you're saying and even realized it before posting. However, my biggest problem was that I didn't figure it out until looking at the pictures on my monitor when attempting to pp. It was definitely a learning experience because this was the first time I had attempted to shoot cheer-leading, plus it was with a borrowed camera that I was not familiar with. I'll definitely keep your comments in mind at the next event and hopefully get even better pictures.

Thanks

P.S. in the first picture, do you think the cut at the belly is ok?

Not one of your links provides an explanation of the purpose of cheerleading. They promote cheerleading but they don't answer my questions. So I typed "what is the purpose of cheerleading" into Google and found this 2nd from the top.

http://cheerleading.about.com/od/skillsandabilities/a/031002a.htm
It says cheerleading does not meet the criteria fo a sport and that the primary purpose is to entertain.

This one http://www.bigfoot.k12.wi.us/activities/cheer/cheerleading.htm
explains the purpose of cheerleading is to support competitive sporting event of schools.

This 2010 Connecticut court ruling that cheerleading is not a sport is cut and dry.
http://chronicle.com/blogs/players/is-cheerleading-a-sport/25707

So if cheerleading is NOT A SPORT, and it's purpose is to ENTERTAIN, and middle school ages are from 11-14 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_school, then I think it is tacky for adults to have a thread about taking photographs of minors who are being used for entertainment.

Interesting debate. At my girls' high school (graduated this year) cheerleading is treated like all other sports. They train and compete. And they no longer cheer for other teams. So it has become more like a competitive combination of dance and gymnastics.

Hando, so I guess that means nobody is allowed to start a thread on best crowd shots, or best jube shots, or best stadium shots - only action photos from the game and nothing else? Sideline shots, of course not, that's boys just standing there! Are you kidding?

Cheerleading has already been described as what it is - there's teams that just sit there on the sideline and do nothing, I don't consider them a sport at all - then there's competitive cheer where they do compete...all schools around here that I know of compete for sectional titles. So they compete against other schools and win a championship, kind of sounds like a sport to me.

The reason the judge had to rule that way is because Title IX is extremely out dated before any kind of competitive cheer was ever around, it used to be just support and not anything on their own, it's SLOWLY changing in the rules but has already changed in many schools.

Yea, this thread has gone all over the place from what it was intended (high school), but just because your mind goes to some dark seedy place doesn't mean a normal persons does.

If you are looking for a one line or one word credo as to what the purpose of cheerleading is you may not find exactly that on those sites, you may actually have to read between the lines a bit or even read period. Even the links you provide had more to it than you let on here to bolster your pointless banter.
I really don’t need to convince you of anything, if you’re happy I’m happy for you, but I truly doubt your all that happy (just a personal observation) in your life but oh well.
I do know that I have events, and work for companies all around the US doing action shots of competitive cheer events and we all make money doing so.
After looking at your public profile I notice that you may be from Australia and you guys may be a bit slower to pick up on the “Sport” of Competitive Cheer but its coming, in fact I happen to know one of the guys over there that is covering most of the bigger shows down there. He is a member here and FM as well. And your country has made a nice showing at Worlds the last two years that I have been involved with it.
This is actually from one of your links that you provided, and is pretty much exactly what “Competitive Cheer’ Events are all about Please do not confuse “Sideline Cheer” for the other. Read a little bit and you will see the difference I’m sure.
I’m also sure if you want to use your troll like tactics to keeps this going you can but this will be my last post regarding your thoughts and this subject. I refuse to keep participating. Or do like S. Horton suggested above, have a good one.
Definition of a Sport
In a dictionary you may find the word "sport" defined as a "physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively." It is the last part of the definition "engaged in competitively" that makes considering cheerleading a sport difficult. According to the Women's Sports Foundation the following criteria has to be met to be considered a sport:
• A physical activity which involves propelling a mass through space or overcoming the resistance of a mass
• A contest or competition against or with an opponent
• Is governed by rules which explicitly define the time, space and purpose of the contest and the conditions under which a winner is declared
• The acknowledged primary purpose of the competition is a comparison of the relative skills of the participants
