Is it just me or is he just holding the lens in front of the lens hood? (Freelensing :))

Post #11 has the answer to this.

If you look to the left of the shooter's hand, that area is grey and not black like the lens. The gray area is part of a chair in the background which is giving the appearance of a lens hood where there is not one. The only lens hood is covered by the white sock.

I'm still not sure, yes, that upper grey could be the seat cushion (vs. the back) that we see there, but the lower dark portion does not coincide with any dark area of the stadium seating...even if what you state is indeed true, the white covered part seems misregistered (higher) to the black part

In any event, freelensing a lens in front of another lens merely results in MACRO capability super close focus, which is illogical to do in that setting.

I disagree, vehemently. Download and enlarge. You can see shooter's left index finger resting against the 'hood', and the 'hood' casts a shadow on his thumb. If you look closely, it appears as though you can see the entire open circle of the black hood. It is turned almost 90 degrees to the camera taking the photo.

I switch my vote to 'freelensing', though I've never heard of it.

I've seen it done before, and I've done it before. But, I've never done, or seen done, it with a hood installed on the lens that is attached to the camera before. It seems totally obvious to me now that using the hood is a great idea.

I'd say off-hand that you were back-focusing a bit, say on one of the chairs behind you. Things like that can happen, since our cameras can pick points aside from our desired subject that have contrast that the camera picks up on.

So, what aperture and lens focal length were you using? These issues together with the distance between the camera and the focal point help to determine the Depth of Field (the area in front of and behind your actual focal point/plane). If you used a wide aperture, such as f/4 or f/2.8) the result will be less forgiving of a bit of front or back focusing!

I was going to say "Well played." But now I think I'm going to say, "Not sure if serious."

I disgree with the "freelensing" vote simply because of the way the monopod is attached. If that was a short (almost pancake) lens with hood it wouldn't have a foot.

So the photo isn't the OP's? Now "It's not about me" makes more sense, and posting the photo makes less.

I checked that out. OP is from Tracy, California. Kids' athletic teams in all Joe's shots are from Tracy, CA. It appears the OP is Joe Rosewell. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

I think both live in Tracy, but it would seem that 'calvin3' is not 'Joe Roswell'

Click on OP's username. Click on his flickr and FB. Both are for Joe Rosewell. That should settle it, I suppose. OP is Joe Rosewell.

I think you're correct.

The camera has a Nikon strap, but the lens looks kind of weirdly shaped. Is there a Nikon lens that shape? I suppose it could be a different brand of lens: Sigma or Tamron?

Hmmm, now calvin3 needs to tell us
1) what is portrayed in OP photo
2) why he uses the POTN name that he chose (to allay fears he may be one of those 'preverts' that we hear photographers being accused of being :lol: )

Wait didn't he come here specifically to ask what is portrayed in the OP photo?

Yes, but was it merely a 'test' to see if we could figure it out? At least HE saw the photographer in the photo in action, we have no clues provided by witnessing the guy.
It could merely be a Nikon shooter masquerading as a Canon white-lens user status seeker, in which case he forgot the red stripe.
