Team Picture Ideas

I am looking for different ideas for taking team photos. I am tired of the "lining the girls up in rows one behind the other" shots. I was wondering if any has any examples of 'different' poses. I am taking pictures for my daughters 9u softball team, but any examples would be great. Thanks

Thanks for the ideas....I like randomness, did you pose them at all or just tell them to do whatever they wanted?

A little of both. I seldom pose people as I would rather they be natural. I asked them to pick a pose and then moved them so all their faces would be visible. I also changed some of their poses if they were too similar to another pose close to them to keep it "random".

Really like the uniqueness of these setups. Definitely more interesting that the typical lineup.

Did you bring a ladder with you? setup the camera on a pole of some kind? ... or are you just really really tall?

Here's a couple different ones from two different shoots..I should add that most of this was the girls' ideas. Give your athletes some room for input and be flexible and you might be surprised at what you come up with.

Both a ladder and I'm 6'4"....:lol:

I also really like some of the shots in this thread as well. Thanks for the additional ideas.

I think the key is to do something different with the camera angle, i.e ladder shooting down or on the ground shooting up.

Perfect thread for me as I'm doing a team shoot in a couple of weeks and wanted ideas. My problem is it will be a BIG team, I think over 30 athletes, but some great ideas here.
