Nice job on your first remote, a couple suggestions,
1- get someone to hold up a broom or something to pre focus on, the guy in the paint looks to be sharp not the player going for the layup.
2- get a safety cable don't trust that camera strap

ya i have a cable on order... I know rookie dumb ass mistake but ya haha.

I was kind of wondering how you do the pre focus... I took a gamble of f/3.5 and 3 feet... But obviously it didn't work. I figure the Focus Point would be the hardest thing of it.

Hey at least you attempted to make some sort of safety cable. I've seen a ton of guys that didnt even do what you did.

Just for future reference if you go to home depot or lowes you can buy a good cable for under $5-10. Then buy two cheap carabiners and you're set ($1 each). All you have to do is get a good heavy key ring (I use grenade pin rings) thread it through the metal part on your camera that the strap attaches too and you have a rock solid cable for under $15.

Here's one similar to the cable I have. http://www.lowes.com …safety%2Bcable%​26page%3D2 (external link)

The problem with the ones in the link a few posts above (the lowel cables) is they are very short. Backboards are about 3.5 feet tall, so if the camera is in the middle of the board you need about 4 feet of cable to go up and over the top supporting brace and back down to the camera. If its closer to the bottom you need even more cable to make it over the top. The Lowel cables are great but in my experience they are a bit too short most of the time.
