Shooting T&I for a high school bowling team, any recomendations on how to position the shots? I personally don't like standing since it doesn't fill the frame as well so any ideas would be welcome. Thanks!!!

Here's an idea. And I have NO idea how many kids would constitute a HS bowling team. Stand the kids in a pin frame fashion (and hopefully you have TEN kids) and shoot on a ladder from above. The goal would be to come away with a nice triangle of in focus faces looking like a full rack of pins.

Take the shots AT the bowling alley where they compete. You'll obviously need flash as the staging area is usually much darker than the lanes/pins area in a facility.

Walk 1/3 of the way down a lane (be careful ... way slippery!!) to shoot some live action shots. Again, you'll need flash to stop the action.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Quite a challenge and not your typical HS sports shots!

Very creative!!! I like it! Mostly concearned with how to position the indiviual shot... maybe I can have them crouch hoding the ball in front like some do before there approach.

Hello, my 2 cents...
1. Maybe get a set of pins and set them up in front of the player, have the bowler on one knee with ball in hand, showing the back ground of the lanes..
2. Maybe have them half way down the lane, shoot with long lens and half pins set up like in a slipt 7 - 10 pin setup ... is that bowling terms...LOL
3. Ask the team what they would like to do and go from there...

good luck,
Joe
