I know this violates the rule of getting the players face in the shot, but there is no way to know when an over the shoulder shot might happen to be in the proper position. With that said, does this work for you?

I think it is a great shot.

Doesn't work for me, but take my thoughts with a grain of salt -- my "expertise" comes from shooting my daughter's volleyball games.

It's a cool shot but probably only to her or her family. My daughter shoots over the shoulder a lot and the shots don't make sense to anyone if you don't know whats happening. Could be the ball coming from another shooter or anything else. Looks great on video though if you can just switch over next time
