Really great.
Integrating the sun & flash together came out great.
If I was one of these kids, I would love what you've done for them.

Man I think you nailed it, what a great result in those conditions. Great editing too. I bet all the team and friends/fam are super happy with that result.

My only question is how you managed to balance that strobe on that c-stand like that in gusty wind! Maybe I can't see the counter weight or something. Yikes!  :p

Very best,

Thanks. I have 3 standbags on the legs of the C-stand and one hanging off the counter end (hard to see). For most of the day it was extended much less but I had to adjust a few times. A proper boom arm/counterweight would have been safer.

I shoot a LOT of these composite type groups, almost never get a chance to scout, can seldom get anyone to understand they can't be done in a conference room already filled with a conference table, why wind is a problem. You did fantastic with the conditions given.

A friend of mine saw a team composite I did a while back for a basketball team and asked if I would create one for her son's lacrosse team. I've been a youth coach for many years and enjoy the process and creativity involved, so naturally, I agreed.

I had a very busy work schedule leading up to the shoot, and I didn't do a great job of scouting the location or prepping in general. To make it work logistically with a team of 20 kids, we decided to shoot the photos during their 2-hour practice. I had team moms handle all the logistics, since that's often the hardest part.


Here's the result:

What would I do differently? Plan a little better - scout the area beforehand at the same time of day and find a better place to shoot. Begin with a rough of the composite first then shoot the photos to fit into it. Possibly shoot the players over 2 practices instead of one so I would have more time with each player. (I usually do most of these things, but work and other projects got in the way this time).

I know this post got long-winded but I'm always trying to learn from others so I appreciate it when others share all the deets. Let me know if you have any questions.

I think these photos are awesome! the lighting and the look is spot on. The only question I have (speaking from experience) is did any of thee moms ask why they weren't smiling or ask for photos with smiles? I like the moodiness of the serious shots but some moms aren't as accepting.

The team had the regular league photos done at the beginning of the season, with the standard smiling pose and team photo taken out on the field. It's the same look I had in my middle school sports 30+ years ago. Pretty boring, which is why I wanted to do something completely different for this end-of-season photo. This was essentially a gratis shoot with no pre-ordering or packages, so parents weren't really involved except for knowing that we were going to shoot photos one day during practice.

You're right though - the look/mood is not for everyone, and if it was the only photo of them for the season I may have needed to provide them with a happier look.

This team pic and individuals are being handed out at the end-of-season party. The coaches (x3) will each get a large 12x30 panorama and each player will receive a single 8x12 individual photo. Players can then order the team panorama or additional individuals online with a link provided to them, all marked up to cover printing and cost of the shoot. I'm glad to let you know their reactions and orders after the season concludes next week.

Before- I had a flash shooting through a 7" reflector on the floor aiming at the background, two strip boxes on the right shooting through a DIY tracing paper diffuser in a window screen frame and a 4th flash firing through the softbox on the left. I hand held another diffuser in front of it for the final shot. Oh, and I carefully placed gold foil paper cutouts behind both the bottle and glass supported by a piece of styrofoam to reflect light through them from behind. They were aimed at the light source on the right (camera) side.

Thanks. She had this dress and I was thinking of shooting on that road for a while as it is closed for traffic.

Awesome shot, albeit I'd underexpose the background by one stop though, no more :)
