My son's baseball team doesn't do team (or individual) photos so I took it upon myself. I wanted something a little edgy, not the boring basic team pose. I asked everyone to stay 10 minutes after a game ended up with this:

yeah, different. Pretty cool, not crazy about the background though. Would prefer backstop, or brick wall. If you have photoshop skills, maybe something custom.

I like the grouping!! Very unique. I agree about the background but I am not a fan of photoshopping a different background. It is what it is! If nothing else blur the background. Good Job!!!

I too like the grouping. The challenge that I see though is...the further spread out they are, the more 'wasted' space you end up with when printing them up. Frustrating for me as I do a lot of team shots in my area...and I pack them in tight as I can (3 rows). The print comes as either a 5x7 or 8x10 depending on the package they order...and I personally just don't care for a team picture where the players take up maybe just 1/4 or 1/3 or the page and the rest is foreground and sky.

And I'm open for suggestions or new ideas too :-)

I use Canon gear...have several bodies and lenses and am quite pleased with them.

Unfortunately you cannot take one photo that crops well in every aspect ratio. I didn't take this photo to sell to the parents as an 8x10 so I'm not bothered by the width. I knew exactly how it would end up if I cropped it to 8x10 while I was shooting it.

I know exactly what you mean about grouping them for cropping. I keep that in mind when I'm doing sports teams for pay. It's frustrating, I wish I could sell 8x12 prints and pose them like this :)
