So I had this senior shoot that I was doing. It was a freebie I had donated to a charity auction. I had spoken with the father who was my contact. The Young man was a baseball player and we decided to do a mix of traditional and baseball themed images. The day before the shoot the mother apparently got involved and said absolutely no baseball images. I guess the only shots she ever got of the kid were team and individual shots. So I end up meeting a marginally interested kid on a fairly crappy day. He did his best, but its hard to engage teen boys without any sort of theme.
He definitely won that battle, those shoes aren't tennies or running shoes. Those are baseball "training shoes" worn in indoor batting cages, facilities and often worn by coaches instead of cleats. Clever fellow!
Nice images btw.
