p.1 #1 · My friend't childhood baseball gear


So I'm almost exclusively a macro & sky photographer, but for my friend's birthday I stole his childhood baseball gear and constructed this photo. Criticism is welcome and appreciated.



Details:

Canon 5d Mark 2, Canon 24-70f/2.8L I. I used the mt-24ex twin flashes, taped together and placed in a softbox. Handheld camera right, about 3 feet away and 1 foot off the ground.

f/8, 1/100, iso100. 24mm focal length.


For fun, here is an unedited, straight out of camera jpg of this exact photo.

Very nice. The only thing that I'm not in love with is the shape of the cap's crown.

Exactly my thoughts, the hat looks a little weird. Any chance of stealing it again?? Rest look really good. tks... If you do get to it again, is there a brand-name on the ball?

... and the Yankees logo...







Sorry... had to be done. There's a reason Bosox fans die hard...

Nice capture.....+1 on Paul's comment on the cap's crown. Reminds me of the stuff we used when I was very young.

Hey Keegan,

Nice idea. I echo all other comments...

Here are a couple suggestions/ideas....

1). Yes, fix crown on hat
2). Can you use the other side of the glove (ie: web side)
3). Write or photoshop his name/birthdate on ball.
4). Place ball inside of mitt..

Again, just a few ideas to consider...

Sincerely,
Randal

3). Perhaps put the ball in mitt

I really like the post processing. That Yankees logo definitely adds some extra pop!

Thanks everyone for the comments and recommendations. I didn't even notice the crown of the hat was lumpy, now I can't un-see it. Lesson learned, look through the lens at everything.
