The powers that be at the gym asked me if I could shoot the team pictures for a book being put together for the girls. So at the pre-season dinner, I set up a blue backdrop, my tripod and flash with my 50mm lens. I had an assistant hold a reflector off to the left but there was still a significant shadow on some of the girls. I decided not to get too worked up about it since it was only going to be printed in wallet size and going in a color copied book.
Most of the girls stood there calmly hands at her sides and most of them smiled. This one kid is a complete ham and this is what she gave me. I did eventually get a "normal" shot of her but this was too fun to pass up
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
