It was a slow start to the games this week. Guys were late showing up, and even slower to warmup. So, I took the opportunity to get some candid shots of Dwayne, a.k.a., “Smitty.” Each week I try and spotlight a different player, and Smitty was due. The pictures of Smitty are located at the end of the gallery.
It was a mix of clouds this Saturday, which meant I had to constantly change my position to locate the best light. My preference is for the sun to hit the players at a 45 degree angle, simulating the type of light you would get in a studio setting. This not only helps with lighting the player’s faces, but also creates nice shadows and angles. Direct sunlight would be too flat and boring.
