This moody HDR of Bradford Stadium is home of the Valencia Tigers & El Dorado Hawks. The scoreboard is dark and the stands are empty….just a few weeks until Friday Night Lights are ready to fire up again. Bring on football season!
This recent composite is one of my favs…it is my daughters softball team. It is our first season of softball. Def a fantastic sport for girls. We have a great team and coaches. While watching the games every weekend I had recent thought about a “Team Poster”. Once the background was complete…the fun part was to get the photo session complete in mid-season. This past Saturday I brought all my gear (I’ll post the list below) and set up a white backdrop clamped onto the backstop. I do not use green screen. It can cause a green hue for composites. I had an hour to photograph all the players as they warmed up before the game. We got it in and I processed for about 3 hours Sunday AM to complete the poster. Now its time to order some prints or vinyl banners!!! I really enjoy doing these posters….hopefully I will have a chance to photograph more teams in the future! Such a great keepsake!

I used the Octa straight on to the subjects…I had the camera lower and slightly to the left. The Einstein are amazing lights…so much power! Beautiful even light! I am ready to give up on my hot shoe flashes!!
