This is my son's first year playing baseball. He's taken a strong liking to the game and hopefully will enjoy it for many years to come. I decided to start capturing the events during his first year in Little League and create a photo book for him to look back on later in life.

Nikon D700 with 24-70mm lens @ 70mm
1/1600 f/2.8 Iso 200
Strobist info: SB800 with dome diffuser on the ground camera right (fill light) triggered with a PocketWizard Flex TT5.

Great idea, and great photo. Love the pose, the lighting, and the ground-level perspective. Enjoy the ride. It goes by fast!

Awesome! Love the lighting. Did you use a colored gel on your flash?

Shots like this warm their heart when they become adults!

Thank you very much Ivan. We made it into a large print for him and he has it hanging on the wall in his bedroom. :smile:
