I got home and decided to go into my little ones room to pick a subject for today's photo. I figured surely a little boy would have something cool to take a picture of. I remember taking a picture on my oldest son's dresser a couple of years ago and it's one of my favorite pictures. It was quite the epitome of a young boy. There was all kinds of "stuff" on his dresser from a piggy bank, to books to a Poke' Ball. I did it in B&W and it was pretty neat looking. So in Alex's room I saw his five football trophy's from the last five years. I took a couple pictures of all of them just arranged on his table but they were pretty much just "snapshots". I decided that since the light was low and the "overall" shot idea wasn't working, that I'd bring them out in to the living room and go from there. I dropped a navy blue shirt over the two tallest trophy's and started snapping away. After 20 pictures and angling a lot of them to make it look as though the first guy that is getting tackled, was also being chased by another player, I finally got ONE that I liked. I was not happy with the rest of them at all. The navy color was chosen because my son played for the Pirates whose colors are navy & white.
The settings were 1/30 secs, F2.8, ISO 400, WB Cloudy, Flash fired, Focal Length 20mm.
