The girls soccer team from Clarkston High School asked me to photograph sports portraits of the seniors. We had to shoot before one of their home games and were not able to get on the field because the JV soccer game was being played. We went to a practice field on the south side of the stadium and shot in the grass. Most of the day had been pretty sunny and it clouded up as the afternoon went on. The we started shooting the clouds came in. I balanced my off camera strobes with the clouded sky and made the sky a bit dark and ominous. I asked d the girls to with smile or look tough their choice. While we were there and had everything set up we did a group shot and then some action shots of the defending, dribbling or kicking. I will show the action shots in a future post.
