Mustang Astros

Camera:
Pentax K20D
Location:
San Diego, California
 
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
This is a team of 9&10 year old boys. They play in the "Mustang" level of Pony Baseball. I wanted to take a photo like this of them as I've seen this style before. I took 3 photos and there was the one boy who just couldn't keep from making a funny face. :)

Another great photo, LaRee. That lack of full compliance is one of the "joys" of dealing with boys this age.

Thank you all for the kind comments. I laid flat on my back on the ground with my camera flash acting as a controller for an external flash held between my knees. I used the Pentax DA 10-17 fish eye lens. Ha! I just now noticed that I have the top of my flash diffuser in the bottom of this shot. I hadn't noticed that before!
