THANK YOU FOR SHOOTING WITH US ON MAY 7TH! There are so many of us shooting so I wanted to go over how things work on photo day. Most of you have shot with us so many of you have an idea of how the day goes. Thank you for taking a read over and I look forward to seeing you Saturday!
Please show up at by 7:30 at the OYO Complex. We begin shooting at 8:00 and have "waves" from 8:00-8:30, 10:00-10:30, 12:30-1:00, and 3:00-3:30. The following will be there until 1:00. Marc, Michelle, Cara, and Kelli. Ashley, Rob, Heather, Bill, and Margie will wrap up the 3:00 "wave." Please let me know how long you drive because I am paying for your time on the road.
Here is the process when you shoot a team:
- Coaches will give you their team envelope. On the envelope they will have marked if they want a free team photo OR a free photo with their child. Take the photos of the coaches/ kids first and mark the image number on the envelope
- Have the team line up behind you single file with order forms in hand. Take their individual photos and MAKE SURE TO MARK IMAGE NUMBER ON THEIR ENVELOPE. Shoot with your flash directly at the player and make sure you are about 7-10 feet back. Crop below the knees and above the bat. TAKE YOUR TIME AND DOUBLE CHECK THAT THEY ARE IN FOCUS AND NOT BLINKING. When you focus on the player you should have multiple "dots" on the player and at least one of the player. If the camera doesn't focus like that let go of the shutter button and start again :)
- Shoot the team photo by placing the front row on BOTH KNEES so they look uniform. Take a moment and make sure the team is organized well and don't be afraid to direct any kids who are doing screwy things.
- Write the image number of the team photo on the envelope and put it in your box.
See you Saturday morning! Thank you and we look forward to working with you. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 765-438-8630.
Thanks! Heather and Rob
