Don’t Rein in the Sporty Kid
Sporty Kid Portraits
Sports photography doesn’t always have to be outside photography.
Its not every day basketballs, rackets and, (what’s that thing called again?) RipStick or perhaps RibUnstick (does that mean your ribs won’t be sticking to you any more when you fall down?) makes its way into the portrait studio either. Heaven forbid the fall takes place in the studio.
Young people like action and although you can try to rein them in, in front of a screen it’s best to just let them conceptualize what an action shot is and go with it. Oh, and sometimes it’s OK to keep the dirt on the sports equipment. Young people like that kind of thing.
