Elsa got a new ball. I decided to get a few images of her catching but was frankly too lazy to run up and get my good camera. So I took the challenge and used my cell phone. It has a bad lag, something that I am not use to with my good cameras. If the subject is moving it has even more lag. So I worked on my lag timing.
These are straight out of the cell phone; nothing done to them.
I discovered that I had to actually take the photo before I threw the ball. It's much like the old pat your head and rub your stomach thing. It's a good thing I didn't end up throwing my cell phone.
Elsa waiting for another throw and Luke coming to see what all the raucous is about.
A little close but nice shot.
The girl has great form.
Awaiting another toss.
Tip toe catch.
Ooops, too late.
Just a fraction of a second too early.
Maybe a millionth of a second too late?
Threw the ball too high.
Catching on the bounce.
A little close.
I love this one, even though the ball is missing.
Love the shadow and check out that chest. :)
A little crop and a few tweaks in Photoshop makes it look completely different.
These are just a few, I have lots more; some don't even have Elsa in them. Working with a lag is tough but I had fun trying. I hope this motivates you guys to get out your cell phone or camera. Whether you are using an old digital camera or a cell phone, it takes work to get the shot. The more lag, the more in tuned you have to be to timing and catching that moment.
There's a lot more to getting a great shot than having a great camera.
You don't have to have a professional camera to take great shots. It just takes practice, sometimes lots and lots of practice.
