2015 Photo Challenge 2 of 52


With baseball season only a few weeks away I thought it would be a good time to take this photo. I went to the University Co-Op this weekend to get the baseball for about $7. I really wanted to make it feel like the ball was in the air rather than rest it on something and crop part of the ball out so I drilled a hole in the back large enough for a coat hanger and then bent it in the shape of a Z so I could clamp the bottom part to a table. I never envisioned the smoke orange but when playing around with it in post I found it much more dramatic.

Photo details:
ISO: 160
Shutter Speed: 1/320
Aperture: f/3.5
