A Baseball Shot, Strobist Style


First off, let me credit David over at www.strobist.com for the lighting ideas (homemade snoot anyone?) that allowed me to capture this shot yesterday. A little about the setup - Nikon D200 with my SB-600 off-camera, fired via Nikon's CLS. The duct tape looking thingy is my homemade cereal box snoot, which allows me to direct the flash output more precisely than otherwise. I zoomed the flash to 85mm and covered with is 1/2 CTO (color temperature orange) gel which gave me the nice warm color on the baseball. There's not much else to it, post-processing was minimal, just a touch of high pass sharpening and the image was complete.
