Default WaPo sports pic

There was an interesting photo on the sports page of the Washington Post that garnered enough interest that the photographer wrote a brief article explaining how he took the photo. You can read about it here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...l?hpid=artslot

FWIW

Interesting technique to achieve a stunning image. I still don't follow how he kept the pitcher's head from displaying the motion as a result of zooming

I think Strasberg's head was moving at the same rate as the Photog was rotating the lens.

What the photog didn't say was how many times he tried that shot and got garbage.
