thought i'd start a new thread since the pics were so buried...

you boys are always so nice here! As it turned out, my nephew didn't pitch (those rules about innings per wk) BUT, at least I got to work on my skills before Saturday's game where he'll likely get some innings in.

Shooting thru the fence like k1par suggested was afascinating concept and tricky at times. There is a big gray opaque cover across the entire backstop fence (???). So I couldn't shoot the pitchers mound head on. by the time I got there parents were lined up in camping chairs on the first baseline side of home plate soI had to set up about 30degrees southwest of home plate. Which prevented me from getting face angles on right hand batters. I'll have to go early next time.

ANYWAYAll in all I learned a lot and look fwd to putting the curve (no pun intended) to use this sat with y'all's help!

best resulton the release...the5fps captured nice range of motion on the windup, but when it came to the release the first image with a ball in it was usually in a tall arc far away from the pitcher. suggestions?

Hey - I really like the first pic - usually I'm a stickler for keeping things level, but the angle works great with this one.

Wish I could give advice on how to keep the ball in the frame but it's just not likely to happen at this level. Catching the release point is always a great catch though.

Looks like your taking to this sports shooting just fine. It helps that you've already developed a good eye for composition. Great job!!
