jump shot: take 1

I try to make weekends a blog-free zone, but I just couldn't help myself. Keep in mind, this is take 1. I had about a minute to get this shot last night and it's not perfect. I didn't have a chance to fiddle with my settings, so it's a bit of a semi-silhouette.

I could make the silhouette a bit darker, but I couldn't decide if it looked like a jump shot or like he had a broken leg. It's hard to see what position his body is in, but this kid is so stinkin' cool I can't stand it. I wish I was this cool when I was eight, don't you?

Collin is off to church camp with his dad until next week, so hopefully I'll get to try again when he gets home. I need to shoot from a different angle so his head doesn't blend in with the backboard when I do a silhouette. But I thought it was pretty fun, so I wanted to share.

Hope you're having a great weekend! :-)

Very cool! I like the first one best because you can see more of your son. This looks like he is in the sky!

AWESOME shot! Now that's some air! ...and yeah, I see how it would look very weird as a silhouette.

by the way...I totally stole your colored pencil idea...they were so pretty, I wanted some of my own! I think I'll get mine posted sometime next week.
