My daughter wanted to play hopscotch in the garden at the weekend. As I was chalking it out I started thinking about actions shots. Then I realised they would be hopping with the sun at their backs. Then I got really into thinking how to make the shot work. I ended up with this... (For avoidance of doubt, this is my son not my daughter ) I was quite happy with this. Not entirely happy technically but it certainly captured the action. I have got a couple where the kids are completely in the air. They had more technical issues though. As you can probably tell, the light is camera right, a shoot through umbrella on a stand. Flash at 1/2 power to fight the sunshine. My technical issue was the shutter speed. This is shot at 1/200th and you can see there is movement blur. I haven't got the exif data to hand but it was f/8 or f/11 I think, ISO 100 and manual focus. The need to not exceed sync speed made it difficult to stop the motion and to kill the ambient light. But I couldn't use high speed sync as it would not have generated enough light. So does anyone have any ideas how I could be all this? So far everything I can think of requires kit I don't have!
