So Near...

Revisiting a shot done a while back, with the camera lens low to the kitchen table and tossing Cookies at the boys to get them to jump just high enough to be seen.

This is a fiddly shot, as I need a good Cookie toss with my right hand - with good location plus low enough so the boys stay in frame yet high enough to not hit the table - while at the same time triggering the camera at just the right moment with my left.

Zachary wants everybody to know that I am a terrible pitcher.

So Near...
Zachary: "Cookies!"

So Near...
Henry: "See 'em!"

So Near...
Zachary: "Reeeeeeach"

So Near...
Zachary: "Yikes!"

So Near...
Henry: "Tired of jumping, Momma.."

So Near...
Zachary: "Grow tongue, grow!"

I will say it was MUCH easier this time, as the boys knew what was coming.

So near and yet so far.

At least no hats were required.

Yes, of course the boys got to eat some of the Cookies when we were done.

I occasionally use myself as a test subject, particular with the more unusually setups.

In this case, I wanted to make sure the flash (off camera to the right) was going to hit the dogs/table in the right spot and at the right angle.

No point in subjecting the boys to senseless flashing while I try to get things lined up right.

Good grief, if my boys had to try to catch one of my throws, they'd never be in the frame! Hahaha!
