One of my favorite and most popular camera angles is my floor remote positioned under the basket. I prefocus the camera which is tilted on an upward angle with a double A battery taped underneath. I carefully slide through a cut out in the padding and aim it straight out as best I can. It is then taped to the floor just to hold the direction of the camera. It is easily knocked over backward for the protection of players. I have been trying for a particular image of a Cavaliers player being helped up by his teammates directly in front of the remote for years. I thought I had it when Rajon Rondo fell and was helped up by Isaac Okoro, Cedi Osman, Kevin Love, and Big Jay. The camera fell partially backward and changed the composition. I captured this photo with Rajon partially cropped out at the bottom and part of the black protective padding showing at the top of the photo. I think it still works capturing the camaraderie of this Cavs team. What do you think?
