    even it is at 1/4000s, it will still have motion blur.

    samples

    so the answer is very simple.

    Or you can have the pitcher just hold the pose in the background and someone else (outside the frame view):
    - drop the ball from the top, or
    - throw the ball from the ground up (more likely scenario)
    Shoot at 1/1000-4000 wide open at 10fps.

    the guy behind looks oddly fake to me!

    shall try to replicate tat one wiht a creation of my own later;D u will laugh

    * tried and failed badly. i realised using a gundam + its lightsaber as a model is a bad thing. the strings turn out too obvious.

    in comparision the pic has quite big subjects. if i used string it would be well hidden. ~~

    **and then again i read the other ppl post. realised it is possible. ~~ see the "other thread" part

    To me, it seems like a tele lens of at least 500mm and it's in a near distance.
    But the "bokeh" seems kinda fake..
