Pickleball Video: Returning a Very Short Ball

There are times when a ball from your opponent barely makes it over the net. Perhaps it ticks the top of the net and dribbles over. When the ball lands only a foot or so away from the net, this can be a problem for the returning player.

Such a short ball is very hard to return as there is no room for the player to swing and get the ball up and over the net if they hit the ball straight on. There is, however, one very good alternative. Watch the video below to learn a one way to handle this situation.

NOTE – If you can, time your hit so the paddle reaches the ball as it is bouncing up (ascending) so it is not at its lowest point to the ground. The higher the ball, the easier it will be to get it over the net!

Pickleball: Video – Getting Out of Trouble

If you play doubles pickleball on a regular basis, sooner or later you will find that you and your partner are in a defensive posture stuck near the baseline. If this happens, one of the best strategies is to “reset the point.” After all, it is hard to hit a winner when you are pinned near your baseline.

So what is “reseting the point?” Mark Renneson, pickleball coach and owner of Third Shot Sports, explains via the video below:

Remember, the drop shot isn’t an offensive shot. It doesn’t have to be a “winner,” it just needs to give your team time to move forward.

Video: Baby Elephant Needs a Lullaby to Sleep

From the YouTube page:

Faamai wants Lek to sing a lullaby to baby elephant, Thong Ae

While I was meeting with visitors, Faa Mai suddenly intruded our talk with clear intent. She pushed me along out into the field, directing me somewhere and I wondered what it was that she really wanted. Finally FaaMai took me to see the little Thong Ae, whom she wants to adopt as her own. In the end, it sees as if FaaMai wanted me to lullaby her little friend, as she is so fond when i sing a lullaby to her. It is so beautiful to see my little girl who has such a heart of care. I am so proud of this girl ! at Elephant Nature Park.

Video: Can You Accurately Assess Your Skills

Why incompetent people think they’re amazing! – David Dunning

The video below explains how the Dunning-Kruger Effect distorts the ability of some people to accurately assess their skill level in a certain area. As the video explains, one study found that 88% of Americans rated themselves as “above average” drivers. This is mathematically impossible of course.

Watch the video below to understand this effect and how it might alter your abilities to accurately assess your various skill levels.

Pickleball Video: Give Me the Ball!

NOTES FROM THE VIDEO’S Web Page

Seventeen time national champion, Jennifer Lucore, shares her Pickleball Quick Tip that is simple but brilliant! How can you be ready for the ball when you’re waiting at the kitchen line? Watch and listen as this pickleball pro gives all of us some practical advice for being prepared to hit that winning shot! You’ll be amazed what this simple trick can do for your game. It can make you more aware, engaged and focused, and ultimately, it can set you up for hitting the next winner. What is this quick and easy tip? Watch the video to find out!

When you are playing doubles pickleball do you look forward to having the ball hit your way or do you hope the ball doesn’t come in your direction? Jennifer Lucore, national champion, explains why it is important to want the ball.

This doesn’t mean that you should be a ball hawk and go after every ball. What it does mean is that you should be ready for every ball to come your way and with that anticipation, you will be prepared to make your best possible shot. It keeps your head in the point and therefore in the game!

Keeping your paddle up and in the ready position as well as keeping your eye on the ball, will help you be ready when it does come in your direction. Another great hint offered by Sarah Ansboury, is to use your paddle as a pointing device and keep it pointed at the ball when it is on the opponent’s side of the court. In this way, your body has a better chance of being in the ready position to attack the ball if comes in your direction.

Watch the brief video for a further explanation:

I think most people, whether or not they are cat lovers, will laugh at the video below depicting a cat “watching a horror movie.” I don’t know exactly what the cat was looking at, but the pacing, editing and sound effects will bring a chuckle to everyone!

If you are a cat lover, then hands down, you will appreciate this short clip.

Pickleball: Video- Dink Destroyer

Jordan Briones of Prime Time Pickleball demonstrates what he considers a major mistake many people make in their dinking technique. After describing and explaining the issue, he offers tips and a practice exercise to help overcome a habit that may destroy the best approach to successful dinking.

When I watch novices/beginners play pickleball, I see this mistake many times. Another mistake that beginners often make is taking a step backward at the NVZ hoping to “catch a better bounce” of the ball. Learn to take it in the air if you can.

1 – It avoids the ball taking a funny bounce

2 – It keeps you in position

3 – It takes time away from your opponent.

Photography: Videos – Landscape Hints and Ideas

There are many, many videos on the Internet related to almost every aspect of photography ranging from the technical to the artistic and abstract and everything in between. One field of photography in which I have a strong interest is landscape photography and hobbyists can spend days on end watching nothing but videos about landscape photography.

I have seen dozens over the years and I want to highlight the two resources below because I feel they are especially well done and they have worthy ideas that may be new for many.

My TOP 5 best TIPS for composition in Landscape Photography
by Mads Peter Iversen

Mads Peter Iversen offers his most important tips for successful landscape photography. What I liked about this 16:35 video is that Mads not only offers his ideas, but then he demonstrates what he wishes to convey by showing examples. This makes it immensely useful!

Here are his five areas of concentration in the video below:

  • Focal point
  • Leading lines
  • Brightness, contrast and faces
  • Balance
  • Elements within the frame and the need for “breathing room”

Simple IDEAS for CREATIVE outdoor photography
by Nigel Danson

From the YouTube page:

The possibilities in photography are endless. Landscape photography is no different. Whatever the light or location you can get great images. In this video I talk a bit more about getting creative with out of focus elements and intentional camera movement ICM. And preview the ICELAND series coming soon….

See more photography posts HERE and visit Jeff’s Instagram site HERE showcasing a number of landscape photographs.

Vide-Ohs: Driving Home No Texting While Driving

While the beginning of this video may seem funny in a Chaplanesque way, the message is anything but humorous. This is part of the “It Can Wait” promotion to encourage people not to text when it can be harmful to themselves or others. This public service announcement was created by the Western Cape Government, South Africa.

It is short, to the point and powerful!

Texting and walking is difficult enough just watch the video!
