Baseball – First Try
It’s one of those games I have never shot, have always wanted to try but have never had the opportunity to. So when I got a call from Warren at SMP Images, asking me if I wanted to come along and shoot some of the action, I jumped at the opportunity. So off I headed to Altona Baseball stadium. First thing I noticed is without a 400mm lens, there really isn’t much you can do to get good tight action shots. I hadn’t bothered to bring one on the day, as I was only going for a look, so I tried for some artistic shots.
Decided next to try an elevated position, I headed up to the top corner of the stand to try for something more creative. The Pitcher was casting a nice long shadow, so I got some shots from that.
