Take me out to the ballgame!

Going to a ballgame?  Here are a two tips I’ve picked up over the years that apply to little league and major leagues.

1) When photographing a play it means little without the ball.  Make sure you can see the ball in motion or in the possession of a player who can make or break the play.  A blurry ball often works better than a frozen ball because it gives you a sense of the motion.

2) Get photos of the elements of the entire environment at the sporting event.  We often go for the main event, but there are so many stories told at a game that can be told!  Take a look at the kids helping with the field work for one example.

I can go on and on…but I’ll save that for future posts.  Got a five month old girl crying  who needs Daddy to hold her tonight so she can sleep!
