It feels great to get back to blogging baseball! I shot my first game since getting home from Europe, and I caught a good, busy, exciting night to break me in.
There were several story lines from the game – celebs in the house beforehand, Kevin Youkilis returning to Fenway as a Chicago White Sox, a beautiful summer night falling over Fenway Park, and some late inning home run heroics from Adrian Gonzales to seal a Red Sox win – and I was proud of myself for getting some good shots from each of them.
This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Such is the beauty of roaming throughout the stadium during the game. I’m totally mobile, and can focus on several things at the same time if I choose to. That’s something one doesn’t get from shooting in the pits the entire game.
Here’s a few from this year’s Memorial Day ceremonies and action at Fenway Park. We caught a beautiful day for baseball, and the Red Sox pulled through with a solid win.
When you shoot the same event every day, it’s important to constantly challenge yourself to find different ways to make it look interesting. I tried to mix things up a bit yesterday. This game’s “Thing I Learned”: I’m settling in to shooting from the seats more and more as the season goes on. There’s somer really interesting frames to be made. I like the juxtaposition of game action and fan activity. I think I’m going to try to explore that more going forward.
