Boston Red Sox Photography: Tuesday, April 17, 2012 vs. Texas Rangers.

“The field is shown through the rafters at Fenway Park during a game between the Boston Red Sox and the Texas Rangers Tuesday, April 17, 2012.”

“The Fenway Park ‘100 Years’ logo is shown on a security guard’s jacket during a game between the Boston Red Sox and the Texas Rangers Tuesday, April 17, 2012.”

Last night was rough for Red Sox Nation. What started out as a close game quickly took a turn for the worst, ending in an 18-3 rout by what looks to be a very strong Texas Rangers ball club.

So, for a Red Sox photographer whose job is to capture the team and the environment in the most positive light possible, that score made for a long night. Obviously, there was no Red Sox action on the field to shoot, and my usually lively fan photos were anything but that. And how can I blame the fans? It was painful to watch. 

The only option left was to hunt for generic, stock images of the stadium – ones that could be used for any type of publication or in any situation. I was happy with these two.

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Find the security guards who take an interest in photography and who are most willing to help you out, and shoot near them. I’m quickly learning the spots where I can work with a “personal bodyguard” of sorts near me at all times.

  1. As a Dallas resident, I’m a big fan of the Rangers, but I sympathize with the frustration of a game like the one last night. Shooting at a game in Fenway must be something special, no matter what the score.

    Thanks for sharing.
