Boston Red Sox Photos: Monday, August 29, 2016 vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

Here are photos from the beginning of another series at Fenway. There was some nice light early on, so I roamed the park a little bit to shoot some features. It’s been a little while since I’ve done that, so it felt good to see some different things.

Not a ton of action to shoot in this game. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price went the distance, allowing just five hits against the Red Sox over nine innings. 

These are a few of the better ones from the night.

It’s really great to be back at Fenway Park after several weeks away from baseball. Being away always makes me realize how much I love the game and everything involved with it.

Including the heat, which was certainly there to welcome me back last night. With temperatures reaching near 100 degrees, it made for a hot one roaming around the park. I wanted to focus my shooting on weather related pictures. Despite the humidity, there was some really nice light which I tried to work with, particularly early on in the game.

Sunday was exactly what all of us at Fenway Park needed: A beautiful, sunny day, a stadium full of happy families celebrating Mother’s Day together, and and old-fashioned 12 to 1 beatdown by the Red Sox. It lifted everyone’s spirits.

It’s amazing how much of a difference good weather has on one’s work during the game, or at least on mine. I’m always enthusiastic about my work, but it gets taken to a different level on days like Sunday. 

Being patient while shooting is a perfect example. I found myself really slowing down all day, and doing much more waiting than actual shooting. That brings me to this game’s “Thing I Learned:” I’m really proud of the final shot here of the mother and son in front of the Green Monster. I sat there for about twenty minutes, just waiting for that some tiny moment to happen, and I got one. I should do that more often. It’s a good exercise in patience and would likely lead to better pictures.

Finally, a bit of nice weather in Boston. I felt like I hadn’t seen the sun in about three weeks before it finally came out for Friday’s game

This sunset didn’t turn out to be as great as I thought it would as the game started, but there will be plenty more to come as we head into the summer months.

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: As the light continues to get better as the season goes on, it’ll be smart to stay outside and roam the park for the first few innings, rather than going inside immediately after the pre-game ceremonies to print those photos. Fenway Park will look too good to be sitting inside during that time.
