Baltimore Orioles Photography: Saturday, August 13, 2011 vs. Detroit Tigers

"Baltimore Orioles third baseman Josh Bell throws to first after fielding a ground ball in the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Detroit Tigers Saturday, August 13, 2011."

This game was just about as slow as the Hall of Fame ceremony before it. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned:” Ummmmmm, hmmm…

Baltimore Orioles Photography: Monday, August 8, 2011 vs. Chicago White Sox

"A camera operator films an at-bat in the second inning of a baseball game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox Monday, August 8, 2011 in Baltimore."

"Baltimore Orioles third baseman Josh Bell dives for a ground ball in the fifth inning of a baseball game against the Chicago White Sox Monday, August 8, 2011 in Baltimore."

"Chicago White Sox designated hitter Paul Konerko and shortstop Alexei Ramirez wait in the on deck circle in the sixth inning of a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, August 8, 2011 in Baltimore."

"Baltimore Orioles shortstop Robert Andino reaches for a ground ball in the sixth inning of a baseball game against the Chicago White Sox Monday, August 8, 2011 in Baltimore."

Although it was close throughout, the Orioles dropped the first of a four game series against the Chicago White Sox. 

Some games, it’s easier to know what to focus on than others. For example, everyone was making contact on Monday night, so the infielders were busy making plays all game. I only came away with a handful of shots of batters. 

I also fooled around with the wide angle a bit. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned:” The more action there is, the better I am at shooting. I really enjoy when it seems like there’s a play almost every pitch. It’s during those times when I find myself shooting with a nice rhythm.  

Baltimore Orioles Photography: Sunday, August 7, 2011 vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Yesterday was a rather uneventful game to wrap up a three game series against the Blue Jays, save two of the longest home runs I’ve ever seen hit by Orioles’ now first baseman Mark Reynolds. 

Here are two frames that I liked. Jose Bautista has quite a beard. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned:” I shot a few more innings of high definition video, so I built off of the footage I shot on Friday.
