Ravens’ Harbaugh on Gaither, Heap, McClain — Baltimore Sun Video

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here is some footage I edited from a press conference at Ravens Training Camp on Monday. Head Coach John Harbaugh addressed concerns about several players who have already been plagued by injuries this year.

This is one in a series of many posts and updates leading up to the regular season. I’ll post my reflections on covering the Baltimore Ravens as the end of training camp approaches.

Ravens meet Manchester City soccer — Baltimore Sun Video

Members of the Manchester City Football Club visited Baltimore Ravens training camp on Friday to throw and kick some footballs and soccer balls.

The Manchester players didn’t see to have any idea how American football works, but at the same time they seemed comfortable handling the football itself. They had absolutely no problems making field goals from 30 plus yards out.

It was also amusing to see some of the “small” Manchester City strikers dwarfed by Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and company.

Ravens’ Gaither: ‘I would never be disgruntled and try to cause any problems…’ — Baltimore Sun Video

Baltimore Ravens’ offensive tackle, Jared Gaither, discussed his role on the team today after early morning practice.

Hours later, during the afternoon practice, he was carted off the field with a back injury. We’re lucky to have gotten some sound bites from him before that happened.

We had to lighten this video a bit during the editing process. Whenever possible, I need to be sure to set up our interviews so that they aren’t backlit. This is something to keep in mind for the rest of training camp!

Here’s a locker room interview with Baltimore Ravens’ rookie tight end, Ed Dickson.

It’s very brief, but I always try to find something to build on, no matter how small the assignment.

In this case, I realized that I didn’t stake out my camera spot quickly enough. I was behind a circle of reporters when I shot this. That’s why you see some other faces occasionally popping into view.

It’s important to claim a good spot within the huddle of reporters and camera people.

Lesson learned!
