These pitcher pictures are well done Jeff. Shooting from the opposite side of their follow-through is sometimes not real interesting, but these work for me. Nice to see the pitching hand with the ball being grasped. If looks as though you shot from a slightly elevated perspective, whatever the case I think that these are real nice. The catcher on the other hand, he probably would have appreciated that you captured his smile instead of his backside. I like your work Jeff, we are striding forward together.

Nice shots Jeff! I like the pitchers grip shots too. You can tell fastball, circle-change and 3rd looks like curve. But then again, I'm a former baseball coach too :smile:

We'll have to chat when my new sports body comes in :wink:

So no one will be confused, I did delete the catcher's photo, and substituted two more. Are these better?

I still can't tell which pitch is which...but I never coached baseball either.

Thanks for the kind words.

Frank the backstop is on the side of a hill. I have just enough space to shoot beside the backstop, but I'm standing on a hill...so elevated is right. Although I did go stand at 3rd base side (dugout) and 1st base side (dugout) for a few shots.
Thanks for the kind comments. I'm still learning. I've shot baseball less than anything so far.

Thanks Rod. Shooting baseball is new to me. I think this my 3rd game, so I've not exactly got it down to a science.:smile: But I'm having fun and learning.

Good series on these. I tried my first baseball game the other day. Didn't get a keeper that I liked. So I know what you mean. Hey, we'll muddle through this together, but HEY!! ain't it fun just to be able to go out and shoot??

Hey Jeff,

These are great images. You are getting some really good results. I really like the angles on the pitchers. Keep them coming!

I have fun shooting. I'm disappointed at a lot of my images, but I find a few keepers now and then. I'm just glad I'm not using film. I'd hate to have 300 shots, and only 10 keepers with film. $$$$$$...:eek:

Thanks Tyrone, I appreciate the encouragement. I keep trying to improve, but I don't put so much pressure on myself as not to enjoy the process. I just try to have fun, and learn what I can.
