Well, it was sunny and windy day for shooting at Redbird Stadium in Bloomington, Illinois, but what a great time shooting with Ty and Rod. We fought the blown highlights and dusty conditions, but it was well worth the enjoyment that we had shooting together, then enjoying a nice dinner afterward. Two nicer guys you won't find anywhere. Well, here's a few images from this afternoon, all were shot with a D2H, 300mm f/2.8 VR and 1.4x TC on a monopod.

Wow Frank...
Four outstanding shots! The pitcher shot in #1 is just about the best I've seen. Good colors, well exposed, sharp..nice bokeh...wow.
The catcher "sportrait" is superb. I'm sort of partial to catcher photos anyhow. (my daughter plays catcher) :smile:
Gosh I hate to sound like a broken record, but there's not anything negative to say about these photos. Just really good photos! Outstanding!
You and Rod are putting on a clinic today!

Thanks so much Jeff. The catcher is a 2005 graduate of our high school and is having a great college career. I wanted to get some shots of him so we can display them in a case at school to bolster our athletic pride. I truly believe that Kevin will make to the Big Leagues, the kid is a stud.

Hey Frank,

Dude, you totally rock at this. Great stuff you got there! I give up, I'm selling all my gear and buying my wife a scooter. :biggrin: Thanks for a great time this afternoon. Looking forward to the next time when I can just sit on the sidelines and watch you and Rod kill em!

Excellent all you guys came back with incredible shots sure would liked to have shoot and hung out after wards with you guys
Mike, the three of us were a gritty mess after the game, but we really connected well and enjoyed our shooting experience. I hope that we can do it again sometime soon...and you are always invited. Doesn't your company need to send you here for business?
