  1. Well like the title says, MA State Championships in Worcester, MA. The games started a day later than planned due to torential downpours yesterday. Was a little tough as I had the sun towards me as I was covering from the 3rd base side and the guy I was working with was on the 1st. Here are a few shots from the 2 games from today. Will be shooting 2 more tomorrow.

    Enjoy!

  2. Peak action in each shot, nice work, that light in the last few looks really nice but must have been a challenge to handle. Were you shooting manually? Like the illusion of transparent pants on the pitcher.
     
  3. Nice series, Geoff!

    I know what you mean about the sun. Every game I've shot this season, including weekend games seems to start at 5 or 6 PM. By that time the sun is getting low, and shooting locations take a hit. The past two games every right handed batter has been backlit by the sun coming over his shoulders. I can get about two innings in before it becomes nearly impossible to get a good shot. Last night I focused mostly on pitchers and defensive plays.
     
  4. Very nice Geoff, another screwy field placement, eh?

    Geoff, you did very well for the cards you were dealt
     
  6. I think you caught the action nicely. Placement is always an issue but it looks like you did a good job compensating. and I love the expression on what looks to be the first baseman on that ground ball ! Here it comes! Lol

    Geoff, great job as always. Are you an Active D-lighting guy?
     
  11. Tim, that was the first thing I turned off when I got the D300. I prefer to try to get it right in camera and if not do some subtle tweaks in PS or Lightroom.
