Today was a beautiful day at Camden Yards. The nice blue sky lent itself perfectly as a backdrop. One thing I learned early on is to pay attention to your backdrop. When combining this with a great subject matter, a good image can be made.
As I was shooting near the away dugout, I noticed that when players were walking back the sun was illuminating only a part of their torso.
I prepared one camera exposing for the sky and waited. After Jarrod Saltalamacchia was struck out he walked back with his head down blocking the light on his face, but allowing his jersey to stand out.
Normally I am attracted to images that show more emotion on the subject's face, but this time I found that this image just worked. His posture was able to say everything.
I will be back out shooting the O's tomorrow.
Until next time, take care!
