The first thing I noticed about photography was that no matter what you were shooting one common theme was omnipresent. Waiting. This is no different in baseball, I know you are all so shocked, baseball and waiting? Crazy right?
In-between innings normally leads to lovely small talk with adjacent photographers and getting your gear ready for the next inning. Well, being too distracted by everything going on around me I normally just end up making more pictures.
Most of the time, fans or players interacting are my go to subject, but other times I like to focus in on the grounds crew. Most images of the grounds crew show them rushing a tarp across the field in the rain, but they do quite a bit more.
By playing with a combination of good lighting and lucky timing I was able to make an image that for lack of better words made one of the crew members look like a standard "bad ass."
These type of images are always a good relief from the normal game action that I am surrounded by on a daily basis. If you haven't noticed yet, I am making a very concise effort to stay away from posting images of game action.
It seems like recently the underwhelming influx of action photos have caused me to look for different pictures to make. This has been a great exercise for my photography but I feel like you guys may be seeing a good action photo coming soon.
Until next time, take care!
