Prequel to the Sequel

a great day for a baseball game

Posted in Editorial, Sports by brmeyer3 on 05/09/2009

Today was my first day shooting baseball. Im a huge fan of baseball, and i realize its a slow paced, relaxed sport. But its god awful slow and boring when shooting it. It was the first time i felt limited with my 5d2 and 200mm, i gotta invest in a 300 f/4 or a tcon 1.4x at somepoint for this camera. The whole time, i was trying the shots where just the ball was in focus, which is the first picture. The rest are of us doing bad, because we lost.

    Can you pay me back for the camera before you “invest” in other lenses.

    haha I just finished watching all the 2005 student portfolio reviews, nice ball only in focus photo (Chris Detrick) — is that on a warm-up mound?
