When You Take the Art Photographer to a Baseball Game

Went to game the other night, and after practicing my sports shots I decided to experiment a bit. Decided I rather like the results.

Thoughts/commentary/reactions encouraged.

G'day mate

Gary - these are excellent .... love 'em

Far too many of us 'togs seem to be locked into the "it must be frozen / sharp / no-noise" etc image mould and yet there is so much we can achieve / create via a bit of imagination. [we had another one the other day with 'dancing']

I tried the same recently with a Aussie night rugby game - and my results, tho showing blur, were not as good as yours

10/10 all round

Great DR and action blur… very cool Gary!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

REVISITED

I use a similar approach with tennis players for the local club
and I used a tripod so only the player showed movement in
the daylight. At night, more shots were taken with flash and
rear curtain… spectacular!

This is a great piece of artwork! Definitely would stand out among thousands of photos that probably a newspaper editor has to go through. It's also easy to see why the third shot are people's favourite. It looks like an animation trope.
