Baltimore Orioles Photography: Sunday, June 26, 2011 vs. Cincinnati Reds
The O’s took the rubber game of their interleague series against the Reds yesterday.
You never know what kind of conditions you’ll get for a day game. Yesterday, when the sun was out, shots looked blown out, and when the sun was behind the clouds, everything looked dry and flat. This inconsistent lighting called for tedious and repetitive exposure adjustments throughout the game.
Regardless, I was happy to update my portfolio with some crisp frames of the players the Orioles have acquired since I was last there.
This game’s “Thing I Learned:” Using the camera’s microphone while shooting to record game information accompanying important images saves considerable time and energy when captioning later on. I don’t shoot for a wire, so there’s no urgent deadline, but I’m going to start recording regardless. Should a time come when I actually need to, I’ll be ready.
