Photography Lesson 11: FAST!

My favorite thing to try and catch with my camera is baseball. My son has played for years and one of the reasons I ultimately got the DSLR was so I could take better shots of him playing baseball.  Baseball season starts the end of March/first of April so we have already been playing this year. Here are a few of my favorites.
One of my favorites, I call this photo Relief Pitcher.
ISO 1600, 1/500, f:8.0
ISO 1600, 1/2500, f:11.0
I love that you can see the seams of the baseball and how twisted his body is to get the power up.

okay, this one is not my son, but I love first base action!
ISO: 160, 1/2500, f:11.0

Again, another player who is not my son, but more first base action. I love that you can see the seams on that baseball as it is whizzing into to first base. No chance this one was a close call.
ISO: 1600, 1/3200, f:8.0


  1. Wow! You caught the ball in midair. Awesome shots! Love the one where your son is getting ready to throw the ball-there's a lot of intensity in that photo!

  2. Thank you for taking the time to post a comment!
