How to Photograph A Perfect Game – THE PICTURE is What Matters

How to Photograph A Perfect Game - THE PICTURE is What Matters

Watching White Sox pitcher Philip Humber nail down the last out to record only the 21st perfect game in Major League Baseball history (on TV I have to say, I was not on this road trip) naturally brought back memories of covering Mark Buehrle’s perfect game back on July 23, 2009.  Immediately, I went to […]

Back in the Swing of Things

Back in the Swing of Things

I’m back!  After taking off initially for the All-Star break, I stepped away from the diamond and enjoyed some additional rest and relaxation as the White Sox began the second half of the 2011 campaign on the road.  It was time for my annual mid-summer mind flush, if you will.  Last year, my escape was […]

Risk versus Reward

Risk versus Reward

To say I get bored shooting baseball from the same old photo positions is an understatement.  In Chicago, this means setting up in either the outside first or third photo boxes.  Yawn.  Sure, you can play it safe and shoot from first and play the percentages in order to make the standard fail safe play […]

Making Great Baseball Photos-On Some Days, Everything Works

As the White Sox team photographer, one of my most important responsibilities is taking the annual team photo.  Since there are hours of preparation involved for what turns out to amount to mere minutes of actual shooting time, I thought I’d share my set-up and lighting techniques for those photographers considering taking on the task […]

Lens Choices-The Long and Short of it

Lens Choices-The Long and Short of it

When it comes to lens choices, sports photography offers a seemingly endless selection of glass to choose from.  The fun part about that choice is there is no wrong choice.  But there are times when I can’t make up my mind which lens to choose.  Rather than angst over making a decision, I make a […]

The Moment

The Moment

When people think of sports photography, usually the first thing that comes to mind are great “action” images. And don’t get me wrong, making great action images is a very important part of what any successful sports photographer strives to achieve.  But personally, I enjoy making a powerful sports image that derives its strength from […]
