2013 Galena High Baseball vs. Douglas

I’m back posting to the blog! đŸ™‚  Been out to games lately (adding to the galleries…) but just not posting to the blog, I’ve been working on a project for our old time studio in Monterey, CA (Doc Wenzel’s Old Time Portraits) that consumed a lot of time last week… just “implemented” it on Monday this week….

I made the trek up to Galena today to shoot the Galena Douglas game… and just as I figured it was a great game!  This was the second Galena game I’ve been to which ended with a walk off home run to end the game… there’s more to the story though… it’s been the same player in both games…!  This time I got it! đŸ™‚ Go Ben!

SUPER windy & rainy… that’s the beauty of baseball photos, you can’t really tell that, they wear caps! Also with a little overcast the harsh shadows on the faces go away… makes for “better” lighting, even though it was a “yucky” day there’s “better” light so possibly “better” photos…

Here’s some action from the day…
