Very soon I will be shooting my first MLB game as a credentialed photog. Just had some questions on the do's and don'ts. First off is the media room. In general are most professionals friendly and do they talk with each other? How will they react to a new guy like myself? Should I try and introduce myself at first or just blend in and observe to start?
Now for the photo wells...What are some do's and don'ts of the wells? Talking normal? or do most prefer to not be disturbed while working? Also on switching photo wells, only inbetween innings right?
Also, is interacting with the players a bad idea? Do they even acknowledge photogs?
I know I'll have more questions as the time gets closer...Just trying to not look like an idiot out there. So any advice is appreciated. Also I would love to hear about your first experiences as a credentialed photographer.
