You can view these images on my blog: Houston Sports Photography (external link)

All shot with my 400mm 2.8L IS on my 5D Mark III. All from the outside first base dugout.


The kid didn't hold onto it.

Your typical home run trot shot. [The more dejected the pitcher looks, the better. Talking to the catcher will work.]

I really like the extended arm with the panoramic crop.

Caught stealing

RBI Single

I think I would have gotten this right when he caught it, but the first baseman blocked my shot.

He golfed this into the stands. Two run home run.

Really long game, so I played with the multiple exposures.

I should get like a 10% bonus when it goes an extra inning.

Thomas:

Nice work. I'm not keen on the bat on ball shots as you can't see the batters face, but that's just me...others think BOB shots are way cool. I'd also try the last one from the other side so you get the pitcher's face in all three exposures. Nice attempt though. First shot is great....I love to see faces of the fans on plays like this.

I totally agree that I want the eyes in every picture if possible. But it isn't always possible. If a batter drops his head like that, there is pretty much no recourse. Both hits were really critical hits in the game. The second one tied the game in the eighth and sent it to extra innings.

I usually like to get pitchers from their respective side, but the other team has a lefty in and this guy was a reliever. Can't move during play.

Your multiple exposure image was all done in camera correct? If so, how did you create that?

Yes. 5D Mark III has a multiple exposure mode. I don't particularly like it, but play around with it from time to time. I just started it, and slide the camera right while the pitcher went left. Note that you can see multiple instances of the 3rd base coach's legs on the left and third base in the center.

Ah. I thought it was done in bulb with a piece of something to block the front of the lens.

Is that a 5dmk3 thing only for Canon?

I believe you can do it with a Nikon D3 or D4. Maybe a D700 or D800. Not really sure.

I'm with you. Photos are nice, but I'm not a huge fan of BoB either. I prefer the shot when the swing has come around and their head is up following the ball. I like the multiple though, have to try that out.

The old school way of doing it is by putting it on a long shutter and waving a piece of cardboard or something else similar in front of the lens right?

How does it work when you put it in that mode? You pan for the 3 shots and it just clicks on a timer?

excellent set!

it's a shame that it's so hard to get the eyes visible when batter take swings from most reasonably allowed shooting positions, but that said I still love bat on ball type shots and give the often missing faces a pass, if you are so lucky as get ball on bat and clear face then that is really cool
