I haven't seen a 2015 college softball thread so I'm starting one.

These images are incredible. I like mixing in images that are not action as well so it will help tell the story a little more.

A few from Monday night. The game was moved from Cowgirl Diamond to a local high school field that had artificial turf because of rain and wet grounds. Shooting in the lighting (or lack of it) at the field was a challenge. Both while shooting and then in post processing.

Finally made another softball game. It was a day game so the lighting was a lot better than last time out.

A few shots from the game.

Good catch for both the photographer and player on the last shot ...

A few softball photos from last night.

The last one needs an explanation. The girl in the photo was a relief pitcher who came into the game in 6th and got out of a big jam. Pitching to start the 7th, the first batter hit a screaming line drive up the middle that hit the pitcher right in the center of the forehead. It hit her so hard it rebounded in the air over the catcher's head into the backstop. That was one tough young lady because she didn't go down with a blow that would have put most people down for the count. She passed the concussion tests but was taken out of the game as a precaution. I heard from the coach that she passed the concussion test again in the morning and was doing well. The photo is over her coming off the field to the dugout. You can see a softball sized diameter knot on the center of her forehead.

My favorites from tonight's game: #12 Tennessee vs. #21 Kentucky. A roller coaster of a game... it came down to a walk-off 2 run HR for us to win it. These were shot with a 1DX and 300/2.8 or 16-35/2.8.

Wow ... all fantastic shots.

@McNeese72 ... thanks for posting camera data above photo.
Surely helps a newbie like me to learn.

@abruckse ... How'd you get the "on the mound" image ?

@Mailmanc03 ... How'd you get the "batter, catcher, ump" with view point from the pitcher's mound ?

@ all ... are any of these shot through a screen/fence/etc... ?
I'm struggling with getting a clear shot without having the fence show in the image.

I got that by shooting from the top of our press box. You can see the little porched in area in my last pano shot. I love shooting from higher angles in all sports, and I highly recommend people experiment with different angles like that when and if they are made available. I shot the WCWS a few years ago, and same of my favorite shots were from the roof of the press box, though I basically had to sign my life away to get up there.

As far as shooting through a fence, shoot wide open, or close to it, and get up close to the fence as possible and as centered as possible. The longer the glass, the easier this is to do. Odd angles and changes in light can confuse AF still sometimes.
