It seems difficult to keep a baseball thread in the front page, so maybe if we're less granular on the level? I've been photographing my kid and his friends for about 17 years (they're currently at Juco, D1 and Pro ball levels - blessed it worked out that way). I'm always looking for new ways and angles to shoot baseball - suggestions and ideas are much welcomed. Play Ball!!!

Enjoying the nice photos, helping to pass the time. Our first high school game, will be March 17th, the last two years it has been snowing for our first game, brrr. Plan to attend many games to shoot my Senior Grandson and his teammates. If he can stay healthy my grandson has a shot at breaking some school records and it sure would be nice to capture these moments and they be good enough to share here in this thread. March and first part of April here can be overcast and low light even on good days so it can be a challenge for me.
Looking forward to more pics from the South!

I'm in awe at the quality of some sports photographers here. I started this as a way to keep my mouth shut while my son played and it turned into my favorite hobby. Here's my kid through the years (t-ball to A Ball): Trevor (external link). For me, probably the biggest improvement in shooting baseball was getting lower (and better glass) - I use a small 3 leg folding chair called a walkstool (it's really nice and $80, these work just as well - 3 leg stool (external link))

Photographing HS baseball is a blast and the kids and parents really appreciate the images (I've always given them away). Enjoy the season! -Bill

Bill that's great to have all those memories captured. I had two grandsons that got to play varsity football and baseball together, a senior and a freshman. I'm sure my interest in photographing them kept me from being ejected from the game on more than one occasion,:-)
I'm also impressed by the photos shared by many on the forum and have learned a great deal. At my home games and a few others I'm allowed on the field close to the dugouts, getting low and having faster glass has helped me improve. Now I need to focus and quit missing the best plays, tend to catch myself watching the close calls and not pressing the shutter button.
I like sharing my photos to the athletes and their parents. The parents appreciate seeing pics of their children at any age and at anytime. I try to get a few very good pics of the Seniors playing throughout the season and then hand them printed enlargements on graduation day as a gift. It is on that day that they too really appreciate the photos as they realize they will be going separate ways and all those years of playing ball and growing up together as teammates has now came to an end.

Too funny, I also have a problem catching the on field action due to watching the play... I had a tradition of using Photoshop to create fake ESPN magazine covers - I'd use Costco and print two 11 X 14 prints for each seniors. At the baseball banquet, I'd give them sharpies and they'd have their teammates sign one copy - the parent's would hang on to the second copy. I'd do this with the younger teams for end of season, as well. I keep some of the Photoshop stuff here (https://flic.kr/s/aHsj​ZraXwM (external link)). Let me know if you'd like any of the ESPN art work - it was once available online.
