I recently had the chance to get my first taste of baseball photography - little league style. Those kids are surprisingly competitive, and the parents even more competitive! I had to shoot the majority of the game through a chain link fence, but it was still a blast! C&C is welcome as always.

Excellent! Love the tight shots and that you got low for a great perspective. Well done.

Post more of the next game.

There is no better use for good photographic gear than taking pictures of kids playing ball. The younger the better! Gotta love it.

GREAT job; especially for a first time thing! I'd normally nikpick the eyes not being captured at any point in #6, but everything lines up so well (including the dust puff) that it just works.

Dealing with the fence is the hardest part. Almost.

Very very nice! I love your knack for perspectives, framing, motion blur, timing, etc.. etc..

Keep up the great work!
