A few shots of Jacoby Ellsbury on his first rehab start in AAA Pawtucket tonight, 7/7/2012...

I'm tired of seeing his dunkin donuts commercials all the time knowing he has played so little for the red sox in the past 2 years. :(

Yea, this is true. Unfortunately he probably taped those when he was actually playing. He had a pretty crappy night tonight, 0-3 or 0-4, not sure. Fouled out to third base with bases loaded.

I think those commercials are only local to this area, but I could be wrong. One is with Bobby V. going over signs that have to do with the ice coffee flavor. The other is with Ellsbury doing all the groundwork at Fenway because he gets fueled by ice coffee. Corny but effective I guess...

One of the funniest ones was when Curt Schilling first came to the Sox, they had a commercial about some of the players teaching him the New England slang. Gotta be from here to appreciate that one.

Few things...

1) Last one is a delete, first is eh, second crop tighter on him, Koyie adds nothing.

2) You don't care people rip these off? Full size on flickr, goodbye, for sale on eBay in no time - flickr is the most ripped off site there is out there besides maybe Getty. Have Jacoby's name here so just makes it that much easier for someone to steal them.

3) You need to take the sales option off your smugmug or MLB/MiLB will not be happy, it violates their rules and they do not take kindly to folks trying to go around them and sell, even if you think nobody will buy, doesn't matter and they are cracking down big time right now.

3) Your free is killing me (external link)

Why a delete? Please let me know why. I like the first, but your opinion. On the second, if I cropped tighter I'd loose most of the top or bottom. Would that be ok, or do I crop in a weird rectangle?

2) You don't care people rip these off? Full size on flickr, goodbye, for sale on eBay in no time - flickr is the most ripped off site there is out there besides maybe Getty. Have Jacoby's name here so just makes it that much easier for someone to steal them.

I changed the size on Flickr.

3) You need to take the sales option off your smugmug or MLB/MiLB will not be happy, it violates their rules and they do not take kindly to folks trying to go around them and sell, even if you think nobody will buy, doesn't matter and they are cracking down big time right now.

I knew about not selling images. I am still pretty new to SmugMug, and I thought I had changed it globally on the top-level gallery, but apparently that was not the case. It is fixed and will make sure I set it right in the future.

Actually, this on should be "4", but who's counting... Here's my take: I do want to be a paid photographer, and I love to shoot anyway. But if I were to try to get hired, wouldn't the future employer want to see my work? Do you think he'd take my word for it? I need to start somewhere, so I sorta have no choice. I know that for some this isn't the right way, but if you had a better option in mind I'd love to hear it.

Also, please don't think my reply is sarcastic, because it's not. I REALLY want to learn the Do's/Don'ts of sports photography. That's why I asked about the cropping and why you would delete. How can I learn if I don't know why? So please criticize all day, but let me know WHY so I can get better.

It's the ultimate catch 22 for a photographer. Professionals don't want non-professionals to work for free because 1.) it takes work from them, and 2.) photographers in general want other photographers to be paid for their work because they know what it takes to be good in this field.

The problem is that to get paid work, you need to show a potential employer some of your previous work... but you can't get previous work unless you get paid to do so! aaaahhhh

I like your shots and Jacoby. Its too bad about his injuries because when he's out there doing his thing he is a big plus to the team. His speed on the field and running bases is awesome.

I totally agree. And I NEVER want to deny a paid photographer a job, that's not my goal. But I do eventually want to get paid. I'm just trying to do what I can.

It's probably the chopper. Usually choppers result in an out so it doesn't end up being a good picture and no one (including the player) is interested in these types of shots.

In my opinion it's a nice picture though, great job on these.

He did have a crappy night, 0-4. He even fouled out to third with bases loaded.

But see, this info is what I need to know. Guess I should have known about the chopper. I have better shots of others that have better ball position. But when a player like Ellsbury is down on the farm sometimes you have to take what you can get I guess.
