p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Baseball Shot (Fog)


Haven't posted in a while, but I figured the FM sports shooters would appreciate something a little different.

We've all seen baseball photos where dust gets kicked up or blows through the scene, creating interesting backgrounds, but I've never seen this element come into play: fog.

Tech specs:
Canon EOS-1D Mark II N + Canon 400mm f/2.8L IS
1/400 @ f/2.8; ISO 3200

Thanks for looking,

- Caleb

EDIT: Disclamer: Keep in mind that this has been edited a bit more than I would normally do for any photojournalism. Besides denoising, cropping and slight levels and exposure correction, I digitally enhanced the effect of the breath condensation.

Looking at the image, I am assuming this player IS the outfielder. If that is the case, there is plenty of light in the outfield and it drops off well beyond that.

Skwirnmn:

The wall in center field is colored black, so between the light fall off and the wall, it creates a sweet backdrop. One of the reasons I got the 1DmkIIn is that despite being from around the same release time as the 30D I had been using, it looked a little better at ISO 3200.

BillyHurst:
You are correct, this is the outfielder (the center fielder to be presice). I have a shot of the of an infielder with the fog in the background, but it wasn't quite the same effect.

kylehess10 & kevin s:
Thanks guys.

Well, thank God, a sports photo that does not involve action. You know, the best kinds of photos? Excellent image, well done.

Thanks Russ and Jeff. You're welcome too.

Eric: Well I do like action, but 1/400 and ISO 3200 with lights that cycle with the best of 50 year old indoor gyms don't always mix well, so thinking outside the box is a must.

Also, for anybody wondering why there was fog, this was about 11:00 p.m. at night during a 12-inning game that started at 8.

This is after the game was over:
