p.1 #1 · MLB Mets at Cubs 5/18/13


Trying to get back into the habit of posting from my shoots. Here are a few shots from yesterday's 8-2 victory by the home team.

The first shot was a nice play by Ruben Tejada to start a double play. You may ask yourself how a diving stop to the shortstop's right could possibly result in 6-4-3 DP? Answer: First of all, the ball was hit very sharply, and secondly the catcher was the batter, and he's not exactly fleet of foot.

Dennis,
You're still alive? Good to hear, man. I'm sure I've been absent from here much longer than you!

Man those are tack sharp shots. First time here, i'm from Montreal, Canada and also a sport shooter, but a bit challenged lens wise. Will get a 400mm f2.8 one day.

Were those shots done with this lens ? They seem so close i wonder if it's not the 500mm or even the 600mm. Any who great job. No one is that good in the Quebec photography forums i hang out in, not even me...

Raymond, merci. The first and third were taken with the 70-200 f/2.8L on an EOS 1D-MkIII and the second and fourth with a 400 f/2.8L on an EOS 1D-MkIV. The EXIF should be intact for all four images.

Thanks, ami.

Raymond, yes, I shoot professionally. There are a number of full and part-time pro sports photographers on this board, which, along with the myriad helpful amateurs, makes it the best place online to learn and improve your sports photography skills.

I think the bigger accomplishment than these great photos is Any Cubs win!
I say this as a local.

To answer a couple PM's I've received, batter shots do not necessarily have to contain the ball, or a proximity of ball-on-bat, to be worthwhile. Here's a capture of Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo hitting a solo home run in the same game as the shots above. It's taken from the "wrong" side (It's normally thought that LH batters should be taken from down the 3B line), and it captures a point in time well after the ball and bat collided. Tells a decent story, though.
