Yet another cover shot that was created in the bottom of the ninth. I hate to admit it but we literally found our talent (Dan) as we arrived. This photo was probably one of the first 5 frames. We then drug him around the entire stadium getting another 100-200 shots of little use. The reason we even shot 20+ frames at this place was because the scoreboard cycles at a slow rate and 50% of the shots have a blank scoreboard. This one is just about perfect because the pitcher is in motion too. John Groth wrote the article.
The photo is taken with one remote strobe in a 24″ softbox. I’m using an ISO thats probably over 3,000. The white balance was the tricky part as there’s a whole lot of fluorescent lights and I unfortunately didnt have a gel to use on my strobe. So we adjusted in post a bit.
