I was thrilled when my friend and colleague asked me to come out to the ballpark to get some candid action shots of her son play. Walking up to the stands brought back so many memories. . . of being in high school and attending games with my friends and later watching my little brother has he ranked up from t-ball to all star pitcher in high school. The ball fields always smell the same, don't they? Hotdogs, boiled peanuts and the smell of little athlete warriors fill the air. Sports photography is new to me so it was really fun to try my hand at something entirely out of comfort zone. Lucas is such a cutie it was easy to get some good shots of him in action. Here is just a peek of last week's session. [caption id="attachment_121" align="alignleft" width="600" caption="Lucus on the Mound © Callander Photography 2011, Thomasville, GA"][/caption]
It didn't take me long to realize that I *really* want to build a better inventory of lenses. I've focused mainly on building my equipment set for portrait work. I was surprised to find that sports and action photography is interesting enough to compel me to investigate it further. Any photogs out there with suggestions for lenses or other equipment?
