Practice, practice, practice! I love shooting, and I love shooting sports. With the Spinners game tomorrow (did I mention my new Facebook page you should go and like?), I got lucky when a conference call ended early allowing me time to go grab some shots of our West Chester U’s softball team playing visiting East Stroudsburg. Timing the swings with the pitches was harder than it seems – even at 10 frames per second, you can get both sides of the swing without getting it right on. You really have to focus on the swing more than the pitch.
In all, it was a fun time, and helped with my photo reflexes. Being behind a fence make me miss focus on a couple shots that I otherwise was locked into, so no fault of mine or the camera.
By the way, West Chester won 9-1.
