One of my goals this baseball season is to catch the baseball in mid-flight from the pitcher to the catcher. First part of the experiment was to just catch the ball and keep the pitcher in focus. It took 2 games and three pitchers but I got it.
Andrew has a nice delivery that was easy to follow with the camera. The hard part was not letting the batter, catcher, umpire or the fence get in the way.
Next part of the challenge is to freeze the ball, in flight and in focus. The second part will definitely be the more difficult of the two but I am up for the challenge. The beauty of digital photography. Practice, practice and more practice till you get it right!
Oh, and after 8 innings and some unbelievable batting, we brought home the W!
Behind every great pitcher is a great catcher. In this case, Andrew is both!
