I shot the University of Central Missouri’s Mules baseball double-header for assignment #4. I have never been a athlete or a sports fan. It was like pulling teeth to photograph the Mules basketball session earlier this year, and I found it equally as painful doing baseball. The staff would not let photographers on the field to catch the action, and so the only other choice was to sit in the fan section behind everything, which pretty much forces you to only see the backs of the players. I was having issues focusing past the fence and the net, along with just general sharpness problems. Moral of the story: I will NEVER be a sports photographer.
…And that is that.
