Homestand three is in the books. I feel like I just got here, but today I'm exactly one month in. I'm a tough critic of my own work, and after each game, someone will ask me how I felt about my edit from the game and I'll usually say something like, "It's fine" and that's it. I'm always amazed though, at how many photos I actually like once I wait to do a second edit a week or so later. I guess sometimes you just need to take a step back and look at things with a different lens.
This homestand I spent a little more time in the photo pits, rather than feature hunting. The third-base pit at Fenway is kind of a struggle, but each game I'm trying to figure out where I need to be to get the right shots. I'm trying to actively think about how I frame my shots, and the ways in which I can make a regular photo look different by doing so.
I'm also on the hunt for a story. Some story ideas I originally had haven't panned out, so I'm keeping an eye on others. I really want to work on something that's meaningful, rather than a process-y human interest type story. I'll come up with something, I'm sure.
Additionally, I'm including some features from events I've shot as well as the Zac Brown Band concert that Fenway hosted this weekend.
As always, thanks for looking. Life's good here in Boston.
My second homestand with the Red Sox came more naturally for me than the first. By this time, I had learned the layout of the ballpark, I knew which players to look for & plays to expect from them, and I took some extra time to experiment. I also took some time to draw up story ideas that I'd like to work on throughout the season.
It was a busy couple of days, including a Hall of Fame Gala, Alumni Game, and several home games against the Braves and Blue Jays.
Enjoy a few of my favorites from this past week!
