What's the call?
Have to be honest - I hate shooting baseball.
I grew up playing lacrosse, which was always pitted against baseball as being the non-wimp sport.
But of recent I've grown to enjoy the game. That is, with proper equipment. In equipment I mean an iPod with good tunes.
I am not one to block out ambient noise. I feel like I am missing something that could clue me into a moment while on assignment.
Yet to stay excited for baseball I have to listen to good music, and change up my shooting style.
In this case, I decided to break away from full-frame shooting and hit up work's Canon 1D Mark II, a 400mm with a 1.4x converter added - 728mm of goodness.
As for music, I went with a combination of Band of Horses and my good friend Drew's mash-up mix, otherwise known as, twoKittenschocolateKisses.
The trifecta of two bands and a fresh perspective proved to be what I needed to get through the first five innings or so before deadline.
