Concert + Homestand 5

It felt like such a busy week this week! I photographed a country concert last weekend at Fenway, and then we had a full week of games against Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays. It was a good opportunity to try new things I've been wanting to work on, such as timelapses and working with light. I also spent a lot of time in the third base photo pit, and witnessed my first grand slam. Reflecting back on this week, I'm asking myself a few questions: How can I really push myself to work with light? How can I step out of my comfort zone and get closer to the players? How can I shoot classic action photos differently? How can I make use of the unique features of Fenway Park?

I'm also ready to start working on a project. Stay tuned. It'll be an audio slideshow. I haven't done one since sophomore year of college - exciting!

Homestand Three

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.
