Trying New Things

Sometimes when I am at a game I like to try new things as was the case with the photo above of Rafael Dolis. For a while there I thought he was the only pitcher Daytona had on the hill for them. Just the way the rotation was working out and my schedule of games I could cover he was the only Dayotna pitcher I shot for 3 games. I took this on a Sunday afternoon game around the 3rd inning after I had some shots that I could submit to MiLB. I submitted this photo along with the other shots I took that afternoon and MiLB used it as one of their photos of the week.  You can view this photo and the other photos from the galley here. I have also added a few other photos below of Rafael from some of his other starts this year.

Cool photo! How did you manage to get the ball in focus, though? I can’t imagine any camera can focus that quickly on a speeding baseball. Did you prefocus on a certain area, and try to get the photo as the ball traveled through? Did it take several tries until it came out right?

Sue-
You are correct I picked a spot between the mound and home plate and manually set my focus. Surprisingly enough I got this photo on the 3rd pitch. Thanks for the comment
