2015 Arizona Fall League

WHY I CHOSE THIS PHOTO: This one is simply about light. Those of you who follow me know I love shooting baseball and this year I had a chance to go down to Arizona and shoot the Arizona Fall League. During this game, home plate is in beautiful late afternoon sun, while the stands are in dark shadow. This sets up a nice contrast to get shots like this of the batters. In this case, the batter's form, the dirt from the impact of the ball that has bounced up and is reflecting the light, plus the flare off the top of his helmet, all against the dark background, add up to make for a nice shot.
