June 2, 2022 – Baseball.

2022, Baseball, Beyond 200 feet of My House™, Favourite, Inspiration, Nikon, Nikon D4, Portrait, Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM, Sports

They won last night.

Their record is now 5-1.

First image is ISO 900, the subsequent three are at ISO 10,000 (yes, ten thousand).  This was dictated by the rapid loss of light after the sun set, and also the f/6.3 max aperture of the Sigma on the telephoto end.  However, the Sigma is a light zoom at a bargain price, and provides a very nice rendering, so the need for high ISO is a trade-off I can live with.

This season is officially history.

Speaking of which, the medium of film gives this photo a nice vintage vibe.

Lastly, I choose the skyline + clubhouse as a backdrop but I lucked out  that the field was empty and the sky was overcast (making for some gentle lighting despite it being midday).
