SOOC Saturday

Other than cropping or possibly straightening the horizon using iPhoto, there is no post-production on my photos. The reason for this is two-fold: intimidation and lack of time. I was thrilled to find SOOC Saturday by way of Tracy Clark's My Best Shot Monday.

Every once in a while I find a serendipitous photo on the card when I upload onto the computer when I get home from events. I'm accomplished enough that I know many things about photography; but, even when all is going right you can end up with nothing. In this case it was a ton of people in the way, temperamental natural light as well as a chain-link fence:

Claire was called upon to pitch this week at the Burlington game vs Milton. Her first time on the mound since last season. She was incredible. Three up; three down; eight pitches. She is a really good baseball player and a real contributor to her team. You can't ask for much more than that. So proud of our girl.

I personally like shooting through a chain link fence, because it adds some texture to the photo. Great focus on Claire.
