Freezing the Ball: Catching the Pitcher’s Pitch

There’s nothing more satisfying that capturing a photo you’ve wanted to get for a long time. For me, it was freezing a ball tack sharp between the pitcher and the batter with both out of focus. On Thursday I shot the Blaine vs Lynden Christian varsity boys baseball game for The Bellingham Herald. There was not a lot of action on the field, so I concentrated on the pitchers.

Total Concentration

Blazing Glory!! Sunsets in Bellingham, Wash.

The past few weeks have offered some blazing and glorious sunsets here in Bellingham, Wash. One of the things I like to shoot during sunsets are something different than what everyone else shoots: the sunset. It’s nice to get something better. During one particular evening, the sight of the setting Sun was too much to bear. I just had to shoot it.

March Madness began in the Pacific Northwest for high school basketball teams. Over the past week, I shot several games. The Lynden Lions girls played against the Burlington-Edison Tigers and the Lynden boys played the Bellingham Red Raiders in the District 2A Northwest Championship at Mount Vernon High School in Mount Vernon, Wash.
