Faytteville at Har-Ber baseball

I’m so excited its baseball season again! Partially because I grew up playing the game, and partially because I don’t have to worry about light as much as other sports because the games are played pretty early! It was a great game and I was sad I had to leave after the fourth inning.

I was having an “on” photo day today and was very happy with some of my shots. Working with the 300mm lens we have is always good practice and I even started working with it on manual focus. I’m not confident enough to manually focus the whole game, but its coming along!

I'm originally from Colorado and I was introduced to photojournalism in high school while working on the school's yearbook. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in journalism and art. This is my first “real-world” job, but while in college I worked for CSU's daily student newspaper and I interned for Denver-based Westword, the Colorado Eagles (ACHL hockey team) and Johnson and Wales University. I cherish analog photography and I like to shoot on a medium-format Mamyia RB67 whenever I can. While I'm not at work, I enjoy doing all sorts of physical activities, especially mud runs and Crossfit, and I love to bake desserts (which are usually consumed by my coworkers).
