Baseball, one of the major assignments for Small Format, is due today. I attended 11 games over more than a month! That’s hundreds upon hundreds of baseball pictures, all in search of peak action. At one point during the weeks leading up to this due date, our teacher said that when there are no base runners he will focus his lens on the batter. And with that little piece of advice I was able to capture this intimate moment between the catcher and the unsuspecting batter. I didn’t submit this for my assignment, but I did print a copy for my teacher at his request.
