Starting Off Right
This was the first photo that I made on the day. I had a couple seconds notice that something was going to happen, and I quickly dropped to my knee and made this photo. It was a good way to start the day, and what I thought was a great part of a fun day.
Keeping A Promise
Last week I talked about wanting to make this photo. I had made it for softball, and I wondered how it would work for baseball. When I saw them painting the Purdue P on the mound I knew that it was the night to try it. It was another great way to start the game.
A Painful Feeling
Something happened to me Tuesday night that had never happened yet. With less than an inning left in the game the card in my second camera said it was not working. I used one camera for the rest of the game thinking that I would just upload the images and see what was up with the card later. In the back of my mind I knew that the card would not work upstairs either, but I was staying positive. Of course it never worked, and I lost about 1/3 of my take from the night. Of course I know that I should have had a second card in both cameras, but on the go I never did that. Saving RAW to both cards takes up too much of the buffer. Of course over the course of the next few days leading up to my next gig I need to rethink how I do things. I had some stadium shots that I knew would be on my year end countdown. I already had editing plans for a couple of them. As of this writing it looks like all is lost. The 32GB drive shows up as a 33.5MB drive when you check it out with the various recovery programs. Hopefully this is the only time this becomes an issue for me. It took what was a great day, and left me with a horrible feeling to end it.
