Not such a good night

Well, it was not such a good night at the ball park - from a baseball or photography standpoint.  Our boys lost and are now down in the loser's bracket - one more loss and we go home.  Also, after the sun went down, I really couldn't get very good pictures without too much blur.  It was good to experiment and research, though, and the real answer seems to be that I need a new lens. LOL!
On the up side, the hipstamatic iphone camera app took cool pix at night (like this one) and the loser bracket games are all at 5:00.  So, I should be able to use my regular bag of photo tricks.

Oh no - I hope they pick up and do well next game xx

Sounds like a good excuse for a photo lens shop ;-) As you say though, the hipstamatic app does a great job here!

They've done great to get as far as they have so I hope they aren't too disheartened. As for the night photography, I can imagine that this is a perfect excuse for a little retail therapy but in the meantime, were you using a tripod in order to hold the camera steady for show shutter speeds? Those little 'gorillapods' are great for throwing in a camera bag and you can curl them round most things to get a good steady base. Hope the next game goes their way x

I have a wry smile on my face - a new lens is always the answer ;-)

Such bad luck for Henry and his team, hopefully they'll bounce back for the next game.

So sorry Henry's team lost their game, but they should be so proud to have gotten to the state championship! That photo just increases my desire for an iPhone!
