I have mentioned before that I believe my best photos are made by making a plan, then see what happens and to get lucky. I bet I took around 25 photos of this kid. I didn't know I got this until I got home. Face ball action.

I use a 400 for baseball. This was shot through the fence at about 100 ft. I just noticed the ball is out of focus. No DOF at 2.8.

Judging by the look on his face, I kinda feel sorry for the batter.  Nice shot, Phil.  :)

Yes the ball is out of focus, but at least the guy is in focus.


Still shooting DX digital and don't plan on going full frame.
