#YoureMyBoyLew

February 11, 2015

We have been the Colorado Rockies team photographers from the beginning of the franchise and have photographed many Fantasy Camps. For those that don’t know what Fantasy Camp is, allow us to explain. For five days, Rockies fans get treated like professional ball players at the Rockies spring training facility in Scottsdale, AZ. They get equipped with the latest Rockies apparel, uniforms, and equipment and get to use major league facilities.
This year was a special year because an 88-year-old camper named Lew Dunlap graced the fields of Salt River Fields. Here are a few pictures that attempt to capture his love for the game. Thank you Lew!

Here is also the video that got Lew some national attention for his passionate playing!

Fireworks and beautiful light at Coors Field

July 3, 2012

Early July means two things at Coors Field, great light for evening baseball games and fireworks. For those who have a DSLR and want to learn a few tricks to make better fireworks photos, try these tips (also, please keep in mind this is for professional firework displays only.)

1. Stabilize the camera. You’ll need a tripod or some way to keep the camera steady, most good fireworks photos happen over a long exposure, so the camera needs to be still.

2. Pre-focus the camera. The easiest way to do this is zoom your lens in as far as it will go and focus on the area you know the fireworks will be launching from, focus the camera, then zoom back out to your desired composition.
3. If you can manually control your camera, set it as follows. Sunny white balance, f11, ISO/ASA 100. The creativity comes in how long you leave the shutter open. I generally start out with longer shutter times toward the first part of the show because there are fewer fireworks and less smoke lingering in the air. As the show progresses I shorten the amount of time the shutter stays open. For example, the first photo I took at Coors Field was a 30 second exposure, the last photo I took was a a two second exposure for the grand finale.
4. Use the built in timer in the camera to take the photo. Most cameras have a timer built in so you can take a family photo etc. This helps stabilize the camera so that you don’t get blur from pushing the button down at the beginning of your long exposure.
5. For an added creativity, try zooming to different focal lengths during the show and try both horizontal and vertical photos. Be creative, that’s what makes photography challenging and fun.
Have a great fourth!

August 26, 2011

It has been awhile since we’ve posted images from Coors Field. Often our images can be seen all over town in street banners,billboards,bus signs and newspapers. Some of them large and some small. Some cropped and some not. This blog provides the opportunity to show work that may not have made it into the mainstream. As always, thanks for looking. In the coming weeks I plan on taking the opportunity to post a more rounded out presentation of the entire season in a more creative fashion. Stay tuned.

Salt River Field at Talking Stick

March 14, 2011

They say hope springs eternal, especially during spring training. Never has that been more true than this year with the dawning of a brand spanking new facility down in Scottsdale, Arizona. As team photographers, we had an opportunity to spend some time at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick last week. Below is a small sampling of images from my edit.
