Week in photo, September 9, 2011

It’s been a crazy week covering the weather here in south central PA. With the Susquehanna River overflowing it’s bank, I’ll be back out later today and tomorrow covering the flooding but thought I’d post some of my favorites from the week so far.Spring Grove verses Red Lion girls volleyball

Baseball and Bad Guys

Fun evening of photographing little league baseball practice and a citizen’s police academy. Shortstop Brenden Kennedy hangs out at second during base stealing practice as the York Young Revolution baseball team prepares for the opening of little league baseball season, Tuesday March 29, 2011.

Think Spring! Day 15

Spring is getting closer!!! Today is the first day of spring sports practice at the local high schools. Visited Central York for a bit of tennis and track today. For some reason, I was drawn to details and shadows, much to my photo editor’s dismay, I’m sure. Here are a couple of shots for Day 15.

Think Spring! Day 22

Today’s Think Spring! entry may not mean much to anyone outside the news photography industry but to us, it’s a sure sign that spring is on the way. District basketball playoffs have commenced and I spent all evening tonight at the Giant Center photographing three PIAA District 3 semi-final games. Another week of basketball and we are into the start of the spring sports season!!!!!

A long but productive day

1 A.M. is drawing near and I’m just finishing up my shift for today. Started out with a quick assignment to go with a story about a former golf course that will someday be a hospital complex. After that it was off to Dallastown High School for a girls’ basketball double-header.

After five months and almost 30,000 frames, I finally have the D7000 dialed in. Shot all the action tonight at 6400 iso, 500th @ 2.8 and the images look like 800 iso on the old D2H.
