Oregon Softball vs. Oregon State Game 1

I was asked to shoot the first home Duck softball game.  It was actually my first softball game that I have attended.  I have to say I really enjoyed being at the game.  The girls on the team as so fun to watch.  They certainly have a swagger and they enjoy playing the game.  They are so supportive of each other.  I have recently started shooting the Oregon baseball games and softball is just different and entertaining.  The action is fast, lots of sliding into bases.  Saw a home run, bunting, balls off the wall, and some terrific plays in the field.  The last out of the game was an amazing catch of a foul ball by an Oregon player reaching over the fence separating the field from the Oregon bull pen.  I thought she was going to be injured.  I appreciate their intensity, enthusiasm, team work, and skill level.  I hope to be able to shoot a few more games.

I am a photographer that loves to shoot action. I have been a wildlife photographer for many years and recently decided to become a sports photographer. I love sports and to be able to capture the height of the action and the expressions on the players faces. It's a work in progress. I hope to shoot many sporting events in the years to come.
