I had a media pass to shoot the game (Yankees vs. Pirates), and I was in the photo pit, next to the Yankee’s dugout, near first base, which came in handy later in the game where I got this shot of Miguel standing on first base (he still has his batting helmet on). The shot was taken with a Nikon D2X, in high-speed Crop Mode, with a Nikon 200mm F/2 and a Nikon 1/4 tele-extender. The color version looks great, but when I converted it to Black and White I fell in love with it (and luckily, so did Miguel).
I shot alongside some great sports photographers, including shooters from Upper Deck Trading Cards, and AP Sports. I’ll post some more shots from the game (I got loads of shots of Miguel, as I was on assignment shooting him, but I also got shots of everyone from Derek Jeter, to Arod, to former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani who was there to throw out the first pitch, to Yankee’s Hall of Famer Yogi Berra). It was a beautiful day to shoot a ball game! :)
