On a rare weekend at home you would think I would be relaxing at home or out fishing right? Sadly my brain isn’t wired that way. I am a workaholic so I filled my weekend up with a couple of MLB games in downtown Phoenix. Friday nights game was solid for photos so I figured I would throw together a short blog on it. Enjoy!

I’m too tired to write more details about the shoot so lets go straight to the photos from the game…

  1. How are you liking the performance of the 1DX? Is the noise performance (high ISO settings) really as good as it looks in your pictures? Great shots – I really enjoy your work!

  2. Brad Kuntz says:

    The 1Dx high iso is better than the 5DIII that I have and the 5DIII is great past 12800 and even 25000 is good as long as you dont push the shadows and properly expose the shot to begin with. Nikon still rules the shadows noise and dynamic range at ever iso.
