Good shot.


This is only a tip but if you can go behind the backstop and shoot through the fence. If you hold it just right you will not get any of the fense in the shot but you must be right up to it. It will look like they are throwing it to you.

thanks ! thats what i do ,lol.
my e100rs lens fits right in it, i have to be careful for stray balls being tiped off. you have to find the right hole some are smaller ,lol
The fence at this field goes around the whole thing and is like 12 feet high , very bad field for getting shots.
I did stand on a chair that was close on the first base side and hold up my camera for some shots,lol.
they were not too bad

One of the things I have found to help shooting through a fence is to use your hand as a steady point against the fence and the end of the lens. It keeps the lens at the proper point to "see" though the smaller holes and foul balls may sting a little :lol: but it saves lenses.

I shoot a lot of shots through fences at little league games. Go to:

and check out the little league photos. 75% were shot through the fence. In 2002 I used a Sony Mavica FD-71, 2003 was done with a Fuji Finepix S602Z. For 2004 I will use a Drebel, looking forward to it.

When I bought my DRebel I got the 18-55mm lens, also a Sigma 70-300 APO zoom and just recently purchased the Canon 50mm f/1.8. As money :lol: allows I would like to purchase a 400mm EF lens

I love the haircut of the shortstop. It reminds me of the Philly's teams of the late '70s!
