I just got back from Florida where I was assigned to shoot the New York Yankees Spring Training. Spring Training is one of my favorite assignments of the year and I have been doing it for 8 years now. It can get a little repetitive so the challenge, and the fun, it to try something new each year. Last year I brought my tilt shift lens and had a lot of fun trying to look at things from a different perspective. Ever since college, when I got a Russian made Horizon swing lens camera, I have been in love with panoramic images. Especially swing lens images. So it was with great excitement I headed down to Tampa with my Noblex swing lens panoramic film camera and 20 rolls of Tri-X in tow. You can imagine my disappointment on the first day of pitchers and catchers when I realized it was not working. I was just so bummed out and now I need to find someone who can fix it. Just to be nostalgic though, I dug out a couple of old travel photos I shot with the camera. I can't wait to start shooting with it again (assuming I can get it fixed). So check back in the future and be on the lookout for a new swing lens project.
Since I mentioned it, I figured I would put a gallery up of the photos I shot at Spring Training with the tilt shift.
