Queens of the Diamond: The Wind-up

The Wind-up” is the third image in my summer series, “Queens of the Diamond“. The image depicts one of the team’s pitchers as she begins her wind-up. She is completely focused on the catcher’s mitt moments before she explodes off the rubber, her arm windmilling over her head and back around to fire the ball towards home. Of course, the batter (not pictured) hopes to spoil the party.

Sports photography is not my forte but I have set out to capture some special moments for my daughter’s fast pitch team. I will post some of the best images here on Greg’s Blog throughout the summer. I hope you decide to follow along as I chronicle the girls’ journey while expanding my photographic range. I look forward to hearing what you have to say. Please leave feedback in the comment section below.

Image captured in May 2022 at the Steve Brown Sports Complex, Brantford, Ontario.
Equipment: Canon EOS 60D, EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM.
Additional processing via Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop.
