Queens of the Diamond: Backstop

Backstop” is the fourth image in my summer series, “Queens of the Diamond“. The image depicts one of the team’s catchers at the moment she receives the pitch as the umpire looks on. How the catcher frames the pitch could result in swaying the umpire’s ball or strike decision. In addition, with a runner on base squeezing that pitch is important because it holds the runner at first.

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.
