Ballpark Concert

A day at the ballpark is fun for the entire family, but add a concert after the game and you have a combination better than a double hitter. I’m not the biggest sports fan in the world, but I do enjoy going to a major league game once or twice a year. The sights and sounds are a lot of fun, but I grow old of the crowds quickly and the long drive to and from the stadium. When we do go, we try to combine it with an extra activity.

Last summer, the David Crowder Band gave an after-game concert following a Houston Astros baseball game. It was the first concert I’ve been to in a while and the family had a great time.

For some photo geek-speak… A shot like this is simple to take, but hard to expose correctly. The contrast between the light on the field and the light from the bright video screens usually means one or the other will come out correctly exposed. This is a great reason to shoot raw files and adjust it in processing to balance things out. You can’t do that if you shoot the default jpeg files that most cameras shoot. ¬†This was a just a single shot, tweaked in Lightroom.
