“As you can see, Kate, I cleaned and straightened just about nothing before shooting this photo. Didn’t even put cool images on the computer screens...”
No tricks, no manipulation, no styling.
FROM YOUR DESKS: What a stellar photograph; how did you shoot it (camera, lens, time of day?)
DON HAMERMAN: A Canon 5DMkII 15mm fisheye lens, midday.
FYD: Baseballs. Your series is amazing. I own two of your prints from 20×200 ; how did you decide to deconstruct the balls?
DH: I didn’t decide to deconstruct the balls, each one is shot as found. No tricks, no manipulation, no styling. Which prints do you own?
DH: I sort of like baseball, and I’m kind of a Yankees fan, but I couldn’t name the starting lineup… well, not the whole lineup. Yankees!
FYD: Thank you for saying that!

Kate notes Don’s visceral blog is always inspiring over morning coffee. His prints make great additions or gifts, certainly to this Yankees girl and baseball fan. Certainly don’t miss what’s left @ 20×200. Don’t wait around too long either.
