More on keeping my eye open. I noticed I had a bad habit when shooting sports action of lowering the camera as soon as I had the peak moment, in this case the runner sliding across the plate. Here I stayed with the shot past that, and got the runner slyly sticking his tongue out at his teammates in the dugout, and the complaint to the umpire by the shortstop. I've talked before about trying to capture the heroic drama of sports, but it's easy to forget that it's also about the fun the players are having.
