NMSU Baseball

I spent my lunch hour on Wednesday, February 24 to catch the NMSU Baseball team take on University of the Southwest. This game was rescheduled from the previous evening due to weather, and it was a great decision! It turned out to be a gorgeous day for a double-header, but unfortunately I had to head back to work.

It should be another great season with the likes of Mike Sodders, Wade Reyñoso and Ryan Aguayo back for another strong campaign in the WAC!

Mixing it up

Just when I thought things would die down, a whole bunch of new opportunities presented themselves. Last weekend I shot the Mesilla Valley Christian Schools’ Social.

Sound of Music

On Thursday, I attended the opening night of The Mesilla Valley Christian Schools’ drama club performance of  “The Sound of Music”. With the exception of “Maria’s” wedding veil coming off during the ceremony, the play went off without a hitch.

The quality of the light on the stage at the Rio Grande Theatre was is very nice, so there was no need to drag along my fast primes. For most of the shots, I was in the range of 1/160 second @ f/ 4.5 on my 70-200 mm. I also took my 300mm for close-ups, and it was the perfect focal range from the back of the theatre.

On Friday afternoon I braved the heat to catch the Oñate/Valley baseball game at Apodaca Park. This was the second game in the series and the Knights pulled out a win to advance to the next round of the 5A state tournament.

Baseball is the sport I have the least amount of experience with, so shooting the NMSU baseball team has really helped me learn and appreciate the game much more.
