Tips and Tricks about these photos:

These photos were shot at night, under challenging conditions. Because I wanted to get "the roar of the crowd," I bought a Standing Room Only ticket and shot the photos among the Giants fans in the outfield. No special arrangements. No press pass. The crowd of 43,000+ was the largest ever to attend a game at AT&T Park. At times the crush of people was enormous. Still, people were in a great mood. It was a fun shoot.

I used a fabulous Nikon D3s camera, a Nikon SB-900 strobe, and a Nikon SU-800 trigger for the photography. ISO's varied from 800 to 6400. Camera RAW. All images processed in Photoshop CS-5 on a Macintosh computer. The camera and flash were adjusted to match the ambient light in the stadium and the stadium lights.
