Last Sunday saw the opening league game of the 20th season of the Hluboka Baseball & Softball Club (www.baseball-hluboka.cz). Hluboká, the home team, last year's league champion faced, and defeated twice, a newbie league team, the west-Bohemian Domazlice Wolfs.
The baseball in Hluboká is one of my long term photographic projects and my photography hobby actually took off almost 20 years ago. The lessons learned are priceless, especially in terms of organizing my photoarchive. Preparing an outdoor photoexhibition is not such an easy task when the stock of scanned negatives has less than a pleasant date, time, place, person info on it :-).
In order not to be all around the place, this year I focus on photographing just sports clubs - the baseball club in Hluboka and the rugby club in Ceske Budejovice, and two larger sport events - the world ultimate frisbee championship in Italy and European baseball championship in the Czech republic. And, besides the photojournalism I try to include a bit of portrait work and a tiny bit of video in there too. A plan I try to stick to, at least.
