As photographers we learn to appreciate light in all its forms. When working with natural light we are totally at the mercy of the elements, which can often mean waiting for hours, if not days, for the conditions to create the image we see in our mind's eye.

Baseball girls

Following on from my evolution into an off-camera flash kinda guy, here's some happy looking girls from the Cairns Junior Baseball League under lights at the new Walker Rd baseball complex in Edmonton.
