This week’s photo of the week goes to Technician Photo Editor Natalie Claunch’s picture of Jake Armstrong preparing to make an outfield catch at the Virginia Tech baseball game. We don’t often capture the moments in the outfield, but when we do, this is how they should be done. The moment captured is clearly one that shows that Armstrong is about to make a catch and the base runner in the foreground provides more clarity for the situation. The arm of the runner provides somewhat of a framing effect on Armstrong and draws your eye toward the action that’s going on in the outfield. Natalie was also able to dial in her exposure when switching from harsh lighting at the plate to clear sunlight in the outfield. Although it ran too cropped in the paper, the original image is how it should’ve run.
