Someone Please Break My Habit…

Well, to start things off, I had a pretty standard week! It was business as usual at the games, taking pictures of the players, fans, etc. Our team is getting a little questionable though; we’re starting to win a game, then lose a game. We’ve solidified our spot in the playoffs however, so maybe our guys are taking an unspoken break…

Regardless of how they’re doing, I’m still enjoying myself at the games! I’ve developed a “squad” that I talk to each game. They’reĀ  group of regulars who attend each game, and they always manage to sit right by the spot I park myself in to take pictures. So naturally, we’ve started to talk and enjoy the games together! Definitely gives my experience a little something more.

But speaking of experience, two things are currently weighing heavy on my mind. The main thing is, I’m starting to wonder what’s ever going to become of our pictures. I personally take about 100-200 every game, but we haven’t really had anyone confirm what’s going to ultimately happen to them. The whole “database on the website” thing has been thrown around, but nothing has been solidified for sure. I’m going to check in with my supervisor and see what she says, because her instructions were clear early on; take pictures of all the players from both teams, the fans, and the events in the stadium at each game. Seems simple enough…but what happens to all the pictures at the end?

And the second…I cannot stop calling runs “points.” What kind of disgrace to baseball. Shoutout to Dr. Wolek for reminding me, because I should know better. And yet I continue to slip up! At least I’ve started to correct myself when I post to the League’s Instagram, but yikes.

Hopefully both “issues” will get resolved…

One thought on “Someone Please Break My Habit…”

  1. Maybe you should be pro-active about the photo albums and research options. There are a number of web services for this like SmugMug. You could take one of two paths: 1) ask your supervisor for permission to research options and come back with a short report, or 2) do the research first, then approach your supervisor with the understanding that they may not want your input. But this could be an opportunity to show off some more of your capabilities beyond taking photos.
