2/9/12-Something Historical–Fireworks Night-September 2004

This image has always been one of my favorites. I was looking for something different to shoot on this Fireworks Night in 2004 other than the obvious fireworks. As the fireworks were blowing off, the bright colors that were emitted beyond the pavillions were lighting the stadium with a wonderful glow all the way up the elevator tower. With my Canon EOS MarkII camera and 14mm mounted on a tripod, I found this angle and lowered down to include the mound.  As the show went on longer, smoke started blowing over the stadium seating area which happened to add to the image.    © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

2/9/12-Something Historical–Good Friends at Bank One Ballpark-June 5,2001

I took this photo of Maury Wills and the late Joe Black prior to game against the Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark back in June of 2001.

My favorite feature of this ballpark is the afternoon light that hits the dugout during our batting practice making beautiful light on subjects.I couldn’t pass this photo up. Back then, the dugout was purple. Now it is painted a deep rich red that is absolutely beautiful.

This was my first season of shooting digital (Nikon D1) compared to film only. Actually half of the time was digital and half film. Now it is 100% digital. After a short period switching from Nikon to Canon, I am back to shooting Nikon which will hopefully be the last time I switch complete systems.
