Photo of the day: From the dugout II

During a softball game that lasts an hour and a half, there's plenty of time to capture candid shots of players in the dugout. Multiply that by a Fastpitch Tournament lasting all of two days, and you're bound to get some good ones.

A dugout is a natural softbox: shaded inside, with a large pane of indirect light to flatter anyone who stands in its opening. The only trick is to capture the right moment and the right composition: a cheer for her teammates, a contemplative thought, a player patiently waiting her turn at bat, a shy gleam in a player's eye.
