CRAZY weather today!! Hope everyone stayed safe and at least relatively dry... or was able to dry off later!
I left Silber Studios and headed directly to Berkeley through the rain to shoot Cal Men's Baseball head shots. After my site scouting at the batting cages, the SID was pretty set on the club room. But we only shot head shots so it wasn't too terrible. It started hailing and there was thunder and lighting so I figured it was not a safe idea to be outside with my flash on A GIANT METAL POLE! So I used on-camera flash. Least ideal situation, but Murphy's law really applied today.
On a cute note, after I packed up and was heading out the door, pitcher Kevin Miller walks in. I asked if I had already shot him or if he was just coming in... he apologized and said he was just entering. I didn't mind because I was running ahead of schedule so I asked him to hang out for a bit while I set up and it gave him just enough time to explain his day. Someone dropped a 10lb weight on his foot and he broke 2 toes, after recently being excited that he was finally healthy after hip surgery, then his class schedule got messed up, he's on the waitlist, which is manual, then he went to his car and had a flat tire, had to call his girlfriend to go wait with the car while AAA came, and he ran, in the rain, to head shots. I am SO GLAD I did not give him a hard time for being late! Poor guy, can't catch a break!
Team photo will have to be rescheduled :-(
