Backstory, Part Two
I found a complete copy of the May 23, 1990 edition of my college newspaper, the California State University San Bernardino Chronicle, so I've scanned it to show to my photography students the type of work I did when I first started.
The issue, made when I was 23, included five of my photographs.
Above: on the cover, a photo of the celebration after game one of a three-game series. On the Sports page, two further shots: a home run complete with the ball in the frame and a pitcher mid-throw. Keep in mind that in those days, I was shooting a Pentax K1000 -- with no motor drive and no autofocus -- and developing my film by hand.
