One of those delightful surprises recently was the Southwest Slammers, a softball team that is made up of mostly blind players. They use a beep baseball (it makes a rather loud beep noise so players know where it is). The guests were interesting, the subject matter was interesting, and one of our show hosts put on a blindfold and tried to hit the ball in the TV studio while the other pitched it.
I am getting better at knowing what shutter speed to set my camera to get motion frozen in a still photograph. I think the photo I posted below from the segment came out looking pretty cool and captured a moment that told the story it was supposed to. As a bonus, there are also a couple of photos where I had to run the shutter speed about as fast as I could under our lighting conditions from a performance preview of the Nutcracker.
A few moments of the show frozen in time:
