The hardest part was just lugging the gear all the way out to center field, right above the 410 mark. Even though I'm standing there working with a headset on people walking by still stop and ask questions like I've got nothing else to do. I smile at them and chat if I'm not busy but usually I give them the old "I'm working" and point at my headset like someone is talking to me even though they aren't. The great thing about center field besides the fan interaction is that you can see everything and have a great view of the whole ball park.

Hi Sports Fans it's your Reno Camera Guy blogging you from center field at the Reno Aces (http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/index.jsp?sid=t2310) I got called in to work for them last Thursday, July 14th. It's a great gig and I love being in center field. I pretty much had a locked down static shot of the picher and home plate most of the evening. Every now and then I'd have to break away for crowd shots for the smile cam, dance cam and such, but over all it was a lot of fun.

This was the first fight promoted by Fight Republic (http://www.facebook.com/fightrepublic) and they did a great job. The fights moved along nicely and I heard they had to turn away 100's of people because they didn't have enough room. I'm sure they'll fix that for next time.
