Fuji Photo Day was a great promotion day when fans who brought a camera were allowed to go on the field to meet players before the game started. Andres (Big Cat) Galarraga was one of many fan favorites during the event. He went 2 for 5 and scored a run during the game that followed the event and the SF Giants won 8-7 over the Oakland A’s.
I took the photograph with my Nikon E5700 digital camera holding it high above my head to get above the crowd of people to get a shot of the players. It was hit and miss as I was not able to look through the view finder. I had to estimate where the camera was aimed at and took as many pictures as I could in a short amount of time. I used the on-camera flash to illuminate the players’ faces. There were probably about 5000 fans on the field during the pre-game event.
