The MLB created this interesting behind-the-scenes look at the work of photographer Andy Kuno, a member of the San Francisco Giants’ photo department. Kuno has a family history of photography for the Giants: his parents ran a photo lab in SF that regularly processed the Giants’ photos back in the days of film and that opened the door to a career for Kuno. After originally not wanting to have a career in photography like his parents did, Kuno has been a staff photographer for the team since 1996.

Roberto Baldwin of Wired writes about how an SF man felt the fury of the Internet recently after pretending to be a bus-smashing rioter photographed after the SF Giants won the World Series:
The photo in question went viral pretty quickly, at least around the Bay Area. Reddit has a thread dedicated to finding the man in the photo […] San Francisco resident Tony Lukezic saw it Monday night after some people pointed out that he looked like the vandal. “A couple of my buddies said, ‘Hey, this guy looks like you,’” Lukezic told Wired. Instead of just laughing the resemblance off, Lukezic switched out his profile picture with the offending photo and began to boast that he was indeed the bus smasher. It seemed funny right up to the point that someone took a screen grab of conversation under the profile pic and posted it to Twitter.
A few hours later, the screen grab wound up on the Facebook page of a San Francisco nightclub called Red Devil Lounge, where commenters began posting Lukezic’s phone number, information about what sort of car he drives, and pictures of him and his son. He also started receiving anonymous messages from outraged citizens.
