Sports Shooter Academy recently released this 3-minute behind-the-scenes video in which Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim director of photography Matt Brown talks about how he uses remote camera setups to cover baseball games.
During typical games, Brown will use 4 remote DSLRs: one on the roof with a 300mm lens, one behind home plate with a 180, one right outside the Angels’ dugout with a 24mm, and the last one near 1st base for capturing plays at the plate.
Brown also says that due to the fact that remote cameras are unreliable in their results, he uses their images as “dessert” to supplement what he captures himself.
Here are some of Brown’s Angels photos, both ones captured by hand and ones captured with remote cameras:
Also, Sports Shooter Academy will be leading a sports photography workshop in November that’ll cover the use of remote cameras.
