field of screens
I can’t pass up a silhouette.
Before last night’s Sox/Twins’ game at US Cellular Field, I was mesmerized by the bright sunlight shining on the center field scoreboard.
A group of fans were standing around on the party deck silhouetted against a bright yellow hot dog billboard.
During the National Anthem and the pre-game video montage, I photographed different variations of the scene. For awhile I tried to keep the video screen recognizable by using a slower shutter speed and then I used a high shutter to speed to render the video image as a jumble of colors.
After the game began, I continued to play around between innings until the sun descended behind the stadium.
My favorite combination of silhouette and abstract video board was one of the final ones I made before concentrating on the game.
