Wrigley Field (and stands)

It’s quite a challenge to get both the field and the stands illuminated at Wrigley and especially so at night. The old ballpark wasn’t built for today’s amenities, and field lights that were put in during the late 1980s offer little in the way of spillover for the seats.

Wedged up at the back of the stands underneath the grandstand, I used six exposures to put detail back into this shot. The overwhelmingly bright field left the stands in silhouette when exposed properly; when exposing for the stands the field was left entirely blow out. It looked like people were staring into the sun. In retrospect I would have liked to do nine images to get this right, but I was able to pick and choose to get enough out of both the field and stands to make it feel like you’re really there.
