This photo appeared on page 21 in The Town Common (April 20-April 26,2011). The caption was: “Marion Dullea (#13) pitched Triton to a 3-1 opening game win over Ipswich with eight strikeouts on April 12th at Triton.”
This picture was taken at Triton on a sunny (windy) afternoon. I greatly appreciated being able to shoot outdoors.
Triton/Ipswich are in the readership of The Town Common. I not only took pictures but also scripted the game as I have been doing in basketball. Scripting was a challenge because I’m new to it for softball/baseball.
I used my Canon EOS Rebel T1i. I was in the TV mode with the ISO at 3200. The shutter speed was at 1/200 and the F-stop at 22. I used a +1/3 exposure compensation.
This photo was on the front page of The Town Common (April 6-April 12, 2011). The caption was: “Kate Carney put on a one-hour performance as Bethenia Owen-Adair (first woman doctor in the West) in Groveland as part of Women’s History Month.”
This picture was taken indoors with normal indoor lighting at Nichols Village in Groveland. Indoor pictures come out yellower than I would like.
The woman pictured was in costume and kept good eye contact with audience in various parts of the room. I had seen an entry for this event listed in The Town Common. It was a freebie.
I used my Canon EOS Rebel T1i. I was in the TV mode with an ISO of 1600. I used a flash with a shutter speed at 1/200. The F-stop was 4.0
This picture appeared on the front page of The Town Common (February 16th -22nd, 2011) with the following caption: “Johnny Spears (#4) of Georgetown defends Darren Lewis (#10) of Triton during the Vikings, 65-49, win on February 9th at Triton.”
The photo was taken at night in the very well-lighted Triton gymnasium.
Hard to resist a picture of (arguably) the two best players in the game when they are together. They also were not moving at any speed which lessened blurring possibilities.
I used my Canon EOS Rebel T1i camera. I was shooting in the TV mode. Shutter speed was 1/160, F-stop 5.0, Exposure compensation + 1/3, and ISO at 1600.
This picture appeared on the front page of the January 26-February 1 issue of The Town Common with the caption: “Coley Viselli (#14), and Brooke Stewart (#32), and Masco coach Bob Romeo follow the action in Pentucket’s, 50-33, win at West Newbury on January 16th.”
The picture was taken during the late afternoon in the Pentucket gymnasium. Without curtains, the light was pouring in and helped brighten up this shot.
The two girls in the picture are their team’s best players. I am always looking for combinations of players together, especially top players. Coach Romeo, with his size and usual bright red shirt, is always a good photo subject.
I used my Canon EOS Rebel T1i for this picture. My settings were: 1/100 shutter speed, 4 F-stop, TV mode, and ISO 800.

#4 Cam Roy of the Newburyport Clippers
This picture appeared in the January 12-18 issue of The Town Common with the caption, “Newburyport’s Cam Roy (#4) scored three goals and led the undefeated (6-0) Clippers past Masconomet, 5-3, on Wednesday night at Graf Rink.”
This picture was taken from the top row on the spectator side of the Graf Rink on January 5th. I came in knowing that Cam Roy was Newburyport’s top scorer. He didn’t disappoint by getting a hat trick while I watched.
The cold conditions shortened my camera’s battery life.
I used my Canon EOS Rebel T1i for this photo. My settings were: TV mode, ISO 6400, 1/125 shutter speed, and 9 F-Stop.
Alyssa Nogueira & Beth Castantini
