What really goes into the galleries we post?

This weekend Dave Kisor turned to me and told me that he was really impressed with all the work we put into the College World Series… and by “we” he meant Pat Coleman, Jim Dixon (both of D3sports.com) and Larry Radloff and myself (for d3photography.com). He also mentioned that he used to just look at the photo galleries and like the photos he saw, but never knew how much goes into a game from start to finish.

He suggested we post a video of what it takes to do the work, I figured I’d make it easier on you to follow by posting it here on the blog.

This was our Saturday, and there might be a few omissions or errors in what I report so please bear with me.
