Kevin Pucetas is a hometown guy, so I’ve photographed him often and consider him a friend. Oh, and he happens to be a top pitching prospect for the San Francisco Giants.
My favorite assignment was photographing him at the 2008 California-Carolina All-Star Game in Myrtle Beach, S.C. It was a challenging event, though, because by the time Kevin entered the game in relief all the daylight was gone and the lighting was awful, as it is in most Minor League parks.
Oh, well, I did the best I could at an ISO of about 3200. Thank goodness for the D300. (Oh, I took this photo of him while he was warming up before the game.)
