  • While shooting a baseball game in Lake Zurich, the sun was setting, back-lighting the plate. Every time a pitch was thrown a cloud of dust shot out of the catcher's mitt. I liked the way the back light highlights the dust as the ball hits the catchers mitt and that's why I cose it for the Perspective column.

  • Scott Sanders/ssanders@dailyherald.comThe Main Street parade! What would summer be without the marching bands on Main Street, hot weather, flags, and enthusiastic crowds lining the street? Events like this are popular with photographers sporting all sorts of cameras, including cellphone cameras. This photo of the Willowbrook High School marching band in Lombard's Lilac Parade was taken in the panorama mode with my iPhone 5 cellphone camera. When used like this, it bends reality a little, along with the street, but I think it is an interesting effect, so I chose it for the Perspective column.
