Photo on Canvas is 2012 Photo of the Year for ESPN and Atlantic Magazine

by Eric Von Lehmden | January 15, 2013

Congratulations to 3 year old Christian Haupt and his family. A photo of Christian throwing out the first pitch at a Los Angeles Dodger's game was voted as one of the top photos of the year by both ESPN and Atlantic magazine. We were given the opportunity to print this timeless photo of Christian as a canvas print for the family. We couldn't agree more that this is one of the best images of last year. The photo was taken by AP photographer Mark J. Terrill and he should get all of the credit for grabbing this image...but the personality of the little big leageur is 100% Christian.

Here are the links to the two news sources that picked this image as one of the top photos of 2012:

And here is the fantastic photo:

Tips-n-Tricks #322

When taking group photos with your DSLR make sure your aperture isn't too wide (ie 2.8). This can cause for some people to be in focus and others to be slightly out of focus because of the depth of field. To be safe, make sure your aperture is at least at f4.5 or f5.6.
