The great baseball photographer Walter Iooss Jr. once said: "Every shot has a story."
It's time to tell your story, and it could mean two free game tickets or a Samsung Galaxy SIII phone.
Major League Baseball fans are invited to submit and share their baseball-themed photos @MLB on Twitter, using the #SamsungMLB hashtag. That will make you eligible for a chance to be selected as the Samsung Super Fan of the Day.
MLB.com's 30 real-time correspondents around the Majors are using their Samsung Galaxy SIII phones to share pictures and tweets from inside each ballpark, and now they are encouraging you to do the same. You'll be prompted to do this from official club Twitter accounts as well.
Each Super Fan of the Day will win two tickets to a game of her or his favorite team, as well as a free Samsung Galaxy SIII phone. Weekly winners will be highlighted on the MLB Facebook page.
Keep an eye on the Cut4 (www.cut4.com) page sponsored by Samsung, as MLB.com will be encouraging fans to send a picture for whatever specific topics are being tweeted out that day. Throughout this campaign for your content, there will be one winner each day on @MLB, and one winner each week on all 30 official club accounts.
All of the photos shared throughout the season by fans and the 30 MLB.com real-time correspondents will live in a Samsung Galaxy SIII photo album on MLB's Facebook page, as well as on the Samsung Galaxy SIII Facebook page.
Now that you are probably going to be shooting a lot more baseball photos, get some ideas by digging through the great shots from Getty Images at MLBPhotos.com. It features some of the best action, player portraiture and ballpark-atmosphere shots in the business.
"If I miss something, I feel bad," Getty photog Elsa Garrison said in a story last fall about shooting baseball. "Hopefully, people who look at these pictures are appreciating great photography and the work everybody does."
The second half of the 2012 MLB regular season is about ready to resume, and there should be even more great photography to appreciate as even more fans share their images. There will be a lot of stories to tell.
