Over on The Halo Way, the official photo blog of the Los Angeles Angels, photographer Jordan Murph has put together an educational post on how he and team photographer Matt Brown use remote cameras during games and what you’ll need to set one up yourself.

Why use a remote camera for sports photography? Lots of reasons! “They provide us with different angles from our hand held cameras in case we get blocked,” Jordan writes, “and they can give a unique view from a location that is impossible to physically photograph from, or they can just provide extra coverage.”

Jordan walks you through their remote camera setup to capture the action at home plate. The Nikon D3 and 70-200mm lens is mounted to a railing using a mounting arm and super clamp and triggered using a PocketWizard MultiMAX.
