Former baseball player Chien-ming Wang and his photos
Former Taiwanese baseball pitcher Wang Chien-ming is set to hold his first photo exhibit in late March.
A photo exhibit called “Wang’s Life” is set to open in the southern city of Tainan on March 27. The exhibit features photographs taken by Wang Chien-ming, the former pitcher for the New York Yankees who is currently a pitching coach in Taiwan.
Photography is Wang’s hobby. He took Cheap Baseball Jerseys pictures of nature, historical buildings, city streets, and of course, baseball fields.
But how did Wang develop an interest in photography? Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Wang said it started when photojournalists took pictures of him after he arrived in the United States. One day, Wang thought to himself: why not trade places? What would it be like if he were the one snapping photos?
Wang said that while playing baseball can be a nerve-wracking experience, taking pictures is more relaxing and can be done slowly.
Wang doesn’t have a preference when it comes to subjects, though he has found taking pictures of children interesting and even touching. The father of two sons said he takes more photos of his kids than other subjects, which allows him to have more interaction with them.
