“I was exhausted throughout school,” says Mr. Oakley, now 33. Oakley has “delayed sleep phase syndrome,” which in his case is genetic (it can also be caused by head trauma). My pictures were nice, but I thought I needed to expand my abilities. I picked up a book called “The Complete Guide to High Dynamic Range” by Ferrell McCollough and I was hooked by the photos!

Suspicions about the Astros, and other MLB teams, have been whispered about around the game for years. The Blue Jays a decade ago were accused of utilizing hotel rooms overlooking the field at Rogers Centre to relay information, and Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow, a former big league pitcher, said on the air in 2013 that Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki looked like he was never fooled by a pitch in Coors Field. “I swear he’s getting signs,” Krukow said on KNBR radio.
