We're working on several articles for all you budding photographers out there. . .for the time being, suffice it to say that even though mobile phones have made everyone a photographer in this day and age, you do need just a tad more sophisticated gear for great indoor cricket photography . . . and I deliberately say "just a tad more sophisticated" . . . great photos can be taken with modestly priced gear . . . just . . . ummm . . . well, like I said, just a tad more sophisticated than a mobile phone .

More soon.
