Baltimore Sun community papers’ photographers were out again this past week capturing moments from high school sports games. Here’s a collection of shots from the second week of sports in Howard, Harford and Baltimore counties.

Baltimore Sun Media Group photographer Jen Rynda has a reputation for her sports portraits, or “sportraits,” as she calls them. When local high school athletes are selected as either a player to watch for the upcoming season, or the editors’ choice for player of the year, Jen is sent to spend some time with that athlete to photograph them. She often tries to capture them in a way that is not only artistic, but also shows off their athletic prowess.
The set-up is elaborate, the process tedious, and Jen is meticulous. So, we thought it would be interesting to time-lapse her setting up and shooting athletes at the end of the spring 2014 season.
Click through the gallery to see some of her sportrait shoots over the past two years, and watch the video below to see how the magic happens.
From Howard County to Baltimore County to Harford County, photographers for the Baltimore Sun’s community papers cover many high school sporting events each week. Here is a roundup of some of the best sports action shots from the week of Saturday, April 19 through Friday, April 25.

The Howard County Times, part of the Baltimore Sun Media Group, has started a new summer video series called Sports Breakdown. In each installment, one of our sports reporters will team up with Howard County high school athletes to teach them (and you) how to do what they do best.
In our first installment, Howard sports editor Brent Kennedy gets a lesson in hitting fastpitch softball from River Hill High School’s Kinsey Johnson and pitcher Sabrina Curtiss, who led county this spring with a 0.89 ERA.
