I recently had two assignments for RE Magazine and it reminded me that I never blogged about this assignment when it got published. This assignment was the cover story, so naturally I got the cover shot, although that's not always the case.
This shoot was challenging for a couple reasons. First of all we needed to reschedule because she had fractured her foot while running. Which led to the next challenge, I needed to shoot around her foot brace.
Part of my triathlon training is participating in organized group rides. This particular ride, The Jackson County Brevet, is organized by our head cycling coach and raises money for Aplastic Anemia. A cause that hits close to home as his wife has been living with this disease for many years. Our club comes out in big numbers to show our support. I brought along the Kodak PlaySport camera. It shoots stills and video.
It's been severals week since I wrote up a blog post. I've been working on a couple projects that have taken up some time and since I'm ramping up my training for my 2nd Half Ironman next month, there seems to be little time left to blog. Keeping with the triathlon theme, today's blog is from a triathlon I shot back in May.
I think this has to be the work I'm the proudest of since I started doing photography. It has nothing to do with how I used lighting (actually it was all natural light except for the group photo below) or how I used gear to capture these images. It's about the moments, faces, emotions, reactions, and interactions between an incredible group of individuals.
The GOYA shoot returns. For those of you just tuning in for the first time, GOYA stands for, Get Off Your A$$. I didn't coin the term, but liked it when I heard it from Zack Arias. Basically, it's when I give myself an assignment or just shoot for myself. It's always a learning experience, fun and keeps my skills sharp.
