Congrats to the 239 finishers of the Out of Hibernation 5K Road Race in Portsmouth, NH. The official race results can be found on Cool Runnings website. A subset of photos can be found on my website or by clicking on one of the photos below. I keep watching everyone run and want to join in. Maybe I’ll hang up the camera and just start running instead.
Getting back into the groove for 2012, I took my Nikon D700 and Nikon 70-200 out today as promised (from last weekend) and stuck it on monopod with the VR off. Much much better results this time. I also set the camera to manual, set the aperture to 7.1 and cranked up the shutter speed until my ISO hit around 400. Leaving it on auto ISO by targeting 400 gives me padding for the ISO to float up or down. That let the camera take care of the exposure for me, but I still shot shutter and aperture of my choosing.
