I’m back! And I’m gearing up to write a series of posts that I hope will turn into a solid tutorial for anyone wanting to shoot 5k(pick your distance) road races. There are a ton of nuances that turn luck into reliability. Camera settings, lens choices, sun angles, where to sit, how high/low to sit and panning are just a few important factors.
I typically can park, take photos of the start and finish of the race and be back in my car driving away and all wrapped up and done in less then an hour. To top it off, I have managed to get my skills up from being able to handle about 200 runners to about 600 to 800 runners a in a race. More coming soon…..
I’ve included some photos from two recent races, the Cigna/Elliot Corporate 5k Road Race in Manchester, NH on August 8th, 2013 and the 12th Annual Fox Point Sunset 5 Miler Road Race in Newington, NH on September 7th, 2013. More posts to follow soon.
