George Sheehan Classic

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by bvonarx, Jun 16, 2007.

  1. This annual race is in memory of a local doctor who really helped to popularised running back in the seventies. Elite runners to walkers all participate in the same field running the 5 mile course. Lucky enough for me I just rolled out of bed, grabbed a tea and my camera and walked to the end of my driveway. Your C and C welcome.

    These look real nice Brooks. It looks as though it was cloudy, so I wonder if a bit of fill flash could have made them "pop" a bit. The composition is nice because you were shooting from a lower vantage point. All looks fine, but just curious about your thoughts regarding a bit of fill.
  3. Actually it was a beautiful sunny morning. The street is lined with very tall trees which create the difuse lighting. I know what you mean about adding some "pop" by using strobe but I like the natural look and I'm not sure my SB600 could do the job. Thanks for the input, I'll give it a try and see how it looks.

    Happy Fathers day to all you Dads in Nikon Land!

    Great shots. Forget the fill IMHO. The exposures look good and you can get a little more snap adjusting curves in PP.

    I hope the photos of me this weekend turn out as well.

  8. I like 1666....she's not letting a little racing get in the way of her favorite tunes!

    Nice shots, Brooks.

    Did you do any 5 frames per second of 1666.....I think she has really good running form!
  10. Surprisingly enough I did shoot more than one frame but that one shows the subject in the best light.:redface:

    I'm sure it's not really what you're referring to, but she doesn't have good form. Too much twist at the hips and shoulders.

    I am referring to - she is an attractive lady. I am an old fat guy and wouldn't know good running form if I got up off the couch and stood closer to the t.v. during a marathon :)
