After my race was done on Sunday I stuck around for a few races and shot some pictures. I grabbed shots from the Single Speed / 55+ race and the Junior 17-18 / 45+ race.
It is always a cool learning experience watching others race, the range of abilities was incredible, but the motivation and pain in everyone’s faces seemed about equal.
When I was snapping pictures I started out letting the camera do all the exposure work, but later towards the middle of the Junior / 45+ race I tried setting for long exposures to play with that motion blur effect I see from time to time. I ruined a ton of pictures doing this, but I also caught some cool moments and I like how the blur adds more energy and impact to shots that feature it.
