US Pro race photos

Road 5

I finally got around to uploading some of my US Pro time trial photos to a Flickr set. Pictured here are three shots of Dave Zabriskie, Tom Danielson, and Christian Vande Velde from the race on Saturday. I should be able to get my road race photos uploaded soon and I will update this post when I do. Bear with me; after I finish playing around with all the pictures that I took this past weekend, I will get back to regular design related posts.

Updated 9/4: I posted my photos from the road race into a new set. In general, I think the time trial shots came out better, but there are a few good ones in the road set. Most importantly though, I am learning a lot each time I photograph a race. On that note, I just want to give a quick thanks to Ken, Olivier, and Clay who have helped me out with tips and advice as I have started to take more of an interest in photography. Shooting races is tough, but I also think it is addictive.

    DeRosa, Cannondale, Fuji, and now we see Cervelo. Man, Rock Racing carries more brands than your LBS.

    -p, I was wondering about the Cervelo on Saturday before I saw the two Fujis in the road race on Sunday. I though meybe it was a borrowed bike or one he personally owned, but it did seem strange.

    Spokejunky, I have a Nikon D50- definitely low end as far as DSLRs so. I was using a cheap 70-300 5.6 zoom for all of these. I would like to get a better lens with a lower aperture, but they are pretty expensive. For now I’ll just keep pushing to do better with the equipment that I have.

    Thanks Ron and Luca, glad you like the shots. I still need to finish sorting the road race ones. maybe tomorrow.
