Superb shots Scott!
Two days in and it's becoming an exercise in frustration, not with shooting but working with the schedule person I'm working with, she's new and seems to think that pictures appear without thought or preparation. She is a spread sheet fanatic, revising them all day. She seems to think that it's easy running to a venue and shooting one athlete, running 30 minutes to the next another athlete and back to the original venue for someone else. Many of the photo positions are closed prior to the event. I have tried to explain this, and in the end, just did my own thing,
Here's a few from the back streets. In spite of the police presence they are friendly and helpful, there is a great atmosphere all around. I shot these on the way to opening ceremony.
Capturing a lot of emotion there! Thats what its all about.
Absolutely fabulous work. Extremely impressed.
The second and fourth photos from the ceremonies are awesome. Well, they all are really, but those are particularly interesting and unusual. You always seem to get such good photos too of individual athletes that show the emotion of the event.
Real helpful of them to hire someone to schedule photographers who doesn't seem to have a clue how said photographers cover an event...
Temperatures are starting to go up now, +33c, just over 90F, tomorrow is suppose to be in the high 30's, so over a 100f, the walks start to get longer, 14km(8.6 miles) today hauling around the gear. I've grown some nice blisters on my feet, went and saw the Canadian team doctor the other day who patched me up, but it wasn't doing much, went the duct tape way and taped my toes up, not pretty but it works.
I shot all this stuff in the last 24 hours thanks to Canon loaning me a 600m, first time using it to shoot swimming, took some getting used t0, but what a great lens. Enjoy the pictures.
Very nice, thanks for sharing. Hope your not having to drag the 600mm very far.
5 0r 6 miles a day.
Good stuff. Even though sports involving frozen water are more my thing I got to watching some of the swimming earlier. It was good tonight, they explained briefly how the swimmers are classified, etc. I don't know exactly how it's all determined but it was quite interesting.
