    My brother had told me he was competing in a triathlon earlier last week which was to be held this past Saturday. I have been lacking in sports/action photography and I needed this so bad. I jumped at the chance and I packed up the gear, and headed out with him 8am Saturday morning.

    Here are 15 I've selected out of the 120 total that I had pulled out from the 700 shots taken that day:

    All of these were taken with the 70-200 2.8 in either Av or Tv mode.

    I learned a lot that day, and it was mostly to trust myself instead of experimenting and thinking the camera can take a better shot than I can. Also learned that one needs to get out of the house more. I had been shooting under studio lighting pretty much non-stop since I got my strobes that I had forgotten how crappy sunlight can be in the middle of the day with no clouds. :(

    I will know for next time, however, and from talking with my brother it seems next time will be in 3 weeks! I can't wait!

    For the curious and/or bored, all of the shots can be found at:
