Today, I shot photos of the Porirua Grand Traverse for Marathon Photos. I shot the starting area with the Mountain Bikers heading off the blocks. There were about 500 or so that I saw. I then had time to go get breakfast at Denny’s before heading over to the coast to cover the run.
This is where I ended up shooting:
The view from the beach looking back to land:
And looking back out to sea.
Another issue was the light on the runners was really harsh. I set up a couple of lights hanging off the cliff aiming back into the shaddow areas of the runners. This worked well to fill in the shaddows, especially under the caps. One issue was that the beam of light was quite narrow, meaning I had to get the shot quickly. Another solution would be to have more lights set up along the cliff, giving more options.
