#84 Student work

More photos from one of my student’s from the Sport Photo Workshop at the Italian Week Bike Crit over the weekend. James of James Knox Photography is featured today. Other student photos will be featured tomorrow!

Yesterday, I described the event as some of the most challenging shooting conditions for a photographer – lightning, driving rain, and limited shelter! The students did a fantastic job coping with the adversity!

The photos:

#83 Cycling event was a blast!

The cycling photo workshop was a blast – literally!

This weekend students photographed the annual Ottawa Italian Week Criterion Cycling event. Racers converged from afar to race for prize money and fame.

Both races had sunshine, driving rain and blasts of thunder & lightning. Students learned about the wild world of fast moving sports photography as well as managing gear (successfully) in wet conditions!
