Runners!


posted on 25th of march, 2008

Running is a huge passion for me. Last year, I was lucky enough to join a charity group that trains runners to complete endurance events while raising funds for cancer research. Thanks to my coaches, captains and team-mates, I completed the Marine Corps Marathon. I didn't set any land speed records, but I did crawl across that finish line. . .




Now, I am planning to photograph a marathon for other volunteers in the same program. I am excited, but also a bit apprehensive about this. I've done a bit of volunteer work for them before, but each event is very different. If I don't get the shot I want the first time, I really can't ask the runner to go back over that hill again while I get the lighting right!

Any tips from photographers who have photographed marathons and similar events before? I would love to hear them. . .

It did go well--thanks, Rebecca. I donated the shots to the runners for their own use. I think I got some good images.
