First Shots of the race
Posted By: rmtagg, 04-26-2008, 11:21 AM

Look at how young some of these kids are! There was a 1, 2 & 5 mile race to raise money for the fight against cancer. It was a long day but I enjoyed shooting the run. This was my first attempt at anything like this. I usually shoot flowers which are, er, um, well grounded and not moving that much, lol. So I have to figure out how to get these pics more crisp during the next run.
Off for a nap so I will be nice awake for the gallery opening tonight. This will be the 3rd gallery the guy owns that is going to hang my work

Perhaps get in a littler closer, either physically or via a longer lens. Perhaps lower your shot a bit so the sky takes less of the frame.

Looks like a good time.

I would definitely get down lower, maybe take a lightweight folding chair with me which would help with stability. I would definitely use a zoom to get close up occasionally. Those stones on the side of the road in the last picture looked like an accident waiting to happen, I hope none of the runners took a tumble on them.

Yeah, especially near the end of the race. Tells more of a story, shows the pain they are going through for a good cause, possibly inspires more people to dig deep in to their pockets or try it themselves.

Played a bit

Rosemary,

I hope you dont mind but I played with your pic just a bit.. I was trying to get some of the background noise out of it... I dont know if this works better or not.. but here it is just in case....

i adjusted the curves, balanced out the contrast just a bit and then reduced the noise level.

Nice series, RM....the first 2 are my faves. I think the first shot may have an edge because the framing of that shot really tells the story.

Nice PP on that later shot, Kim. What software did you use to reduce the noise?
