No matter how much you prepare for an assignment you can never truly be ready.
When I was assigned to shoot an early morning triathlon I was ecstatic. A whirlwind of imagery came into my head. Almost all involved the swimming portion of the race. Naturally, the swimming portion was canceled due to a high level of bacteria in the lake.
Getting over the initial disappointment I was able to quickly evaluate the course and come up with new positions and new areas to make photographs. Overall I am happy with my take and felt the above image really worked for the event.
Until next time, take care!
