This weekend marked another first for me, as I photographed my first track and field meet. My son just started this sport (adding to his hockey, swimming, basketball...) and asked me to bring the camera to their first meet. The great thing about photographing a meet like this is that there are so many different types of events happening, all of which present unique shooting opportunities.
1. I felt that the turn would provide a better image than a straight-on shot.
2. The sun was out in the morning and the light was better on this side of the track.
3. There were minimal distractions behind the runners in this area.
4. In the relay races, this is where the baton was passed, giving me more action.
