Manchester City Games
The Manchester City Games were held today - May 25th, and will be followed by the BUPA 10K run on the 26th - the games though were all about running, jumping, and pole vaulting.
It was hard for me to be everywhere all at once, but I managed to bag all of the long jump, and all of the pole vaulting. I did shoot the races last year, so tried to concentrate on things I hadn't shot before.
What I did find was that the main challenge was not so much the athletes themselves, but the light - it was dull and shady in the morning - meaning I needed a high ISO to keep the shutter speeds up, and harsh sunlight in the afternoon, meaning I had to control the amount of light that was coming into the camera, without compromising the image.
Anyway, it was an experience I hope to repeat in the none too distant future....
