Mel and I had the honor of being invited to the Jacksonville kid’s triathlon again this year. It was fun to attend before and this year was no exception.
It was also a great opportunity to photograph in adverse conditions. I wanted to test myself and see how I would do with my 70-200mm open all the way to f/2.8. After a while I stopped down to f/5.6, but it was a neat experiment.
This year it was MUCH harder to find a spot to photograph the kids where there weren’t heads, arms, and legs (of parents) in the way but I managed to get a few shots I liked. I noticed at least three other parents out there with the exact same lens I was using (see my photo gear page). That really surprised me because it ain’t a cheap lens.
