On your mark… Get set…

Go!2015-5k-poster)This is this year’s sponsor poster for the Chalfont Challenge (poster layout courtesy of the borough), and the final race in the Bucks 5K Series.  This was my fourth year (5th if you count the time a actually ran jogged it) that I have been a part of this event.  So what’s so different this year from previous… me.  I’ve learned a few new skills since I started shooting this race and even more paramount, to me, is the comfort level I have reached interacting with and photographing people.  For the first time, I think it’s about 50/50… oh okay, maybe 60/40, candid shots (I do love catching the runner in mid air) and those shots where I’m actually engaged in and engaging the subject… from sponsors, to volunteers, to families, and to think all I had to do was ask… “can I take you picture?”

Til next time,

Chalfont 5K

No, I am not running the 5k – I have hung up my running shoes.    It looks like this will be my next exhibit opportunity!  A friend, former classmate, and Chalfont resident has asked me to do a photography exhibit with him.  And!  to defer costs, he’s arranged to for us to photograph  the event in exchange for the fees charged to vendors at the event.  To be honest, I am looking forward more to getting a chance to photograph the event.  I had so much fun photographing a race in CT last 4th of July.
