I have a true love/hate relationship, although mostly hate, with race photos. This weekend I’m running the Syracuse Half Marathon that means some new gems to add to my collection or OMG I hope no one recognizes me in this photo!
I’ve never really taken a GREAT race photo. I have some that are ok but most of the time I get caught walking, panting or in mid conversation with my mouth wide open.
This one has always been my favorite taken a few years ago. I like it because I’m not really the focus of it. The man in front of me is and he is making a fabulous face!
I want to have ONE picture where I look like I am conquering the race rather than getting the floor mopped with my body!
This one was kinda cool mainly because I had no idea there was a camera there.
I’m beginning to wonder is the joy of race pictures the fact that you look bad and you know it, but it’s great proof you did something cool!
I’ve found my favorite photos from races tend to be the ones I take myself before or after the event:
Question of the day: Do you have any great race photos? What are your favorite race images?
