USA Pro Cycling Challenge stage 6

On Sunday I drove down to Golden, Colo. to watch the final stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. I got there early and hiked up the mountain with my cousin, two cameras, a 300 mm lens, a couple chairs and a cooler. We staked out a spot above on the of the switchbacks to watch the riders. I’m a fan of cycling after growing up watching Lance Armstrong. It was very cool to see some of the riders I recognized from the Tour de France as they spend by climbing Lookout Mountain. I was hoping the riders would be a bit more spread out as is the case with most of the mountain stages of the TdF. However, the riders were staying together in a peloton for the most part, making it difficult to identify and shoot the contenders as they sped by. I saw Frank Schleck at one point and had him in my viewfinder until a crazed fan ran in front of me.

The cyclist and the shadow

Shot an on-the-fly portrait today of John Cox, who is competing in the time-trial and road-race cycling portions of this year’s Wyoming Senior Olympics. Didn’t have much time to think up an idea so I decided to try a shadow technique I had seen used before for a portrait of Lance Armstrong. I used fishing line to hang the front wheel from his time-trial bike to the ceiling while the reporter who wrote the story, Alex Riley, held the wheel in position using the line. After going all summer without touching our studio lights, it seems like I’ve shot a lot of portraits as of late. I shot a few of University of Wyoming football players this weekend that I’ll post later after they are published.
