Little 500 Miss-N-Out

Couple weeks back, I shot a bit of Indiana University’s Little 500 Miss-N-Out cycling races while I was in town visiting friends from college. Although I shot a lot of stuff on my “normal” cameras, I also exposed three rolls on my Holga. With a couple days off from the daily grind, I finally got around to processing and scanning the negatives.

Little 500 Miss-N-Out

Spent a good chunk of time on Saturday shooting Miss-N-Out, one of the spring series events in the lead up to Indiana University’s Little 500. I shot most of the day primarily with a very cheap plastic medium format camera, but I also shot some stuff using my normal cameras. It was nice to be back in Bloomington, especially on a weekend featuring a Little 500 spring series event. I somewhat miss covering the crazy week leading up to the event and the races themselves.

The story of Emanon

For this year’s Little 500 race, I decided to take a different angle than usual. It was my fourth time covering the race as a student, and I wanted to try to tell the story differently. Instead of just focusing on the race-day peak action and reaction shots, I teamed up with a writer to tell the story of a single team in the race. We embedded with Emanon, a first-year independent team in the field. Emanon was formed by Alpha Tau Omega members after the school’s chapter was not allowed to compete in the race after an ethics board review and alcohol violations. I produced an audio slideshow, and fellow Herald-Times intern — and soon-to-be Chicago Tribune intern — Ryan Gregg wrote a narrative about the team.

Emanon team leader Derek Bailey adjusts his headband and helmut as he prepares for the team send off on Saturday, April 24, 2010, at the Alpha Tau Omega house. Several hundred members of ATO gather each year to send off the Little 500 team on the day of the race.

Men’s Little 500

I ended up only shooting the first half of the race. I had a fever and I was able to leave during a red flag for thunderstorms and lightning at lap 104/200. This was my fourth – and possibly last – time covering the race so I was disappointed to to be there for the finish. It will probably go down as one of the best Little 500 races in recent memory despite the rain. The Cutters’ Eric Young, pictured below, broke away from the pack on the last lap to secure the team’s fourth consecutive win.

Women’s Little 500

This was definitely one of the toughest assignments I’ve shot this year. It wasn’t because of emotional or technical reasons, but because I was feverish the entire day. I had been sick in the days leading up to the event, but I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to photograph the Little 500. I felt better as I headed out to the track, but by the end of the day I was at about 30 percent.
