It’s dark outside, theres 230 swimmers and theres going to be fireworks. Getting there early so haven’t started to setup yet. Two cameras one for me and one for a timelapse of everyone, hope it works out well.
Setting up the timelapse camera took me a little while to find the best location, but got it sorted after a few tries. From there I left it running over the course of the evening to take lots of photos of the 230 swimmers! Upon getting home I quickly sorted out the time lapse and uploaded it to facebook for all to see, much like I do with my star trails but a bit more work to make it look just right.
Down at the shore line / finish I had my strobist setup ready for everyone to come running out the water. There were a lot of people for a 500 meter swim, even though it took less than an hour for people to finish it felt like hard work for me. Say that I did get some great photos!
