MyTriEvents: Fireworks 500

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!
