Here is another example of the possibilities in wet and nasty weather. This image was made in Salem at the Capital Criterium sponsored by OBRA. The event was set, the riders were ready, and despite 1-2 inches of standing water and driving rain on much of the course, the gun went off and the race was on. I like to experiment in situations like this so I thought I would do a series of panning shots. I remember shooting between 1/8th and 1/15th of a second for my shutter speed. What I love about this image is that you actually get a good sense of the crazy conditions and the competitive action that is going on. You can see the riders fighting for position and trying to maintain balance on wet, nasty roads. Remember that when the weather gets wet, magical things can happen!
I'm often asked if I miss shooting with film. In a word... No!
