    I'll be shooting the Aflac Outdoor Games this weekend, which will be hosting the STIHL Timbersports series championships, and be filmed by ESPN. It's going to be hot as crap out there, but the events are really cool.

    today was a short demo for the press and media (which now includes me! :O) and I was basically just finding where some of the better shots would be taken from.

    Boom running is really cool, here are some shots of it. The first photo is two of the professionals, the one in the foreground is the reigning world champion.
    The three following that photo are of various reporters giving it a shot, and failing hard.

    you can watch the events on ESPN Friday, Saturday and Sunday, all day (live) from 1pm to 6pm EST. Maybe you'll see me down on the field! (I'll post what I'm wearing, if I remember to)

    Exif 'sez 5d but I don't know about the lens.
