Photo of the Week #116

January 30, 2012

My favorite photo from this past week was taken at a track & field event at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. I set my camera up on an Overxposed Mini Pro Plate a few feet behind the shot putters and used Pocketwizard transceivers to remotely blast away at 10 frames per second. I later sifted through the hundreds of photos and found this one of Adam Nelson, the Madison Square Garden all-time record holder in the shot put. Doesn’t it look like he’s dancing?

Photo tech specs: Canon 1D Mark IV camera, 16-35mm f2.8 II lens @ 16mm, f3.5, 1/640th, ISO 2500.
