I went to a bike race and . . .
It was my 1st time shooting a sporting event at night and this was especially tricky because of the speed involved since there were 2, 5K running races that preceded the bike race (30K = 18.6 miles) on single speed (fixes/track bikes). A truly exciting experience and a shout-out to that cute "down-under" couple I met, she was from Australia studying law at NYU and he was from New Zealand.
Red Hook in Brooklyn seems to be a very hipster "place to be" along with Brooklyn as a whole taking on the prominence Manhattan used to have. Lots of young, good-looking, fit, smart and friendly people here.
So, I came for a bike race and bumped into a sunset - not bad for my 1st sports night shoot.
