Burpee love…

The Crossfit open season for 2016 is drawing to a close…. I have enjoyed being part of the crossfit community and been lucky to be able to photograph some of the workouts… This year saw Burpee’s in two of the workouts… I’m not sure if its my hate of actually doing the burpee but it took me a while to find a way of successfully making images of them… Get low… or get high… wait for the inevitable pain-face or look of despair… include people around the action…. all fairly basic photographic techniques…. so I guess my “Burpee-hate” ran a little deeper than I thought…. At least I got better by the end of the five weeks…



CF16.1

I have had a blast during the first week of the 2016 CrossFit season… Workout 16.1 was… well you will see from the images… I attempted doing it RX. Failed miserably… just couldn’t lock my elbow-out… Did the scaled version and cruised through, should of taken it more seriously, I even considered submitting my RX score, but I would of felt as though it was unfair on all those who pushed themselves through the scaled version… rather annoying that the scaled version is NOTHING like the RX…. but then again, CrossFit doesn’t cooperate.

Watching teenagers, masters and everyone in between… as well as elite athletes supporting each other one moment and competing against each other the next is what CrossFit is all about…


I guess I am a bit of a dinosaur…. I am still making images with manual focus lenses… and, wait for it…. manual exposure…. I would however like to see if the improvements to AF in the new Nikon D5 are as good as the hype… if Nikon are listening… And to Zeiss: Otus… send me the Otus lineup to put through its paces… please…
