Gym Time

After the past couple of weekends photographing these young gymnasts, I’ve got some newfound respect for these athletes!

Just watching them practice over and over and over, again and again and again, flip after flip after flip, jump after jump after jump, and seeing their determination to get it right was phenomenal! And then after at least 4 hours of doing that (not to mention some of them doing this up to 6 days a week) to take photos with a smile on their faces and an eagerness to do some more (and get it perfect) is nothing short of amazing!

So from now on I vow to stop complaining about going to the gym for an hour and just go. Well… I’m gonna try at least.

… and for those that want to know the geeky photo stuff:
Camera and Lens: Canon 5D MkIII with a 70-200mm f2.8L IS set at f/8, 1/160, ISO 800, 80mm.
Lighting: 2 580EXII with 36” umbrellas, one on each side behind talent @ ¼ power triggered by Pocket Wizard PWIIs.
