Gearing Up For Amgen 2010

With Amgen Tour of California, just a couple of weeks away on Monday May 17th, I thought I would share this 2008 photo from downtown Santa Rosa taken as the racers arrived.

The SoCoPhoGro (Sonoma County Photography Group) is meeting up to shoot this years event. Do you have a camera and want the opportunity to shoot at moving targets? Sign up and join us – it’s FREE!

Also, check out my Panning Technique article for tips and tricks on panning fast moving objects.

For this type of event I like a low profile shot, so I got as close and I could get to the ground without actually laying down and shot up as the riders approached.

Don’t forget to look for the photo within the photo. This one makes a great banner photo for an article.
