For years I have blamed this on the craptastic talents of race photographers. But I am beginning to think it's just me. You can decide.
|Here's a photo taken the day before - see I look normal, right?|
|Okay so what's happening here? Why do I always look so bizarre? The only good thing in this photo is that my leg muscles look pretty awesomely strong.|
|And here I look like I'm power walking. What's up with that. I could have been walking actually but I think I would have been making less of a "poopie" face. I am pretty sure these are the least flattering tri shorts ever designed. (sigh).|
Okay so apologies to the photographer for stealing these craptastic photos from your website. But actually I'm not sorry. I'm sure others will buy photos - but not me and it's not really about your talent. Well maybe some is. As someone who used to make a living selling photos I actually do buy race photos. So should you stumble onto my blog and want to give me a hard time about not buying them here are some tips. 1. In the bike photos - show some more of the bike. 2. Don't cut off the feet of runners. This is actually photo 101 (I'm not kidding - this is something taught in photography lessons) either make it a close up or show the whole body. Definitely not the mid-foot ankle chop you did here. In other news good work on tagging all the photos with bib numbers that must have taken forever. Its a hard job race photos because there's like zero money in it and long hours. I get it - thanks for putting in the time.
New goal for Nautica try to look a little cuter in the race photos :-)
