Finally got some hot weather for the Memorial long weekend and the Mount Hamilton Road Race Sunday. I basically spent two hours testing equipment for France but captured a bunch of familiar faces while being eaten alive by swarms of biting midges. These images link over to the new VeloDramatic portfolio site where you can purchase prints directly. Thus far I've only transferred the most recent local race coverage, but I'll be uploading the Best of VeloDramatic in the next couple of weeks.
I'm liking the painterly feel of the higher-key, flash-assisted color work here. It's quite flattering and certainly helps even out harsh mid day light. Not a huge variety in the shots on offer though. I wasn't in the mood to work the hill too hard, and the Campus police are pretty sensitive about being there period, so I played it cool.
In the end the guys from Becher+ provided some terrific ink for a little edgier B&W treatment.
