Sports photography is something I guess you could say I fell into. When I took a job in communications at the USEA, I found myself wielding a camera with not much clue how to use it. I still feel like that sometimes, but I have been lucky to have a lot of great mentors (and YouTube) to show me the way. As more of a “right brained” person, photography often feels creatively out of my league, but every once in a while I find magic. (You know what they say about blind squirrels…)
Over the weekend I followed the four-star competitors around the cross country course at Bouckaert Farm. Take a tour around to see the venue from my perspective.
For some real skill, please visit Liz Crawley Photography, the official photographer for the weekend. She had an amazing crew out shooting, and should have galleries up shortly.
