How to be a great photographer: "f/8 and be there"
Why I'm not a great photographer: That whole "be there" part.
I had nothing but good intentions of going to shoot the Greenbrier Challenge mountain bike race this past Sunday. Unfortunately, something came up and I wasn't able to make it.
Looking at local Flickr user extraFunky's shots of the event, there was some good shootin' to be had. Soft lighting, sloppy trails, muddy riders. Man. Wish I would have been there!
Hopefully things will pan out better for next weekend's 12 Hours of Lodi Farm race.
