2010 USAF Clarendon Crit

A few weeks back, I got out to shoot the 2010 USAF Clarendon Crit in Clarendon, VA. It's one of my favorite local road races to shoot due to the vibe and location.

I didn't have press creds this year, so I wandered the field as a spectator with a camera. I tried coming up with different photo ideas, but in all honesty, this year's shots look pretty similar to last year's.

The one thing I did that was new and exciting for me was to shoot HD video using my Canon 7D. I didn't have a tripod with me, so the video is simply braced against a barrier, so it's a bit shaky, but for a first try, I dig it.

I haven't the faintest idea how to embed video in a blog post, so if you're interested in seeing a < 1 minute clip, go here:
