This past weekend I headed over to Cincinnati for Red Bull City Swarm. It was held in downtown Cincinnati at Fountain Square. Red Bull City Swarm was the first of its kind in the red bull world! The concept behind it was bringing go cart racing in an urban environment. Really cool concept and event.
It was rather difficult to cover this event by myself. In addition, the track was large enough that I had to cover a lot of ground in order to get shots and I missed a lot because I was in a different area. Definitely a two person job.
Shooting with the 1d mark iv was so much better than the 5d mark ii. The frame rate and focus is amazing. I need to work on using those focus points because I find it like to center focus a lot. I primarily used the 24-70 2.8L and the 70-200 2.8L.
But it was still a fun day.
The bengals linebacker coach participated in the race too! Here he is looking all pensive and stuff. Look at the concentration on his face!

The only crash I got in a photograph. As I said, it was hard to cover because of the huge track. Right as I left a place, not a minute later a crash would happen at the place I was at previously.
I had to work with different types of lights and it very interesting getting different looks out of the images.
As you can see there were crazy amounts of contrast in lighting everywhere. This was on top of the macy's building.
