alkek velodrome. junior olympic finals. i had scouted and envisioned this image long before it happened. the velodrome is a super cool venue to start with. an outdoor cycling center with large banked walls 360 degrees. i think it may be the open air that makes it so nice. waiting for these atheletes to comes round again and again, only to get 1 shot off every time they pass, makes for some decisive moment shooting. (wait time for the strobes to recycle). the overall shoot was a total success, resulting in many optimum images, but for some reason, this one really set the tone for the racing. good things do happen if you wait. don’t they?
