The Secret to Taking Great Race Photos

I'm pretty impressed with myself. The last few races I've run (minus the CLE marathon) I've ended up with some a.w.e.s.o.m.e. race photos.


I also have some pretty terrible ones.

I look like I am dying. 

And yes, I am wearing the same clothes in both of those pictures...but they're not the same race. 

Still, I actually have more awesome pictures than not awesome pictures.

So what is my secret? You ask. 

I'll tell you, but you have to keep this between us. Because not everyone knows the secret. Case in point:

My secret to taking GREAT race photos is.......

know where the cameras are

Alllriiighht, you are all going "well, that was pretty anti-climactic".

I'm seriously though, if you can locate the cameras, you can make sure you look good when you check in on your race photos a few days later. Trust me, it's worth it. Not only that, but camera-watching might help keep your mind off a particularly tough race. 

It's win-win. 

Do you take great race pictures or awful ones? Do you have any tips for taking good pictures?

Happy Smiling!
