I took a lot of pictures of this bike race last June in downtown St. Paul which is a gorgeous place for a race of any kind. I think one thing I am learning this summer is that a wide angle lens can be used to capture a sporting event . . .well at least a bike race.
I headed downtown Wednesday night to take some pictures. I had a small camera bag on the back of my bike with nothing in it except a camera with a wide angle lens. If I had known about the bike race I would have used my zoom lens, even the kit lens would have been a better choice. I made the most of it and decided to take pictures that could only be taken with a wide angle lens. It is a challenge to photograph bikes speeding by in the darker light between the buildings. I was able to move around and get some interesting angles. I actually had a lot of fun with it.
