Endurance Series

A series of portraits from the 3BGD HALF DISTANCE TRIATHLON

1.9 km swimming + 90 km cycling + 21.1 km running = 113 km total

 

This is a part of my endurance series I am working on. I set up the paper background and lighting next to the finishing line and invited the runners who finished the race for a photo shoot. Some declined, but most agreed, although terminally exhausted. Some of them knew about the shoot out beforehand, but most did not until I met them at the finishing line. I took the photos under a tree as the only logical place for my set-up and therefore had minor technical "problems" with the sunlight, as can be seen on the background and the faces of some of the runners. All in all, it turned out to be an interesting series of character photographs, even more so bearing in mind the ordeal they just finished.  Complete series available in my Personal project menu. Enjoy.
