Connie Cycling Foundation Training Future Champions

There are so many specialties in photography, viewers are generally not aware of what it takes to get. that. shot! Having only shot inside a velodrome once before, for Connie Cycling Foundation (CCF) a few weeks prior to this shoot (photo blog), I was eager to get back to the oval and see if I could outperform the earlier session with different camera settings and a more educated eye for composition. I think it worked! 😉

Shooting with only the available fluorescent lighting presented some challenges, but the riders were having fun, and that’s what counted most in these photos, which are to be used in promotions and advertising for the foundation.

CCF trains cyclists at the StubHub! Center in Carson, California which, along with the LA84 Foundation, is a Youth Cycling Program Founding Partner.
