Today I did a live demo lab. Lighting large areas with one or two strobes and remotes. I love live demos, they usually have a failure, but this one didn’t. I set my camera on a tripod and used a remote and talked students through light placement and exposure.
Halloween Cyclocross in Winston-Salem. Costumes in the women’s Open 1,2,3 race. After riding a bus for 12 hours, and sleeping for 6 hours, I decided I should get up and race. The course was set up at the Children’s Home (I missed this race last year due to injury) and was a great course, off camber turns and punchy climbs. I had a great start and was running top 20 for the first half but started fading and then fell like a rock. I finished 35th of the 61 finishers but I am pleased with the day. Another awesome lunch at Bob’s Big Gas Subs & Pub.
Up before the sun to take Steph to the MegaBus pickup and then I walked around awhile photographing the city as it woke up. Then I grabbed Sam and Deb and we hit the road before bus left for NC at noon. One visit was FAO Schwarz, watched the toy soldier open the store and were one of the first to play on the large piano.
