Akrun & Crawl: After Dark

Last weekend I shot the 10th annual Akrun and Crawl sponsored by TorchBearers - this year they changed it up a bit - they started the race at 9PM and it was a glow run. There were LED markers, flashing balloons, and glow sticks on everyone and everywhere. Taking photos had some unique challenges and I tried various techniques and flash combinations - but with my Canon 6D I still favored shooting natural light(street light when possible) with high ISO and the large f/1.4 aperture of my Sigma 35mm. I had my mono-pod with me and I used it with the self-timer to get some "from above" shots - such as the shot above. I also used it to stabilize the camera for some video clips(below). The 5K race was followed by a pub crawl at the Liberty Commons bars.

Here is a selection of a few of the hundreds of photos I took - TB posted more on their FB page.
