Day 3 Sneak Peak: http://blog.andrewsnucins.ca/?p=230


Finally managed to get the fill flash right on the triathlete coming out of the water. One flash at +1 EV at 1/200th of a second F8. ISO 200. Took FOREVER to get that photo.

Those shoes are called Vibran Five Fingers. I own a pair and absolutely love them. Greatest bare-foot running trainer shoe ever.
