The Agile Fox Friday Foto – 12.14.2012

After a year and a half of including a ‘pic of the week’ at the end of my weekly training summary, I’ve decided to let it stand as a post of its own.  I’m also implementing a rule that the Friday Foto needs to have been taken sometime in the last week.  No recycling.  I am doing this to keep me engaged in building my photography skills, and to make me work harder to get fresh shots.  Click here to see my previous Friday Foto posts.

Published.

I am bending my own rule a little bit by posting a shot that was taken outside of the previous week.  The magazine did arrive a few days ago, though…

This is the first photo I have had published in a magazine.  It is a great reminder of the fun day I had shooting the Bear Chase 50M/50K race in late September at Bear Creek Lake Park near Morrison, CO.  It was actually the first running event I attempted to photograph.  While I didn’t get any direct reward out of it, the intangibles have been great.  Getting a reward is not my focus anyway, trying to take good pictures is.

Of course Dustin made for a great subject which made my job easier.  Not looking too shabby for being on mile 28!

I enjoyed the process of working with Tia at Ultrarunning, starting with a cold-contact and going all the way through the specs needed for print.  It was a good learning experience and I look forward to doing it again!
