This was an incredibly quick and off-the-cuff shoot we did with a local athlete I knew who was up for creating some images quickly one evening. I had never shot trail running before and had this epic image in my head that I wanted to try and make come to life. Unfortunately, we hit a bit of a drought and the area we shot in that evening was a little darker than I had hoped it would be, but we created something with what we had anyway.
Here is a quick look on how I trek back into the woods when I’m photographing Trail Running, what I like to use when I’m back there, and how to position yourself to try and make the best of a tough situation. Never be afraid to get a little gross (and trust me, the water was absolutely disgusting) in order to find the right angle and capture something interesting!
