Foot Traffic

  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

    "There was a witch, in Williams-Woodland," my husband said. "Don't you remember her?" My reply was a blank stare.
  • In the bag
    I have my number - 14182. I have my shirt ... and luggage tag, magnet, pen, requisite goodies. I also have a coupon for a $1 drink at Parkview Field after the race tomorrow. Note to self:

Shooter's Comments:

I shot photos for the newspaper article and a video all at the same time while covering a gospel concert at Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church Sunday. I put one video camera on a tripod to capture a whole song. I then shot video at different angles and grab some quick still images, too.

As with any music videos the hard part was matching up the second video from different angles to the main video. Mouths and action have to match. Even people clapping along with the music had to match.

Unfortunately, I was unable to provide the whole song because our website doesn't handle videos over 4 minutes.
