Hello and Welcome to my second year of posting some of my photography from the First Union/USPRO Cycling Championship held in Philadelphia on June 9, 2002.
This year's batch seems to be very good, with a wide variety of riders and at many places on the course that we don't often see. I hope that you will find them interesting as well.
For the tech folk out there, everything was shot on a twenty year old Canon F1 that is slowly falling apart. (The shutter release came apart early in the race, but I managed to fix that.) Manual focus with a 300mm Tamron, 50mm f1.2 Canon FD, and 24mm f2.8 FD. For the first time, I did not shoot Kodachrome and used instead some Ektachrome 200 and Fuji 800 print film. Scans were done on a Minolta QS-35 and moderate touch-up (mostly color) done with Photoshop.
