Another USA Gold Medal & Beach Party

I found my self back at the Royal Artillery Barracks for my shoot. This time for women’s trap qualifying and rifle qualifying and finals. Once management told me Jamie Lynn Gray from the USA is the number one rifle shooter she and will most likely win gold I instantly got excited. Anytime you have the chance to shoot someone for your country winning a medal especially gold it makes you realize how fortunate you are.

Once I arrived, I was off to the trap qualifying. Trick with photographing shooting is there isn’t very many angles you can work because you can’t be in front of them only to the side and behind them.

Next up was the finals for rifle shooting.

My creativity was really lacking today, so I turned my shutter down to 1/13 of a second and did a zoom blur.

After a few bullseye Jamie started separating her self from the rest of the shooters on her way to winning gold.

That wraps up another gold medal. Now I am off to shoot women’s beach volleyball. Two time gold medal winners Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor. They have a big story brewing so far her in London. If they go on to win gold it will be the first time ever that someone has won a three gold medals in beach volleyball. So I was sure to get some good stock of them for future sales.

Once I arrived at the venue there was some nice light and a clean court so I knocked off an overall.

One thing about the beach volleyball venue is they really get the fans pumped up, they have a dance team that performs every time there is stoppage in the game.

On with the game!

All of the fans where have a good time!

That wraps up a solid! Next up is the Olympic Audible!
