Utah XC

"American Fork runner Austin West is smothered by his teammates including Danielle West (center) and Morgan Warner after finishing first place in the 2009 Utah UHSAA State 5A Boy's 3-mile cross country meet at Highland High School and Sugar House Park in Salt Lake City, Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2009."

Recently I shot the Utah state championship cross country meet in Salt Lake.

It was my second time covering cross country, or as they call it XC, and had an OK time shooting it.

I looked at images in our system of how photogs in the past shot it and I wanted to bring my own vision to the table and shoot completely different. From what I saw it was shot all vertical with a 400mm super tight last year.

With that in mind, I decided to shoot primary with a wide and focus more on reactions and moments rather than runners, well, running.

Although I think I shot it better my first time around in Baltimore County, I still thought these images told the story of the day: exhaustion, jubilation for Utah County and running.

Probably too many features in this edit, especially compared to my last time shooting.

Great low angle shot with the blur.

I like the different approach . . . especially #4.
