It was a rainy day at the races last Sunday. I went anyway, intending to get some detail shots and maybe some indoor shots. The overcast sky did make for an evenly lit wide shot of the track, with no people in the foreground.

I decided to take photos of some track employees. Here are Michael and Luis behind the bar up at the Turf Club. Michael even knew what kind of camera I was using! This was shot at ISO 8000 and I needed to do some noise reduction on their black shirts.

This man works at the Information window, answering newbies’ questions.

Didn’t get a model release for this man; that’s a time saver. I wanted him to be just a silhouette framed in the opening.

Next Sunday will be my last trip to the track for this project. Ill see what my “client” has in mind for next steps.
