There is nothing more fun and healthy than doing sports, right? Especially, during competitions like a triathlon, where you do three types of sports: swimming, cycling and running. I was asked to photograph Antwerp Diamond Triathlon 2010 (ADT2010), that took place on 12 September 2010 in Antwerp (Belgium) obviously :). The organizer of this event was FM Team, a Belgian sports club based in Antwerp.
The weather unfortunately was really bad but I was prepared for it as a photographer. I was following closely the weather forecast already a week before the event and I tried to predict anything that could happen: from equipment failures to really bad weather. The latter one was particularly important as we all know what rain and water can do to photography equipment. The simplest way you can protect your camera in these situations is to buy a rain-sleeve. I got a couple of these from OP/TECH USA company before shooting Antwerp Diamond Triathlon 2010. This is a simple and an inexpensive way to protect your gear from both rain and dust.
When you shoot events (especially outdoor or in harsh conditions), try to be ready for any situation. I have a saying for such cases: "expected unexpected".
