p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · How about some Rhythmics Gymnastics?


It's been a long while since my last post...Covered the once a year Rhythmic Meet this weekend. These kids were incredible!

Shot with D4 and 70-200. I'm pretty sure all of them were at ISO12,800 and 1/1000. Quick selects out of 31k shots

Amazing...

Everytime I see one that's a fave, the next one is even better. Looks like a blast to shoot. #4 is one of those times where the off horizon works. Great job John.

John....awesome work here. 1, 5, 6 ,& 9 are top shelf and stand out for me. Others are excellent as well and as I look at #6 it appears like it's just a routine position for her to get into without any effort and maintain - with no discomfort at all. And the kicker is she's on the toenail side of her toes...WOW.

What type of surface are they on.....is it a wrestling mat...I can't really make it out.

John,
I gotta agree here. Each one I viewed was nicer than the one before. Nice work here!
6 & 9 really stand out to me!

Thanks all.

To answer some of the questions...

The floor is just heavy carpeting. It wasn't like artistic gymnastics with springs.

I used 21 dynamic AF, seems too work pretty well

Unlike artistic gymnastics you can shoot all 4 rhythmic events with a single shooter vs 2 shooters for 2 events at artistic meets. But it really took a lot out of me to shoot 30k shots over the 2 1/2 days with about 250 gymnasts. This is about the same volume as a 500-gymnast meet with 2 shooters.

Thanks again!

-John

Nice shots! I've never been to one of those meets so I don't even know what the events are but it certainly looks like a great event for photography.

Beautiful work John!

Business aspects aside, I'm curious as to which type of gymnastics you prefer shooting? Which is easier?

I'm guessing rhythmic for both questions (so I'm probably wrong).

Thanks! I do prefer artistic slightly over rhythmics. Both require the same amount of attentiveness and anticipation, but with different timing. So I wouldn't say one is easier (or more difficult) than the other, they're just different.

From business perspective rhythmic is easier from logistics and financial perspective. One shooter can shoot everyone on all 4 events, where as artistic I would need 2 shooters and cover only 2 events. But the lone rhythmic shooter will end up with the same volume of shots and the days are at least 14+ grueling hours, kind of like a shooting marathon
