Swim Meet

If you have ever been to a swim meet you can identify with this image. I was trying to show just how complex a swim meet is. With the use of a 200mm telephoto lens I was able to compact several layers of activity at the starting blocks. When you use a telephoto lens objects seem much closer to each other than reality. This compacting of space by this lens adds to the real tension that exists at a swim meet. When using any lens, especially a telephoto lens make sure you follow the hand held rule to insure sharp images. The rule states that your shutter speed should match you lens length to avoid camera shake that causes unsharp images.
