I had a blast a couple of weekends ago being my husband’s personal photographer at this crazy 5K race at the NH Motor Speedway in Loudon. Since he’s been doing a lot of 5Ks and half-marathons over the past year, I’ve tagged along to snap photos and normally it’s a very low-key event. But the Renegade Playground Challege was a total guy thing (although there sure were a lot of ladies participating too!). Everybody had so much fun getting muddy, scraped up, falling down, and otherwise going nuts with a 3 mile long obstacle course comprised of swamps, mud, tires, stuff to climb on and crawl under…..etc! And there was beer and barbecue too! Yay!
I’m calling this one “Beefcake in TuTu”. I love this guy!
As a photographer I loved these shots because I got to have a lot of fun with the editing. Normally what I do is all very clean and pretty and geared towards children and families and of course where there are women involved you gotta make them look lovely. But in this case I got to do some dirty processing, very masculine, and not worry about anybody’s expectations except for my own.
