Like I mentioned earlier in one of the posts about the trade secrets of the photographers working at the Olympics, some of the news and photo agencies can even publish around 2000 images a day, all of their photographers together probably made more than a million images during the games. Here I have a (far from complete) collection of their images.
Sports photography is mass production anyway, but especially at the Olympics that is the greatest of all photo mass productions. The events host the most and best sportsmen…
Looking at galleries of the winter olympics one might think that sports photographers captured everything from all possible angle. And then NASA publishes this little surprise: you can’t call it to be one example of aerial photography, not even a satelite image, because it was taken from the International Space Station.
Interesting news spread about a sponsor who wanted to mask out mobile phones made by its competition to make their advertisement more efficient on the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Their approach is interesting and the moral of the situation even more.
I only follow the events of the winter olympics from home but I don’t envy those colleagues who work on site in Sochi. Well, of course I envy their photos, but the tiring hard work and lots of challenges they face there is something I’m not envy for. My blog surely would stop if I would be shooting there. It already happened some times when I had a more intense work at hand.
Thankfully this is not the case with Jeff Cable who keeps posting from Sochi letting a snaek peek behind the scenes with it.
