    I was hired by Shimano to do video and still photos for their athletes competing in the Ironman world championships on Kona Hawaii. I decided to do a close up portrait series as a way to capture their intensity leading up to the event. All these were shot with the GFX 50S and 110f2 @f2. This camera continues to blow me away every time I use it. I will continue to update this as the event goes on.

    Edit....trying to embed from Flickr on mobile sucks. Any suggestions?

    There's nothing I don't like in these portraits. Color, lighting, poses, camera position, backgrounds, expressions, contrast..all very appealing. I really like the soft fall off of the DOF in these as well. Thanks for posting.
