This past Saturday morning I volunteered to shoot photos for the 2014 Walk to End Alzheimer’s event in Peachtree City, GA. It was a chilly morning, but over 1000 walkers showed up to help end the Alzheimer’s disease. For this shoot I used my trusty Canon T1i and Canon 7D bodies and used a Canon 70-200mm f 2.8 lens and Sigma 18-200 f 3.4 lens. The 70-200mm lens turned out to be great for this event. It was cloudy that day and I was getting a bit frustrated using Canon T1i and Sigma combination because I was trying to shoot a cleaner image by keeping the ISO to 200 but the shots just kept being under expose. So what does a photographer do, keep calm and shoot on. It was a great turnout for a great cause and with the money raised, hopefully a cure for Alzheimer’s will be discovered soon.
Below is a shot of the Promise Garden. Each walk participant received a flower and the color of the flower represented a connection to Alzheimer's
Blue: is for someone who has Alzheimer's or dementia
Purple: is for the lost of a loved one
Yellow: is for someone supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer's
Orange: is for everyone who supports the cause and vision of a world without Alzheimer's
Finally I'll leave on the last shot below. For this event I took my GoPro Hero 3 camera. I was doing some testing with the GoPro app on my phone and got this shot of the Promise Garden. It was so nice to have a live preview on my phone while doing some testing. As the walkers cross the finish line, they saw the big Thank You banner.
