Olympics in Pictures

I wasn’t hugely interested in the Olympics from a sporting perspective. I’m more a Winter Olympics kinda guy. However, I’ve found myself enthralled by the lengths taken by photographers to capture the games.

The main entry point is Vincent Laforet‘s blog. He’s an experienced photographer and is sharing his thought processes as he covers the games for Newsweek.

Newsweek have taken an interesting approach and sent three photographers to shot the games and to blog about it. Their combined blog is here. This article is a good example of the kinds of information being posted. The editor also selects a photo for the day.

Reuter’s photo blog is also featuring an Olympic photo of the day from their photographers.

I’m learning a lot about sport photography and photography in general by reading through these, especially Vincent’s musings. I now have enthusiasm for the Olympics.
