Douglas Magno is a Brazilian photojournalist shooting the games for “O Tempo”, a newspaper from Belo Horizonte, the capital of the state of Minas Gerais:
“Without a doubt, Track Cycling is one of the most exciting sports to cover during the games. It gives me room to use different techniques while shooting to produce images that show speed and demonstrate excitement.
The photographers’ positions are located a few centimetres from the track and provide a great view. Competitors race by so closely that every moment is special.
To produce a conceptual and exciting story, I shot using low shutter speed in some images to reflect the high speeds and make the emotion more real to the readers”
