You can see Ironmen and women doing their routine training everyday during the year in order to get in shape, yet most of them are foreigners.

Local people mostly prefer to do other sports: soccer is very popular, but baseball also has a lot of amateur teams in Cozumel.

Tati s photo tip:
Go out and photograph sport activities. It s a lot of fun – especially here in Cozumel.
For sharp images use a fast shutter speed (min. 1/500) or the sport setting of your point-and-shoot camera.Fast lenses (f. 1.4 – f.2.8) help to keep working with a fast shutter speed, too.
Also using the flash minimizes motion blur.
Framing the photograph “wider” – providing more space around your object, helps keeping the action in your shot.

It s better to do a little cropping in post production.
