I will admit that I have camera envy when I go to these events and see all the huge lenses. Would I ever love to have a press pass so I could take my camera equipment in.
To see what a difference there is with my 24/70 zoom compared to my 70/200mm lens, look at these two photos of Nick Faldo getting prepped for tv. These were shot across the fairway of the 11th, at amen corner.
Hope you enjoyed this "behind the scenes" tour!
