Default A Some pics from NAMBA 11 Races in Connecticut 5-19-2012

Heres a handful of pics of the races I attended over the weekend. Not a huge turnout but weather was beautiful (and some wind to make the conditions interesting on course!).

I will have the rest of the pics uploaded over the next day or 2 (there are a LOT of pics). I will add the link once they are up!!

Those are some really great shots, because I'm a photog myself, what body and lens did you use?

Thanks Guys!!
ORIGINAL: kilr95ss

because I'm a photog myself, what body and lens did you use?
Canon 1D MKIII with a Canon 35-350mm f3.5-5.6 L
Canon 7D with Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L MKII

Was my first race with the 1D MKIII and the 70-200mm so it was a bit of a test day for settings etc. The 70-200mm is sharp when it hits but I had about a 10% OOF rate (was shooting f2.8 and 1/4000-1/6400 though - stop props at that speed!!). The 35-350mm is an older lens - not as sharp though still plenty and with the added zoom it gives plenty of options. I usually have around 1-2% OOF though it was shooting f5.6 and 1/500th.
Shot just shy of 3300 RAW pics - Just over 60gb

3300 RAW!!!!!! I shoot RAW for glamour/ portrait shots but not for sports, I know at least 75% of the action shots wont be keepers. I have the little brother 70-200L, the f/4, non IS [] on a 50D. Hoping a friend decides to get the 5D MKIII so I can take the MKII off her hands

Gotta go back through your other threads and check out the shots, keep up the good work.

Sounds like you might be the only one who can appreciate how many hours I have spent in Lightroom doing post since Saturday!!

5D MKII is great but felt like a step backward for me from the 7D. Not as fast as I would like but for Glam/Portrait work it is hard to beat. The 10fps from the 1D MKIII and compromise of a 1.3 crop was a better fit.

Good eye Byron. We have an open hydro class that you can run any hydro type hull, it has been a popular class in district 11. Matt - Thanks again for the pics, I appreciate all the efforts pal.

This album has all the pics I have uploaded from the race (not all award winning shots - but if it is your boat then seeing a few extra shots is not always a bad deal). http://imageevent.com/justaddwata/namba11ctrace
