Power 20

[18/52]

 

I coached dragon boating for years and was quite involved in the paddling community but took a big step back when I went to photo school. Being able to come back to the festival on the other side of things, as a spectator and photographer, is going to be quite exciting for me.

 

I really enjoy the challenge of creating a good action shot on the water - there's so many variables (wind, waves, stability, visibility, location, background etc) that are usually a little more controllable in a more traditional sports situation. I really dislike how busy the background is in this particular photo, but I suppose it gives a little more information about the situation?
