As a photographer or videographer – I think it’s always a good idea to carry some kit with you, the amount of times I’ve missed a great photo opportunity has happened too many times. On this occasion, luckily I had my Kowa telephoto lens and Kowa MFT lenses with my Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera in the car. As I drove through Trearddur Bay on Anglesey, I noticed lots of people preparing boats on the beach. I decided to park up and watch what was going on, it was boat race organised by the local sailing club.
What a great subject matter for a video, stunning scenery and fast paced boating action, combining wide angle shots with the Kowa MFT lenses along with telephoto shots with the Kowa 350mm telephoto lens I shot some footage – adding some sound effects and music in the editing stage added to the drama – here is the resulting video:
