Sea Dog Paddle series

Towards the end of last year fellow FHPS member Keith Lyle and myself got the opportunity to be stand-in photographers at some of the weekly paddle competitions on Fish Hoek beach. This is expected to continue till the end of summer.

It’s a fascinating opportunity, because it sometimes happens in a stokingwind (causing wind-chop as well as sandblasting one’s lens while coating everything with salt) and covers 4 distinct phases: the preparation on the beach (a low key, group portrait-gathering, phase) followed by the actual event where you need to find the right vantage point and focal length (not to mention shutter+ISO speed, as it is a lower light evening event), followed by the manic sprints from the water to the finishing post, and finally the gathering for spot prizes and awards.
