Promo Video for the Canadian Adventure Racing Association shot in Collingwood, Ontario on the RED Dragon.
During an adventure race last fall, the Wilderness Traverse, I decided to try some in-water shots with my Fuji X-T1 to accentuate the paddling action during the canoeing section. I had experimented with a Dicapac WP-H10 waterproof bag with my Panasonic GH1 so I thought I’d try it out with my Fuji X-T1 and lens. The Fuji 27mm f2.8 pancake lens was the only one in my possession that fit perfectly and the photos below illustrate what I managed to capture with this combination. A wide angle would have been ideal but Fuji doesn’t produce one small enough to fit this particular bag. I’ll be experimenting with the Dicapac WP-S3 with either the Fuji 14mm f2.8 or 18mm f2 lens next.
An night time wheel puncture on a mountain bike section during the Wilderness Traverse provides a chance opportunity to capture some photos lit exclusively by headlamps.
Tired, stressed, focused & happy; These are the “Untamed Faces”. They’ve come to New England over the years to compete in the Untamed New England and possibly win a spot in the Adventure Racing World Championships. They return again this June 18th and so will I, to capture more of their expressions.
