p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · America's Cup in San Francisco - Friday August 24th


I spent another afternoon shooting the America's Cup in San Francisco this Friday (August 24th). This time the weather was great: sunny with just some traces of fog, low wind at the start of the races (14:05), but it picked up nicely afterward.

This time I brought my tripod and gimbal and my 400mm F/2.8 with the usual collection of teleconverters. I ended up using mostly the 2x (TC20E III). I also brought a 16-35mm for wider shots than what I was able to do lat time.

Plenty of boat pictures, but for this post I'll focus on wider angle shots as well as tight crew shots.

C&C welcome as usual.

On the sea wall just East of the St Francis Yacht Club, about 200 yards east of where they had the bleachers. A lot of the close up crew photos are full size crop shot with the 400mm and the 2x teleconverter.

Nah, I decided to skip Sunday assuming that it was going to be a zoo (both the parking and getting a good spot without having to arrive 2 hours ahead of start time). So I went shooting a women soccer game instead.
