    Sorry to dissapoint, but no pictures... yet.

    I've shot people sailing in small boats (and big sometimes) but to capture the motion well seems near impossible on a sunny day when you have a white boat with water (read: reflections) white sails, and clear bright sky. I've used both long lenses and wide, but neither seem to capture the image the way I imagine; long just looks plain boring and wide makes them look stationary.

    What's your experiences/best methods for shooting on-water sports with bright light?

    Most good sailing shots are shot from another boat

    Well obviously :lol: I'm just taking these shots while coaching usually so I'm always in a rib of some sort. Fairly stable platform. I was talking more about what angles, focus points, DOF etc to use.
