Night foiling. Very cool.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on lake Brasseemermeer in The Netherlands, in November 2018.
Time
We started shooting around sunset and continued until it was too dark to focus.
Lighting
Four compact flashes (Godox TT600) were sealed and taped to the hydrofoil sailboat WASZP. I was on a motor boat, following the sailboat.
Equipment
Here, i used a Nikon D800 with Tamron 2.8 24-70mm, Godox radio trigger and four vacuum-sealed Godox TT600.
Inspiration
The original idea was to emphasise action and drama by placing the flashes such, that every water drop is lit. Elliott Savelon (the sailor) used to sail catamarans and only recently changed to WASZP hydrofoils. These are great boats, going fast and silent, flying above the water almost without disturbing the water at all, which of course means that you won't have any water splashes for the intended effect. We still loved the idea of shooting him in the dark and continued with the plan.
Editing
As we didn't place any flashes under the wings, I changed the exposure to light the hull. If we'd do it again, there will be flashes under the wings...
In my camera bag
It depends a lot on the shoot, but I love using a Nikon D800 with a prime 85mm lens such as the Nikkor 1.8 85mm. Here, I used a Tamron 2.8 24-70mm instead.
Feedback
It can get cold in November in The Netherlands... Make sure you're dressed for the occasion! Play it safe, you don't want anyone to drown or freeze to death. Give clear instructions as to what you'd like to see and what angle you need. Carefully adjust the flashes before the sailing. Have fun!
