About the shot :

I shot this image in the final practice day of the British America'Cup series. It was torrential rain and the only day I could be at the event. The foiling cats are so fast I wanted to create the effect of that experience in a still image. I was not needing to shoot a press image having the luxury to shoot it in a creative capacity. Using a slow shutter and by moving the camera adding to the the yachts motion I created this painted photograph.

Camera :

CANON EOS-1Ds Mark III, EF300mm, 100, f16 , 1/20
