    I was invited to photograph the 2013 Express 27 Nationals, hold this year at the Richmond Yacht Club, across from the city of San Francisco. It was my first time photographing this kind of event. On the first day, I used a Canon 70-300 lens mounted with a polarized lens. I shot aperture priority with a speed of 1/2000 and a ISO of 640. Upon reviewing the photos after, I realized that the speed wasn't fast enough. On the second day, still with a Canon 70-300 and a polarized lens, I shot aperture priority at a 1/3000 speed and an ISO of 800. Still the speed was not enough. The green waters of the bay and the urban background didn't do well with the vision I had so I desaturated the photos, keeping only the reds, yellows and blues. I also increased the highlights and whites to bring focus on the sails and boats. I am quite pleased with this first experience and am looking forward to do more sailing events. Read Less
