Want that Olympic moment? Buy a kayak rig. Maybe consider adding a face mask to the helmet. Don’t forget the nose clip for the inevitable rolls under water. Practice and then go up to the upper Ocoee River to the Olympice whitewater course from the ’96 Olympics. On Saturday morning they open a valve at Ocoee Dam #3, down comes the water and down come rafts & kayaks. Quite an experience.
And how many images does it take to get an Olympic moment captured? We shoot at 9 frames a second chasing that elusive peak of action. In two and half hours, Dee shot some 900 plus. I shot 1800 frames. Got my moment and more.
