Wednesday night racing at the Encino Velodrome
I’m just learning how to shoot and edit video, and used the Wednesday night races at the Encino Velodrome to try out my inexpensive new shoulder rig from Cowboy Studio. The tripod I was using was too heavy and cumbersome to move around easily–not a good thing for filming bike racing. My only complaint about the rig is that the camera does not screw properly onto the mount, and I had to wedge some paper under the camera to make it sit flush.
This was the first race of the night–flying 200s that seed riders for sprints. Here’s Kieron Menzies’post about the race in his great blog Ride the Black Line.
