Energija Team – Strunjan 2014

Here it is, first official video I made for a local bike club Energija Team. They had some preparations for new biking season. Most of the team members went to Slovenian coast on Tuesday, 18. February, and they already made some footage with their GoPro cameras, but most of it was made after my arrival. I arrived there on Friday evening and I was filming for about two days. It was a bit working weekend for me, but I must say I really enjoyed it and it was fun to work with these guys. It actually doesn’t feel like work when everything is so much fun. =)

I think it was the funniest thing when guys realized I was not kidding we were going to make a “human text” for the video and photo. And they were quite confused how to create the letters, even though I had a sketch for every letter. You can see some of the confusion at the end of the video. =)

Energija! text with human letters
Energija! text with human letters

Video is not as awesome as it could be, but considering the time and equipment, I think we did a good job. I’m always critical, but I know there is sooo much to improve, so let’s hope all future videos will be an obvious progress. We learn from mistakes so… =)

Anyway, video and my human “Energija!” text photo were also published on Mtb.si, but you can also see the video in this blog post or directly on YouTube.

Downhill biking training in Buzet, Croatia

12. 05. 2012

Večji del downhill ekipe kolesarskega kluba Energija, se je v soboto odpravil na celodnevni trening. Moja naloga na faksu je bila “dokumentarna fotografija”, zato sem se odločila, da bom skozi cel dan spremljala njihov trening. V to seveda ne spada le vožnja s kolesom, ampak tudi vse drugo kar spada zraven in kar morda večina ljudi sploh ne vidi. Lahko bi rekli, da sem bila z njimi “v zaodrju”.
Tu je zaenkrat le nekaj fotografij, več pa si jih lahko ogledate v končnem multimedijskem izdelku, ki je kombinacija videa in fotografije. Dobil bo še nekaj manjših popravkov (predvsem pri tekstu), ampak načeloma je to to.

Larger part of downhill team of biking club Energija, went on a whole day training on saturday. My assignment for college was “documentary photography”, so I decided to follow their training for a whole day. And this means not only riding a bike, but everything else that comes with it and most people probably don’t see. We could say I was in “backstage” with them.
Here is only some photos, but you can see more of them in final multimedia product, that is combination of photo and video. It will get some small editing (with text mostly), but in general this is it.

Guys are ready for a ride to the top of the track.
Going up with a van.
Ride with me, ride with me… =)
On top they go out of the van and get ready for the ride down.
Going past the small chappel… Let’s pray for them! =)
Even trees bend to these guys… =D
After all these rides up and down, van needs something to drink…
It’s nice to end the day with refreshing swimming in the sea…
