Well, it’s taken me a while to finally contribute some video footage to istockphoto/getty. Now that I finally have capable gear, I’m curious to see how this does. Here is my first contribution…
These are the trails that shoot off the harrisburg greenbelt. Some very challenging riding in an urban location. Some really great stuff.
The Cranksgiving bicycle race was incredible. Competitive, fun, joking around and for a good cause: all the ingredients to make you feel good about the day. We had a blast and can't wait to do more of these event!
Enjoy the GoPro footage!
This probably won't be the final edit for this clip. I rushed to post it for a friend of mine. Mountain Biking in Rocky Ridge in York PA.
More summer sharing. Yes, if it seems like I've been mostly shooting video and not photography it is because I have. I've always enjoyed working in the video realm and now that tools are more available to a cheaper price points to be able to do exciting stuff at home. I've been playing.
This was just a simple edit with trip from our Kayak trip with Outer Banks Kayak Tours. It was a nice tour, very informative.. learned a lot and had fun. I reccomend them if you visit the OBX. Video edited while on vacation using my iPad and iMovie.
As the summer kicks into full effect, it is action sports time once again. And since a good photographer “shoots what he loves”, I’m back into the sports shooting scene again. Actually, It is more sports “video” currently with the GoPro Hero action camera.
I’ve loved this little camera and I’ve been using it quite a lot lately. I’ve been taking it kayaking at the Outer Banks (NC) and even hauled it out into the surf with my son playing around at the beach and set it into photo mode.
I’ve posted a few recent kayak trip videos and today is no different. This particular video was shot at 720p60 and interpreted the footage down to 30fps to get a natural smooth motion slo-mo effect. It really helped enhance the relaxing mood of floating along the Yellow Breeches creek here in south central PA.
Next up… more bicycling and more motorcycling videos/photos. The biggest downfall of owning a GoPro is the frantic neuroses of where do you mount the camera next. There must be an actual name for it condition (add a comment if you have a suggestion and we’ll coin the phrase.)
We took our first family kayaking trip (our new hobby). I quickly mounted a few mounts for my GoPro on the bow of my new boat and let it roll while we put in the water. I need to grab more b-roll footage and see what else I can do, but here is a fresh clip editted with iMovie on the iPad. (yes, you can directly import and edit GoPro video footage on your iPad.)
