Rincon PR Surf Capital of the Caribbean
I've been shooting with a Lumix GH1, a fine camera that shoots in full high definition. It has been a month now, and the more I shoot the more I learn how to use it. The surfers I shot were about 100 to 150 yards away, yet this camera was able to get a good sense of them.
When I thought about why they liked this video, I can see it tells a 40 second story. Opening shots of waves, panning left to a group just entering the water. These are surfing students from a local surf school. The music underneath the video creates tension. Everyone is focused on the waves, then I shot surfers riding waves. Every time I see this I feel it's too short and it leaves me wanting more. I follow my intuition so I'm going to combine the second part and add a third for a longer clip. I shot about two hours.
I've added the video below. Check out my Youtube Channel: Puerto Rico Villa Orleans and subscribe. I have about 45 videos up, and I'm working on editing a project on Mayaguez 2010.
