I thought I would change things up a bit (I am itching to go skiing again this season!!). Hope you like it.
It was very dark and extremely windy that night! Watch this eerie dark trip down a run at Brighton Ski Resort in Utah. Windy like a blizzard. That’s my dad skiing ahead – I used my tripod as a stabilizer.
Canon EOS 7D, shot in 24p
Canon 17-85mm IS
Redhead Windscreen (Gunmetal)
Manfrotto Tripod as a ‘stabilizer’ 🙂
HDR-like color correction in Premiere.
H4n audio spruced up with Premiere’s compressor. The H4n did well with the Redhead Windscreen. It was very, very windy out (the video doesn’t do it justice) – yet the Redhead really held up. Snow was piling up in my lens hood, and the Redhead was CAKED in white flakes. Later, I shook it off and let it air dry. I thought for sure it would get ‘matted’, but it nearly returned to its original fuzziness after it dried. redheadwindscreens.com
I shot in these blizzard conditions with my 7D, Canon 17-85mm IS lens, Olympus Zuiko f1.8 50mm manual lens, H4n, and Redhead windscreen for approximately an hour. During that time, I changed lenses in the snow and the 7D had no problems. The LCD screens on both the 7D and H4n were ghosting, but were still fully functional. The temperature was around 20º.
Skiing at night is really an exciting activity. I have tried this last month and I was surprised because I have realized that it is more enjoyable than skiing at daytime. Thanks for these ideas.
You really need some spy movie music for this one. Your arm must have gotten tired by the time you got to the bottom of the hill.
Haha, that would probably sound pretty good here! My arm wasn’t too tired on this one. Another hill at another resort took me 12 minutes to get down – my arm was tired on that one! Thanks for watching and taking the time to comment!
