Sad that our little photo workshop adventure is now super-ending! A few people that came here to New Zealand for the event ended up staying longer, and now some are leaving after their extended stay! Anyway, here's one of the views from the a few mornings ago near Glenorchy... #newzealand #glenorchy
@nickkeating About the shot: Day two of the #GoPro Athlete Camp this year, we spent most of the afternoon paddling Bow Lake in the northern reaches of Banff National Park, Alberta. Like many of Banff’s glacier fed lakes, the water is a brilliant turquoise and even in the late summer hovers around 10 degrees above freezing. Atop our boards and wearing full wetsuits we were more than warm, but @izzi.gomez and I had a few shots in mind that required we jump in. How the shot was captured: Armed with an armada of #HERO4Blacks, Izzi and I paddled our way out to the middle of the lake to get some distance from the shore. Along with some board and paddle mounted shots, our goal was to nail a few over/under moments that captured at once the incredibly clear water and the fresh dusting of snow that had covered the peaks around us. Despite the slower action, I relied on 30/3 Burst mode throughout the day to ensure I nailed the perfect moment. With the choppy, wind swept water constantly crashing against the lens, the extra frames also helped in choosing the one instant in which Izzi’s expression and interaction with the water came together perfectly. #ProTip: Color has perhaps one of the strongest impacts on our initial reading of an image - and with that bright orange wetsuit, Izzi instantly becomes the focal point, letting the rest of the scene slowly unfold in our periphery. Use color to not only make an image more dynamic, but as a tool in directing the viewers eye through a scene. #SUP
#GoPro Featured Photographer - @nickkeating About the shot: This one was a collaboration between @aaronchase and I. It was the second night of shooting GoPro’s Bike Athlete Camp at @skinorthstar in #Truckee, California and we had tossed around the idea of playing with some long exposure night photography. By 11pm the moon had risen over Northstar’s summit providing us the ambient light needed to fill out the landscape. Along with our GoPro kit, we packed a small LED flashlight for mounting to Chase with the plan to record his moonlit line down one of Northstar’s flow trails. How the shot was captured: When we first found our location, we took a handful of test shots to dial in the settings for the scene - landing on a 30sec shutter, at 400 ISO and a White Balance of 3000K in Night Photo mode. After deciding on the angle we wanted to shoot from, but without a tall enough tripod, we looked to MacGyver and attached a Jaw’s Flex Clamp to the end of a tree branch which we held up by stacking a handful of large nearby rocks around its base. The camera framed up, Chase made his way up the trail to blast a few runs, and with the GoPro synched to a phone, we were able to trigger the camera as well as review and adjust after each shot. It was in this shot that Chase’s light trail made the most striking ark down the run, and the clouds opened up to allow the stars to pop through. The inherent experimentation of photographing by night builds an anticipation and excitement between each exposure, and once this image popped up on the screen, Chase and I were psyched for having made the effort to knock out a little midnight session. #ProTip: When shooting long exposure night photos, I always shoot at the lowest possible ISO for the scene as well as set my in-camera sharpness to Low. The low ISO will provide a much cleaner, less grainy image, and the low sharpness will reduce the risk of magnifying any noise. All sharpening you wish to add can then be done selectively in your favorite software or phone app.
