I took my first REAL water photo 50 years ago in 1972. I used a cheap Minolta Water Camera. I’ve taken thousands of water shots ever since. THIS MIGHT BE BORING to some of you. It’s 15 years of Go Pro footage that I’ve shot using the Hero II, Hero II, and the Hero V. It’s just under 30 minutes in length, and 90% of the footage, is slow motion (hence the boring comment).
Truth be told, you have to use Slow Motion when editing water footage. It just happens too fast otherwise. And you lose the detail and beauty of the waves themselves. I have always been fascinated with the mechanics of a wave. How they form and break, and of course, the pure stunning beauty of the empty hollow wave.
This is not Pipeline or Chopes. And it’s NOT New Jersey.
Far from out it. It’s mostly fun sized waves being surfed by local surfers. My biggest regret is, I didn’t capture all of my friends in the water. There are too many to name in this video, but not nearly enough.
It’s 15 years worth. And while I love being in the water shooting, my best footage has always been shot on dry land. In my honest opinion, you can’t beat these little cameras. They shoot great HD quality video and they are fun to use.
