I spotted Lakey Peterson warming up with the guys before the 2012 Hurley Pro at Trestles in the foggy early AM.
Lakey schooled the dudes in a paddle battle ! :)
I was shooting stills and video at the same time with my Nikon D4 DSLR camera + 600 mm F4 Nikkor Prime + Panasonic Camcorder Video Camera Rig: www.flickr.com/photos/herosjourneymythology45surf/7993866...
See the video that was shot at the same time as the photographic
And here's the slow-motion video version: youtu.be/1sGOWiOOeK0
Enjoy the stills & video shot @ the same time! :)
Wish me luck @ the Hurly PRo finals! :) Wish you could join me to shoot stills & video of the world's greatest surfers!
The panasonic camcorder shoots at 60P and I slow it down to 24P in
post for slow motion!
The AF-S NIKKOR
600mm f/4G ED VR is a high-speed, high-performance prime lens which features Nikon’s VR image stabilization and Nano Crystal Coat!
The Nikon D4 rocks! It focuses fast and continuously! It can shoot 11 RAWS/second! Ideal for shooting Lakey Peterson or Kelly Slater carving waves, ripping the ocean, shredding the sea, catching air, and landing big aerials!
Lakey was the US Open Champion 2012! I bet she wins a world title next year! Go Lakey! :)
