Looks nice! Your camera work is very smooth. That's not easy went shooting something so far away. Were those timelapse sequences done in-camera or in editing?

Great job! I agree with Jim - very smooth - which is a real challenge on those long shots.

What were the camera settings?

24 frames? or 60?

A well done piece of video and great music as well. I second other people's comments that you are a natural with the camera.

nice work.

Great stuff Morgan. As a fellow surf photographer, I can really appreciate what it takes to go out and shoot some worthwhile footage. Of course filming the North Shore when its firing helps. Love the action at Pipe and the high angle shots of Waimea? One thing I've noticed while shooting surf with the A1 is that letting the camera have any control over the exposure is very bad. This means using full manual with AGC and AWB turned off. I'm not sure what was left on in your video, but it looked like the exposure was compensating for the harsh bright light reflecting of the white wash making for abrupt changes. Hardly noticeable though. Nice job with the edit as well. Looking forward to seeing more. The hardest part of being a surfer/photographer is staying out of the water, keep it up.
