Thats a great idea! Next week we are going to start filming a longer video, with rider sections and all that jazz. So hopefully I can get some good shots put together and get a good video put together.

Thanks again for all the help!

I'll be sure to do that, everyone has been a great help and I'm excited to get out there and get some shots together! Should be a good time!

**Also anyone have any tips for shooting into the sun? I know this isn't ideal but seeing as I'm on a lake I really dont have that much of a say for what direction we go.

You can get some interesting effects shooting towards the sun. If you're using a filter, make sure it's multi-coated to reduce bounce-back, where you see the lens reflecting off of the filter. Also keep your lens (and filters) as clean as possible. Dirt, dust and smudges really show up when shooting into bright light.

Thanks Jason! But how to get more detail on the subject. Here is a little video of what I've got so far. A real rough edit, can't stress that enough, the intro i really like minus the letters getting a little spacey and the camera bounce, I really dont know where that came from must have been something in post. But tell me what you think, from this i believe you'll understand what I mean by shooting into the sun. Thanks again for the help!

well done!

Great stuff Landan. The subjects are standing out much better against the background and loved what you did at 00.58. How did you get such good slo-mo? All my attempts end in a serious loss of res. but those water droplets looked lovely and crisp...

Re: Not reaching my Canons potential...

sorry Henry I've been gone awhile, just trying to shoot as much as possible! But if you're talking about the Slo-Mo at the beginning I put alot of effort into the stability of the camera, also shot at 60i just because the movement is so fast. But If you're referring to the end, I think I just got lucky haha.
