Playa del Carmen, Mexico Destination Wedding Trailer... w/ Underwater!
Andrew Waite Andrew Waite is offline May 19th, 2011, 09:39 AM


So we shot this two weeks ago in Playa del Carmen at a private Hacienda on the Carribean. Thought it would be fun to try and incorporate some underwater stuff... This is what we came up with. We pretty much kept it to some establishing shots, and it was more of an uxcuse to goof off in some amazing waters.

Equipment used:

Underwater stuff is 7D with Tokina 11-16 2.8 in an underwater housing.
Slider - Cinevate Atlas FLT... My new favorite slider!
Steadicam Merlin... Not my prefered steadicam, but perfect for destinations.... In case your wondering we prefer our Pilot... Even over the Flyer, we feel you can get better dynamic balance with it.
Bodies - Mostly 5DmkII here with a few 7D shots.
Lenses - Canon 24 1.4L, 50 1.2L, 100 2.8L, 135 2.0L, 70-200 2.8L, 16-35 2.8L, and Tokina 11-16 2.8.
Lighting - Litepanel MicroPros and Dedo Light.

No Helicopter stuff at this one... We had another wedding the same day in the states that had already booked our Helicopter and pilot... Those shots came out amazing, but oh well... Can't win em all!

Andrew,
Even without the helicopter it still feels epic, well done. I like the zoom on the cello shot. Your composition is fantastic and inspiring to me to keep a better eye out on my gigs.

Whats your opinion on the lite panels? Get much use out of them. I'm going to make a separate post, but the wedding last weekend had awful back-light behind the couple. If I had the light panel, I don't know if I would have used it or not.

The Lite Panels are great! Far better then all the cheapo LED lights out there.
