I'm not referring to the skills needed in knowing your camera or gear but an extension of that; like being a pilot, flying a plane or helicopter or in this case a diver... check out this video, it 's an amazing feature part of a larger project and although the subject is "breath-taking," my first thought was, "I need to get scuba certified." I mean I wouldn't even be considered to shoot something like this because I'm not a diver... watch it and hold your breath. HA!http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-12151830
That guy was walking on the floor of the ocean like he was walking down the street. Amazing he can do it for 5 minutes longer than he did.
Yeah the BBC video is awesome but holding your breath for SEVEN AND A HALF MINUTES! WOW! That is an impressive preview Eric! Aside from the story about an amazing individual it is shot so beautifully, very cinematic. And what an amazing location with no one else in site on white sandy beaches!
Yeah David, Martin has a great eye for visuals and the story for sure. ESPN really does a bang up job with some of their pieces. Their show E:60 which Martin shoots and produces for has some great stuff. Awesome storys, lighting, shooting, music....the whole package.
Eric, thanks for sharing the link to E:60. Really nice stories. I though The Children of Bhopal was especially interesting. Way to go ESPN.
That was a good one Pat.
