Daily “What the…” pic

I saw this parked on my street coming back from the grocery store and had to take a few pictures. I waited around for a while to see who owned it (sheer curiosity and it would complete the pic gallery) but alas, no one showed.  I can only imagine it’s Ariel the little mermaid clinging to her past (she has legs now right?).

Memorial Day

We went to Lakeview Cemetery today to pay our respect to those who fought and died for our country. The flags, somber ambiance, and overcast skies lent themselves to some great shots. These are a couple of my favorites.

The Skatebarn Vert Team

I spent a couple of nights shooting my son’s vert team and about a week putting it together. I was able to tap into Cinema Tools’ conversion tool that lets you seamlessly convert 60 fps video into 30fps for a seamless slow motion look. I also copied all the regular speed files so I could edit the regular speed and slow motion speed clips together  – very common technique but one I don’t get to use alot in news stories (go figure). I also followed a Creative Cow tutorial that uses both Cinema Tools and Motion to do a super slow motion effect at the end of the video where I thank Skatebarn – you can find the tutorial here. It was a fun video to put together and having the coach as my husband helped me figure out what tricks to feature and what to leave out (Eugene’s featured and he skates amazing for an old dude).
