The annual Carson Ianson Memorial Snowboard Jam went down last Friday and Saturday. We had plenty of video and photo coverage throughout the day. Mark Oliver and myself were shooting photos as well as doing some filming (I will post a few photos below this). My brother Eyler lent me his Super 8 Film camera. I’ve always wanted to film with it so this was my chance.
I purchased two rolls of film from B&H Photo and Video to start off. Each roll is two and a half minutes and 50 feet in length. I also had a Sony VX2000 3CCD video camera to shoot with as well. The bad news was that I’d been shooting all day long with this camera to find out later, that none of the footage had even recorded. Apparently this happens when the video heads are dirty and need to be serviced. I’m still bummed about the situation but I do still have the Super 8 footage to get processed. All in all the trip was great and I know the other videographers did get footage.
On another note, I just took a look at some of the entries for this weeks photo contest and there are two photos that pop out. Both are worth viewing so check them out at Our Weekly Photo Contest.
Here are some photos from a hike I took with some friends and my brother when they were over visiting. The water fall was 380ft tall (I didn’t have the wide angle to get the whole drop in the picture). I also attached a photo of a bird that wouldn’t fly. The cat had gotten a hold of it and had to make the it release the bird.
