How To Capture The Extreme Shots |
DSLR Filmmaking | Canon 7D and Canon 5D Tips
One of my favorite past times is browsing the videos and documentaries on Vimeo. Recently I came across some wonderful work by filmmaker Sebastien Montaz-Rosset. According to his website, he grew up in the French Alps and has spent his life playing and working in the mountains.
In his documentary called “I Believe I Can Fly”, Seb explores the sport of free flight capturing some remarkable images that will surely make you squirm in your seat. In particular, he follows a group of pioneers in “highlining” – a combination of climbing, slackline and tightrope walking.
In the following series of videos Seb provides some Canon 7D and Canon 5D tips for filming sports and getting extreme shots. But first, here’s the documentary trailer to give you a taste of what he’s shooting:
In this next two videos, Seb explains how he got those incredible shots in the documentary.
You may have also noticed in Seb's documentary that some of the athletes had mini-video cameras attached to their head gear. Tiny HD camcorders can be fantastic for getting action shots.
One of the best mini video cameras is the Go Pro HD.
