Been Skiing Lately?

I’ve had some busy winters, so I haven’t been doing much… actually, I’m a snowboarder.  But I recently had a friend tell me that they notice that a LOT of people are using GoPros on the mountain.  Have you noticed this?

Daily Photo - The Long Dock

On one of my final nights in San Francisco, I walked out on the dock off the Embarcadero to see what I could see.  There were nice views in every direction, and one of the best was looking straight back up the dock at the Transamerica building.

This wide-angle 14-24 lens is one of my favorites, but it does have one little problem that can also be an advantage.  It takes whatever is in the center of the frame and makes it quite small.  The opposite of that happens on the edges, where things get quite spread out.  So, I did that little trick here to help the Transamerica building to seem a bit taller.

    yep, I see a lot of GoPros cameras, on helmets or even more often they put it on the long stick and film themselfs…not sure why… seeing yourself up and close going down and not much else might get boring after a few seconds

    Very cool use of the wide angle lens Trey….I miss SF.

    Hi Trey,
    Yes, I’ve been seeing quite a number of GoPro’s this year on the slopes.  Of course, you see the shredders using them so that they can watch and rewatch that ‘wipe out’ that gave them the ‘spinal’, but I noticed mostly they are being used by parents videoing their kids learning to ski.  I’m going to be picking one up for my next heliskiing trip to Whistler for sure!  I wish the GoPro was around when I was racing formula cars… it would have been a whole lot easy to use than jury rigging a handycam on the roll bar!

    As for your “trick” too make the building look larger in today’s photo… I’m not sure that I understand exactly what the trick is, but my best guess is that perhaps you took the initial photos with the building not centred in order to make it look larger and then centred it in the final crop?

    the trick: “It takes whatever is in the center of the frame and makes it quite small. The opposite of that happens on the edges, where things get quite spread out.” you put the bottom of the tower in the center – it is small, the top of the tower is near the edge – it spread out. Appears to be longer.

    Nice Shot Trey, this is a nice spot, just beware of the people around, there’s a lot of Camera Snatchers in that area, just have to be careful especially at night.As always, you deliver…courtesy of http://www.rockingmyfantasy.com/
