Fun With a Surf Video in Mexico

As you may recall, a couple rounds of of arty farty lifestyle and action photos got posted from a recent trip to Mexico. In addition to shooting stills, I shot a bunch of clips with my Canon HDSLR. I complied these moving images of place and beach into a time line and added Sleeping Lessons by The Shins to please your ears. It is a total challenge to shoot both types of media, especially in the same day. I found switching gears always left me wondering if the next wave would have me wishing I was shooting video vs. still or still vs. video. I have become accustomed to making stories with digital pictures so following that tradition while shooting hi-def video came without thinking. Now, what to point the lens at and press record definately added some spice to my digital routine. The option of what would look cool as movement opens up a whole new variety to what I can express visually. I had fun with this Mexican stuff, so please, enjoy Rob Brown, PJ Raia and Jonathan Mincher surfing.

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.
