A few weeks ago I made my way out to Brett Rheeder’s compound to catch up with him and do a bit of low-key shooting. I had not seen Brett since we shot together in the spring, before he headed off on his furious FMB tour during the summer. Brett had a few videographers there working on an edit for him and I hung out for the afternoon to snap a few stills.
Was a pretty awesome day for shooting. It had rained fairly hard just a few days before but the light was pretty sweet by the time I got there. Harrison Mendel, Brad Scholl and Sam Buschbeck were busy filming and I just did my thing. These guys have an edit in the works so keep an eye out for it. In the meantime, here are a couple of my stills and a few sequences for kicks.
I decided to crank out a few sequences while I was there. It was really just a play day for me so I had some fun pushing my D4 to its FPS limit, something I don’t often do.
My new D4 has the ability to shoot at 11fps but I seldom have a need for that kind of firepower. It has its place however and when you need that sort of burst, it’s invaluable. Here is one of the sequences I shot. The first image is the full burst and the second is a selection that actually allows you to see what’s going on 🙂
It was great to see just how much Brett has progressed over the summer. He had some big finishes this year including taking the win at AT’s Showdown just a few weekends ago. Congrats kid!
