RED Epic Shoot For National Geographic: Waterfall Kayaking

The folks at National Geographic recently got in touch with a need for 4k and 5k footage of waterfall kayaking.  Naturally, Spirit Falls in Washington immediately came to mind as the perfect location!

Our team did some technical rigging to establish unique camera positions in precarious spots, which allowed me to be close enough to reach out and touch the subject.  To capture the scene I primarily shot with the Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 prime lens, which limits wide-angle distortion, is incredibly sharp and has a beautiful contrast and saturation profile.  Certainly one of my favorite lenses.

All shots were made in 5k at 96 fps or 4k at 120 fps for final delivery in 4k.
