While filming for ABC Open's 110% sports project, I took the under water camera out to film Harvey Thulborn take on some waves. To my disappointment, when I uploaded the footage to my computer, I found that my footage didn't work out very well at all. The drips of water on the lens blurred out the image in places, making the footage unusable. Bugger!
I figured there must be a way to ensure that the lens is free from water drips when you're out filming, how do those surf photographers do it? My first port of call was to ring the McAnulty brothers, two fellas from Warrnambool who have made some awesome surf docos and dramas; filming in water is the speciality.
James response was too easy; "Give the lens a lick"
Is that all?
Yep, that's it.
So the next time I went out and filmed I licked the lens after each wave and had much better results. Harvey Thulburn's 110% video will soon be up on the 110% vimeo page and on ABC Open. Watch out for it!
