Recently I was down in the San Clemente area shooting a documentary video for the main company I work for and had some time to run down to the San Clemente Pier to do some shooting. I decided to try out 60fps on the water and see what I could get. I'm really happy with the results. I have @petercote to thanks helping me to find the proper way to interpret the footage in Premiere.

I shot this just before going to Phils HD-DSLR Master Class and also going to the HD-DSLR Meetup in Venice. There I have really come to understand the need for using an ND filter during these shots in order to maintain my Depth of Field. Definitely a necessary investment.

I also suggest to under expose by a stop or less to guve yourself enough leway in post. Also using Phil's advice for flattening the image. As you can see here, I'm over-exposed for most of the shots. Again thats why I do these *Homework series videos, to teach me exactly what I need to change before I go into the paying gigs. A lot of fun shooting 60fps. Definitely going to use this in the future. :)

*Going to grad this later and repost when finished. ;)
