Sony RX10 II Black and White Skateboarding
from Kristoffer Davidsson
Went to Highvalley Skateworld with Simon Ax yesterday to film some more with my Sony RX10 II. Filmed in both 1080p 100fps and HFR 250fps. Started at 1250 ISO and went as high as 6400 at some of these shots, just to keep the shutter right when the light faded away. Edited and graded in Premiere CC2015, Lumetri Looks and I’ve added som Gorilla Grain in post too.
