I'm sharing an experiment that I thought you might find interesting. Using a variety of portable HD video cameras I documented a portion of day one of the Springs Wildfire in Ventura County, CA on May 2, 2013. The point was to not only test out the cameras but to share "a day in the life" of a Fire Photographer with you...from my perspective. It's a rough video with no bells or whistles. It's meant to just be a taste of my experience on the fireground.
On a side note for those unfamiliar with Fire Photographers, we are all credentialed members of the media and/or official fire department photographers on scene documenting the events and efforts for the public. We communicate via two-way radio, as you can hear in the video.
