The Kona Classic Video and Photo Contest recently closed out. Participants were treated to video seminars by Light & Motion video expert Dan Baldocchi and Jeff Leicher from Jack's Diving Locker.

After the opening day’s seminar by Jeff, Dan held daily critique sessions. What was Dan’s number one tip? “Shoot to edit. The trick to editing video is to shoot with a plan. Varying your shot types and creating transitions in the water will make your job a lot easier when it’s time to edit your final piece."

Jeff's tip, "composition taught by still photography applies to video, but then you get to tell a story."

For the next week participants put Jeff and Dan's advice to the test and produced a three minute video. According to the rules all video had to be taken during the event and participants had to bring their own editing system. With that open ended direction, some videos were funny, some were sweet, and some were educational.

Enjoy! :-) Barrett
