Christ of the Abyss Statue_video

I was shooting a series of stills this week for a magazine cover, promoting the Florida Keys, but it also seemed a likely set-up for video mode on my Canon 5D MKII. Models Cody Wagner and Katie Wieland were snorkeling for the project, and by getting there very early in the morning we had the rare good luck of having the Christ of the Abyss Statue all to ourselves.

By 10:00 in the morning there was a snorkel boat with 34 passengers about to descend on us, but for a while this morning, something as familiar as the Statue was a very special place to be.

Of course, my real job was to shoot stills for the cover of "Keys Traveler", an annual publication for the Monroe County Tourist Development Council through Newman PR. Here are a few samples of the still objectives.
