Los Angeles television crew captures amazing iPhone video yesterday from nearby wildfire
June 25, 2016
When I had a day job I worked around a lot of still and video photographers at all kinds of news happenings. They brought the world to the viewers. There were some who would hang in there shooting an event even when they were in dangers.
I stumbled into this link from a wildfire in the Los Angeles area. The reporter and photographer were doing a story when the fire moved within 30 yards of them. The shooter kept his iPhone shooting video while they were hurriedly collecting their equipment. You can almost feel the searing heat from the fire, as well as the immediate threat they were facing as they drove out of danger.
Most news video these days is predictable and, quite frankly, boring. This video is not and it's worth watching.
