Ski jumpers from all over the world descended upon Brattleboro, Vt., once again for the annual Harris Hill Ski Jump, Saturday and Sunday, February 16 and 17, 2013.
USA’s Chris Lamb took first place in the weekend’s events followed by Japan’s Yuya Yamada.
Local skier Spencer Knickerbocker of Brattleboro also competed in the FIS Cup competition.
Behind the scenes:
I chose to use a variety of tools while covering this event. I shot with my Canon 40D for my main stills that appear in the print edition as well as my iPhone 4 and the Hipstamatic app to push photos immediately to Instagram for readers to see instantly. I also shot video with a small video camera, Canon VIXIA , and worked with the new Vine app to post some 6 sec teaser vids.
