For the video, I shot it using my Nikon D610, changing between a 24-70mm lens and a 10-24mm wide-angle lens. For the wide-angle shots, I used a Glidecam HD-2000 handheld stabilizer, which helped me balance the camera while moving around on the ice (though I did slip and fall once). The skating clips were shot at 60 frames-per-second and reduced to 50 percent of their speed in editing so that you can better see the complex movements of a skater in slow motion.
