This filming lark is amazing. I’m getting quite enthusiastic and have decided to make a serious effort to try to improve my vids which shouldn’t be hard. I’m discovering that it’s not as easy as I thought though. I’ve been rather slapdash up to now, not so much with the editing, but with the filming. Wobbling all over the place because I couldn’t be bothered to take a tripod, moving around too much and my favourite, thinking I’m filming when I’m not.
I’m not a technological kind of guy so I’ve only just discovered that I can change the exposure settings on the videocamera. This makes night shots and low light shots possible. Jeez, all those missed occasions of night-time snowy, moonlit mountain scenes.. If I’d discovered this before I wouldn’t have had to throw away so many decently framed shots because they were overexposed in the tremendous light conditions – fog and cloud on snow like on the last video up on Servin with Balders. So Tuesday is full moon so I think I’ll take a hike up Servin again but at night to see what comes of it.
I quite like trying to fit the film footage to the music and a lot of time is spent trying to find appropriate music but I think I might try something without music.So the latest effort is below, minus most of the good stuff and as usual nothing much is happening. But It’s all good learning material. If I watch a week after I finish it and think OMG this is terrible I then learn why it’s terrible and can maybe, that’s maybe, learn from my mistakes. We’ll see..
