A peaceful journey through upstate new york's national parks. We hiked approximately 20 miles into the forest along trails, through streams, and even climbed up some the waterfalls. Over 16 hours of driving and less than 5 hours of sleep each night for 3 days. It was also extremely hot and humid. Keeping the lenses from collecting condensation was a constant chore. We had to cut the trip short because i severely bloodied my elbow on a rock. I know its not perfect, but i gave it my best shot. Essentially this is a cover of one of Devin Graham's nature videos. It looked well within my skill set and budget so i decided to give it a shot. I learned so much on the trip. I know if i took this trip again the results would be at least 10 times better. Shot with Nikon D5100, Sigma 10-20mm 3.5, Nikkor 55-300mm 4.5, and Glidecam HD-4000. I put in all my best efforts into making this video and it was definitely a learning experience. The majority of the equipment i used was new to me and there's only so much the internet can teach you. The shooting done on day 3 of hiking is substantially better than the first day out. I have so much to improve on such as composition, smoothness, exposure, and sharpness. Even through the frustrations, everyday working on this video was a blast. I can't wait to do more. I hope you enjoy it.
The locations we went to were: Stony Kills Falls at the Minnewaska's Preserve, Watkins Glen State Park, Eternal Flame Falls at Chestnut Ridge State Park, and Filmore Glen State Park. All in New York State.
