Ben, Abi and Holly waited so patiently for their cousins to arrive and have some fun.
Then it was a free for all :)

Playing out the back with the dogs and a fish eye lens, ok a very dirty fish eye lens, first time i've really used it, might use it some more....don't worry i have cleaned it now :)
It's been one year since we've had our new border collie Terra. A lot has happened in that year and she has transformed from a pudgy puppy to a beautiful "big dog" But as the song says, I love my dog but she can still Drive Me Crazy ...
My first little DSLR vid.
After much himming and hawing over getting a 5D or 7D for quite sometime now I finally got lured into the world of DSLRs with the release of the new Canon T2i.
Had my first chance yesterday to go out with my friend Matthew Iha to do a little testing. I can't pretend that I had any clue what the hell I was doing as the footage will show. It was all pretty reckless, just grabbed the camera straight out of the box and a tripod and headed to the dog park on Town Lake here in Austin. The profile was the default and we were only using the kit's EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens. Most of it was shot 1080 24p but did manage to work in a couple 720 shots to try slomo in post.
Would have had this online last night except that due to my noobishness ran into major headaches trying to edit the native footage. Today after downloading CineForm's Neo Scene, transcoded the files to avi and re-editing it from scatch in Sony Vegas all is right with the world.
Hope you'll forgive the not so great footage and hasty edit. Overall I loved it. Defiantly not the right camera for all situations but loads of fun. I think the main thing I didn't like was the lens but today I got the Fotodiox Pro Adapter Philip Bloom mentioned in one of his blogs that'll allow me to use some of my old Nikon lenses. think that will make a big difference. Will post some more when I get a chance to play now that I know how to edit this stuff. =)
