Finally I finished the 3rd part of my "Natural Wonders" miniMovies.

This time its about the Grand Canyon, one of the most impressing canyons, I´ve ever seen.

I had to spend a huge amount of time for grading each shot extensively as I shot (by accident) with lots of different settings from superflat to highly saturated.
So lots of shots got their particular grading as well as a lot of masks which I had to use, to separate the skys from the ground.

This footage showed me again, how bitchy 7D footage can be, if you don´t know exactly what you do.

I did a lot of shots out of a helicopter, but as it is - when you´re beginner - you do a lot of things, you shouldn´t do and of course...I did :D

I tried my best to stabilize some of them, the rest...puhh...I had to put into trash.
(Next time I´ll remember that a helicopter has windows;)

Anyway...I hope you like this tiny movie too and if so, feel free to put a "like" on it :)
