An adult perched on a pole specially designed for these large birds of prey to rest on, and located around this wildlife refuge. November 2008, Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Northern California, USA.
My wife, my daughter, my son.
Even if my son seems to have the violence and the cruaulty of the youngness, frightening those birds, he is a peacefull heart, I can ensure you.
It was filming this month, august 2008, during our holidays in Venice, Italy.
The only point of this short clip was to use the slow motion of the Sony SR-11. Even if slow motion can be done in post-production, I was curious to see the quality of the camcorder's one. As you can see, it really hurts the definition of the HD pictures. Too bad.
It was editing in Vegas Pro 8. In my work, I'm used to edit in AVID, Final Cut Pro, even Premiere Pro sometimes. This was the first time I tried Vegas. I don't like it at all, maybe because I'm a newbies at it or maybe because I didn't find tools I'm used to work with.
I think, I'll buy Pinnacle Studio 12 ultimate. I would like to try it before, but I didn't find a free tryout version; so, maybe I'd take the risk anyway...
