1. Check out my new website at tomguilmette.com for blogs and more.

    This video was shot in a few hours at Ashland State Park in Massachusetts. The weather was finally beginning to warm up and people were out enjoying the outdoors.

    I brought my PMW-EX1 camcorder with the Letus Extreme, a Vinten Vision 3 tripod, my homemade dolly system, three lenses and two filters.

    I used PVC pipe and my dolly for the slow slides and trucks. I do have to be careful because even a speck of dirt makes the camera vibrate in the dolly system.

    The three lenses I used was a Sigma 18mm f3.5, a Nikon 24mm f2.8 and a Nikon 300mm f4 telephoto. I used the telephoto lens to get tight shots of people fishing from across the lake. I also used it to get shots of the turtles basking in the sun.

    I recycled a few shots from previous trips to the lake. The macro shots of the Garder snakes was from a video I shot a month ago called “Snake Eye View”. I used a Nikon 55mm f2.8 macro lens for these intimate snake shots.

    I used a Tiffen 52mm circular polarizing filter to help with the sky and water reflections. This made the water a deep dark hue and created a very blue sky. I also used a four point start filter for the sun smear you see at the end of the video.

    I edited this in Final Cut Pro and color graded with Magic Bullet Looks. I over-saturated the colors in the video.

  4. I went canoe camping again this year in the La Verendrye Reserve, about 4 hours north of Montreal.

    It's nice and isolated. There were many Loons this year (the bird, not the psychopathic human kind) , and the weather was pretty good, not too much rain.

    The black flies, as always for this time of year, we're magical. Magical in that "I'm being eaten by mini-piranha's" kind of way. :)

    Shot with my Panasonic GF1, with the Panasonic 14-140mm and 20mm 1.7 Pancake lenses, the Voigtlander Nokton 25mm 0.95 and a GoPro Hero HD.

    The song is "No Cars Go" by Arcade Fire.

  5. All filmed using the GoPro HERO camera.

    At the end of October life was getting a little bit hectic so we made a last minute decision to recharge our internal batteries with a short wilderness trip to Sweden. We hired a canoe and made the most of being outside.

    During our 5 days camping we got to paddle, chop wood, make fires and toast marshmellows so now my soul has definitely been recharged with a warm smokey glow.
