A behind the scenes look at my trip to Chukotka, Russia. I was traveling around Chukotka starting with Anadyr (capital of Chukotka) and into the very deep Tundra where nobody lives except small tribal groups of reindeer herders, staying and photographing them in their everyday life, and it was a life changing experience.

Shot between April and June 2013, mostly in my backyard here in Ventura, California. Lenses used were the Panasonic 45-200mm for the 3 slomo shots of the hummingbird feeding on flowers, and the rest of the footage was shot with a Nikon 80-400mm (manual everything). All the footage, except the 3 slomo clips, was shot FHD 1920x1080 .mov 30p @50Mbps. Shutter speed was 60th and the ISO ranged from 200-400 depending on lighting situations. I always tried to shoot when there was cloud cover or a marine layer early in the morning and in the evening. The 3 slomo clips was shot FHD 1920x1080 .mov 24p @50Mbps 40% speed. The species shown are Anna's, Allen's, and Costa's Hummingbirds.
