        • "Apis Mellifera: Honey Bee" a high-speed short

          Those clips and more available to license via Story&Heart. Link to : https://www.storyandheart.com/stories/707 Last week I wanted to film something in high-speed (I shoot something every week to keep it fresh). My Bullfrog film had done well on the internet and I wanted to step up and challenge myself. I have wanted to film bee's for quite a while and luckily for me there happened to be an apiary in my town. Allen Lindahl owner of www.hillsidebees.com stepped up and allowed me to film his hives. It was 92 degrees out and the sun was bearing down, but I was told sunny days are when the bee's are most active. Without a bee outfit, I was ready to shoot. I was able to get pretty close to one of the hives (about one and a half feet) which was perfect for using the Canon 100mm Macro IS. I primarily filmed with the Canon 30-105mm Cinema zoom lens wide open. I also used a 300mm Tamron and a Nikon 50mm. I had my trusty Sound Devices Pix 240i as a field monitor and for recording ProRes via the HD-SDI out of the Photron BC2 HD/2K. It was very hard to track the bee's as they fly very fast and were getting a little bothered by how close I was to the hives. I was only stung three times which is pretty remarkable due to my proximity and my lens poking almost into the entrance way of the hive. I shot for approx 2.5 hours each day. It was so hot I got a pretty bad sunburn and the camera was hot enough to cook a fat porterhouse. There was a few moments that were intimidating when bee's started landing on my arms, face, in my ear and on my eye. I just stayed still and they went on their way with the exception of the three stings (1 on the arm, 1 on the neck and 1 under my ear). Bee's are actually quite docile and would prefer not to sting. They just want to make honey.

              During a torrential downpour at Robert Frost Farm, I ventured into the forest which hides a frog pond and decided to film Bullfrogs in slowmo using my Photron Fastcam BC2 HD camera. In hindsight I should have at least bought an assistant as the rain was severe and the gear was heavy and awkward to carry by myself. Also I had to make a custom rain cover for the camera, Pix240i and the lens. As a kid I always wanted to shoot wildlife documentaries, etc as Wild America and other shows were my favorite when I was allowed to watch TV. This is actually harder in real life. Being that there was little light to work with I was shooting at 2.8 wide open and 1000fps was the highest frame rate I could go in regards to exposure. Since my lens was a 300mm the depth of field was literally 2-4mm in some of the shots which you can see when the frogs jump or if you look at the background to foreground relationship. I am pretty happy with the result and I can only get better being this is my first attempt at high-speed animal filming.
