Being a Wedding Filmmaker the winter is the down season for me so I took some time out to try my hand at time-lapse photography. This is my first attempt at filming time lapse's, And I soon found out filming the milky way at night gets a whole lot more tricky. I had some new gear I had just purchased to try out so I was stoked to give that a go. I had a few gear issues on my first few nights but turns out it was more 'operator' issues and once I had learn't my lessons I was away flying! I learn't so much over everyone of the 12 days filming. I had no idea how much work goes into creating a film like this. Preparation is so important and having good time management (which isn't always my strength) goes a long way to getting great footage. The sun, moon and milky way wait for no one. Then when you do finally get the timing right, the clouds get in the way. grrr. Ruined my moonrise! All in all, I had an epic time and although improvements could have defiantly been made I'm stoked with what I achieved for my first attempt at this type of photography. Technical Notes: Most exposures ranged from 30-60 seconds at 1600ISO and spanned 2-4 hours. This gave me 4-8 seconds of time lapsed footage. Captured on Canon DSLR's EOS 550D EOS 60D EFS 10-22mm (80% of the film was captured with this lens) EF 24mm f1.4L EF 50mm f1.4 EF 70-200 f2.8L IS II Manfrotto Tripod Legs and Heads. Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly with elektraDRIVE motion control DitoGear DryEye System (a must have for shooting at night) One Eveready torch and a couple of LED Lamps to light up the foreground.

    • Mordor: The Land of Shadow


      from Kolby Kirk Added 285 0 1

      While hiking the Tongariro Northern Circuit in New Zealand, I couldn't help but feel like I was in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings. It looked just like Mordor (or is it the other way around?) The snow-covered volcano in the background is Mt. Ngauruhoe, which played the part of Mt. Doom in the films.

          Some of our short experiences we have as we stroll along the Taranaki Falls track. It was cold and windy.

            November, 2009. On our way to Wellington from Auckland. We spend 2 days 1 nite at the National Park, Tongariro National Park. We planned to cross the Alpine crossing but was not allowed to do so due the strong wind. So, we took the short Taranaki Falls track (2-3 hr)

              Music: Iguazu by Gustavo Santaolalla (from the movie Babel) The first shots from my recent New Zealand holiday. This footage taken in and around the Tongariro National Park in the center of the North Island - with the help of my Manfrotto 560B monopod and the Twoneil DOF adapter (static). What I learnt while making this video is that for every well framed static shot, you need a number of fluid "fly on the wall" shots to inject a little life into what is essentially a bunch of nature shots put to music. When you are shooting it is hard to see the value of filming "off the cuff" through the vibrating windshield of your car. But in editing mode, these kind of shots can really help to pull your more static shots together into a narrative. A lot of people are quite critical of the number of videos on vimeo which are, when you boil each down, just various landscape shots strung together loosely with music. I don't mind such videos, providing the shots are taken with some care and imagination. However, for this video I wanted to at least try to edit together a visual narrative to keep things a little more interesting. Unfortunately, as holiday videos go, I only thought about this after I arrived home - so I'm working from a limited palette. Anyway, would love to get some suggestions about where to take this kind of footage from here. My editing techniques used thus far really just extend to basic trimming of length, so I would love to get some tips and see some examples of people taking their holiday footage and making something more imaginative and unexpected - to give me a bit on inspiration of what to try next (both editing and shooting). Hope you like it. http://www.markwelker.com
