Shooting Otago Gold, cont'd.................

Finally, the last few items.

One many pocketed photogs jacket, got more storage space than, well, any number of things. Jolly usefull when you've got your hands full.

The mandatory peaked cap, essential to keep the sun off LCD's, photochromatic glasses and eyes themselves.

Manfrotto Monopod for the Nikon D80 DSLR.

Not shown is set of hiking boots that lives in the back seat foot well for those "Off Road" moments.

And lastly, a map of Southern NZ in general and the area travelled in detail.

The story in the next exciting episode..................

Shooting Otago Gold...........

Well, the plan was to get up there and do an initial recky to establish what was ready to shoot, where.

This involved a marathon journey from Wanaka via the Tarras road, down the East side of Lake Dunstan to Cromwell. From there to Arrow Town via the Gibbston Valley, on to Lake Hayes then back over the Crown Range Road, along the Cadronna valley back to Wanaka.

Horrors! Nothing was "cooked"! This could take days!

The following day I went further afield to Hawea (nope!) then back and out to Tarras and quite some way towards Mount Cook (nothing!).

The next day it rained.

The following day was wall to wall cloud.

The next day I checked out Arrowtown again (zipping over the Crown Range road to save time).

Perfect! Cooked to perfection.

But, the weather report wasn't promissing for following days and it was taking an age to get every minute of video.

Something had to give.

With all that wonderfull video gear on board and available, some of the most beautifull scenery on the planet to capture, I , sob, abandoned it and went over to stills to get what I could get, whilst it was still gettable.

How's that for a bummer?

However...........I do have to say, the stills are absolutely, gob smackingly beautifull.

I'm going back in a couple of days to see if I can get the part's that weren't "cooked" the first time around, but that pesky weather is not looking good and the window is minute - still no video.

The one thing I have learnt is that there is no such thing as "good, quick video". There's no such thing as "good, quick stills" either, but they're a damn site faster to get than video.


Cheers,


CS

It's the real thing, but it's "street legal".

I also have a shelf to the left that contains most of the Digital Juice library.

Bryan-

Where did you get that desk? It's just what I'm looking for.

Thanks man!

EDIT..

I'm an idiot. I need to read....I see you replied to someone else. Musician's Friend.

So, how much of a photo geek is this, i actually did CC and level adjustment on this pic.......jeez....

So this is the setup above, without the MBP in the shot....the MacPro is in if you couldn't tell...14gb ram and 4tb internal.

And a 12 bottle wine cellar....forgot to put that. And that is an essential item....

Although I wouldn't suggest it if you plan on rack-mounting stuff. The welds aren't made for heavy items.

Hey Brian, fellow 'pegger here.

Is that a Digi003 Rack I see? How well does it play with the iMac? I'm looking at turning my iMac into a ProTools station (and retiring my B&W G3 450 w. Digi001) and moving FCPS2 to a Mac Pro.

Hey Shaun,
looking forward to visiting Winnipeg this summer and eating a big fat Georges Burger with Nucci's Gelati for desert!
It is the Digi 002, and after a few initial problems that were solved with instructions from Digidesign support, i am very happy with it. I think i had some problems after installing FCPS 2, also solved by Digi support..
i moved from a G4/ 001 setup, and am really happy i did so. much more options with 002 and the ignition pack is great, especially Maxim, T-racks EQ, Bombfactory 1176, Amplitube and BFD. If i could do it again, though, i would have gone for the 'factory', as those extra plug-ins would be great to have...
if i wasn't on another continent, i would also love to have the Black Lion 002 mods... the pres are functional on 002, but the mods would give you 4 outstanding pres... Not sure which PT version is the max for 001, but with 7.3 you get the ability to give each track its own color. It sounds trivial, but this simple feature has made the mixer WAY easier to use and organize if you have a lot of tracks, and it is very quick to find the RED bass or the Blue lead guitar(s!)...
Shaun, i actually asked you a few questions on another post, but i'll paste them here:
Shaun Roemich: i notice you are from Winnipeg, my hometown! i am now living in Burundi and have no access to technology. I am visiting Winnipeg in a few months and need GEAR!!! I have been in contact with Advance Electronics, but they are a little slack and don't have all that i need. Is there another pro video store in Winnipeg that you know of? i specifically need a Firestore and a Libec LS38 Tripod, and my experience with B&H is that you have to pay $$$ import tax etc. so money saved is negligible...
Thanks!

After having the fun of seeing everyone elses setup I had to share my own. Currently living in a apartment so space is limited. Come first of the year that won't be a problem and looking at building a new desk for the equipment.
