More stills, less video

As a hobbyist, I've found myself steering more toward stills and less towards video to make the point. Two reasons, time and sometimes a still makes the point better and individually is more easy to share. This has opened up a new world of flashes and trying to capture a singular moment. I was recently asked to cover a community work day at a local co-op farm that produces near-organic food for the community (organic practices, not certified yet) . It was a fast-paced, ever changing, "real" event and hand held was the order of the day. Here's the resulting piece:


Thoughts?

Great idea

Keeping the balance between slides and video makes sense in the situation you were in. Looks interesting and is a break from the usual informative videos that seem stressed at times to tell the story. Seems that you have shown me something new.

I've been shooting video on the DSLR's for quite a while, but really haven't mixed a lot of still's in until now. It's really changing my thought about shots; is motion essential or is suspending a moment in a still preferable. Good news is these cams do both reasonably well!
