Sites and Sounds April 14, 2013


Sites and Sounds of Sitka Alaska on April 14, 2013. I filmed this short video in only 3 hours with a Panasonic GH2. I used the standard firmware, no Hack. Edited with Sony Vegas Pro 10 then re-sized using Handbrake using a old 3 core computer. Bird Watching, Bald Eagles, Fly Fishermen, Clam Digging, and Boating are many of the activities experienced on this rare sunny day. Feel free to share with others.

I'm slowly losing my mobility, and I noticed a loss of memory this past year, but, I will continue to film as long as I can.

Enjoy,
Dave

Nice work David, my wife and I travelled in the King Salmon area and flew to Brooks Falls for a day to see the bears salmon fishing.
Your video reminds us of the beautiful scenery and wildlife there.

We couldn't find a nicer area to go out walking every day, great exercise for you .. and us :)

But watch out for the Grizzlies :)
Cheers.

Re: Sites and Sounds April 14, 2013

God! That would be tough on the person, as I know of one photographer who moved too close and was attacked and lost one eye. What was the result Allan?

At times we filmmakers and photographers move close to the subject, at times within the comfort zone of the animal or bird. Unless one is able to read the signs/body language of the subject moving close is dangerous.

In India one press photographer was killed by a wild elephant when he went too close to click with his wide angle lens. Another person who had moved close to elephants in an agricultural field, was charged at by elephants. The poor fellow ran, stumbled and had a fatal heart attack, even though the elephant never came close to trample him.

However, expert we might be, one mistake can be our last. I have stopped calling myself a knowledgeable person/expert after an incident when my ego was comprehensively crushed by tigers in the dark. Tigers in the Dark

We have long lenses, so it is better to keep a safe distance so that the subject is not stressed.

I got too close to a Bald Eagle once. I was standing about 10 feet under it. The Bald Eagle let loose, and I was immediately covered with about a liter of fertilizer.
