Re: UWOL 39 - Tales of wonders and woes

Whilst I don't yet have a plan (no surprise there then), I missed the harvest in the local fields today due to other commitments- I'm not sure they would have fitted to my entry, but some nice sunset shots would have looked good....clouds of dust around the harvester in a nice sunset yellow.
Maybe tomorrow?

Re: UWOL 39 - Tales of wonders and woes

I have an idea but sadly all the footage I shoot until the 14th of July belongs to the state of South Dakota since they are paying me to film the nature section of a film for their new state parks visit center.
Sucks cause I'm getting some amazing stuff!!!

Kevin, don't you have a friend or the lady who you could instruct exactly how to set up a camera and tell them how and what to film? Problem solved :)

Re: UWOL 39 - Tales of wonders and woes

Although I am having trouble getting it to fit the theme, I am putting together a film to demonstrate some relatively overlooked techniques that UWOLers may find interesting and useful for rehabbing old footage and for taking video in a different direction from what we are all used to seeing. Will you like it? Will you not? Time will tell.

Re: UWOL 39 - Tales of wonders and woes

Hi everyone, I miss you all! I'm looking forward to your entries and am sorry the sharks have a few "friends" to keep them company.

Steve--- what are you up to? I'm sure I will like it, whatever it is. A fresh perspective is most always a good thing in my book.

I have a few wonders to share, even though I'm not entered this round.

First, earlier this month our world traveler, Bob Safay, ventured to Colorado and we actually met up for an afternoon! This is one of the most fantastic upshots of the UWOL community: actually meeting friends you would otherwise never meet and just might get the opportunity to have fun together. You all are gearing up for this very thing in October, and let me say, it's a delight. I've attached a photo a passerby took of us for posterity, bad focus and all.

My second wonder to share is that with Bob's great advice, I am now a proud owner of my very first professional camcorder, a Canon XF 300. And wow, wow, wow! Bob even has sent over a training DVD so I can actually learn how to run this incredible piece of equipment.

So just maybe, next round I will enter and actually put up footage worth looking at!

My third wonder is looking forward to soaking up your skill and your "backyards" this round.

Keep at it, all!

Cat

Re: UWOL 39 - Tales of wonders and woes

Catherine, welcome to the gang of XF300 users. It's an amazing camera!
Has Bob given you his custom presets yet, or do you want me to send mine to you?

Very cool to see the US- uwol get together!

Hey Trond!

Sure, send the presets over. The DVD has a few suggestions too. It looks like I have an entire community to help me along with this camera, which I'm thrilled! Surrounded by you guys, I'm looking forward to having this camera a comfortable extension of my right arm. (Is this a universal saying?). I am so excited. A decade with an unusable camera and two months without anything at all.... this feels like heaven!

Check your email, Catherine. Your presets are waiting for you.

By the way, you still have a day and a half to make an uwol entry. ;)

Re: UWOL 39 - Tales of wonders and woes

Hey Cat,

It's nice to see what you look like. You too, Bob. I hope to stop by in the future, as we plan to move to New Mexico within a year or two. Not that far away.

I think I do have something fresh this time, at least it's fresh for me, and I really love the look. Since doing the UWOL entry with the technique, I am working on a short movie, completely in the "artistic" mode. It's letting me use 10 year old footage again, even 20 year old analog stuff that I thought was only suitable for the trash can. When you're as old as I am, you get desperate.

Re: UWOL 39 - Tales of wonders and woes

Thanks Trond! And LOL, I'm still learning the on/off switch and haven't even taken the camera outside yet! :)

Steve: Oh angst! That's a terrible photo of me and I don't look like that at all ;-). It would be fantastic to have you near the neighborhood, Steve. In a few years, hopefully I'll be really proficient with the camera and we can go shoot together. I am looking so forward to that! Here's to your entry!
