Hey Paul,
I think everyone will know all about possums after this round! They're a great subject to shoot, they really don't mind being filmed, well most of them anyway. You will however see in my entry that not all are up for it! I've had some really interesting times trying to get some of my subjects to sit still for more than a couple of seconds before they litterally fly away!!

Yo… I’m nearly finishing with me production. I just got the VO to ad to the video, Uploading on Monday. I think that this one turned out pretty go.
Yesterday I was out and got my final shot, and I got the creepy crawler I was looking for to…
I hope you other still fight to finish some entry.
I think that this round was little to narrow theme, maybe it would be better with “from sunset to sunrise”.
Anyway, I hope some more finish.

Cheers from Sweden
Markus

Hallo Markus

I read in some of your post ,that you have some home made
HID light. Can I ask on some tips on this.See that HID light is very
important to got the great color. I had a lot of clip,but the light and
stream was a big problem.

The light are realy importat for UW filming. A high temperatur (5000-6000K) light is something you most have, if you go deeper then 10m. Specially if you filming wildlife (with wrecks it's not that important). My homemade HID lights are from the swedish shop "Biltema" I guess you got some store in Norway to (in Oslo, I think). It is a two light kit that you should put in cars. I got mine made for me, you need to make most of the parts on your own. But it is so much cheaper, to buy twin 35W HID you would pay in sweden about 2500-3000 Euro and my cost me 800 Euro with eveything. But is also tock me long time before I got al fixed. One of them (the only one I tock with me) leeked for me in Australia so the ballast and the battery broke, just to buy new ones.

During this film (UC6) I'm using two HID's, one on a 1 meter arm on the camera and the second are on my divebuddy, just so I can get the best light angel on my object. And you also don't get that much backscatter (reflection on particels in the water, same effect as headlights in snowstorm).

Well, I'm back from my Oslo tour and now I'm trying to edit something for uwol6. Meryem I just have to say this one is very difficult, but I guess you know that by now.
But I will deliver something, maybe on Monday.
What a clever girl you are Meryem :)

vidar, great pic...can't wait to see the whole thing!

well, i didn't mean to torture everyone quite this much. i thought it would be good to do something a little radical. but i am shooting most of mine this weekend, like i said, at least i eat my own cooking! when you suffer, i suffer with you!

i promise, we will ease into the new year with a very easy theme!

if only this annoying sun would go down, i could get to work!

gonna be cold tonight....brrr. i guess i should not complain about the cold where brian can hear me...

finished

Good evening,

Like others, my actual plans did not come to fruition, however I did just download an effort for the last challenge of the year. I was about ready to jump into the tank even though I had about an hour of footage. Weather has been howling winds, nothing seemed to be working out. But thursday evening I got out and had some cool things happen when filming that actually kind of tied into my bits of footage I took at the first of the month.

anyway, it isn't as planned.


meryem, you must have a deep rooted urge to punish people!! lol.

hardest video I think I have tried to ever put together.

I guess I should really thank you for that.

I even titled it uwol6_ dwg_ moonglow, Sure hope that does it this time.

Just a slow learner I reckon!!!

dear dale:

gaaaaaaaaah! repeat after me....

DWG_UC6_moonglow

getting closer, at least!


ok, i don't know what all the bellyaching is about. i just went out tonight and shot most of my entry. it's not going to be brilliant, but the shooting was fascinating! i've never gone hiking with my camera at night before. i probably never would have bothered, either, without UWOL.

whoever came up this fantastic idea? sheer genius!!

i always like to see through my lens in entirely new ways, and this did that, for sure....

having said that, yes indeedy! this is HARD.

the survivors of this round will definitely have learned a few lessons about their cameras....

Amen, Meryem!

I'm back home after almost 6 hours out in the night, the watch is ticking and passing 03:00 am here now. Got something the first hour before thick fog was coming, so the moon disappeard which i had planned to shoot tonight

Then I was stucked with the citylights which was almost not visible in the foggy night. I do need one more clear night to finish up this one, hopefully tomorrow night.

Time for some sleep...

Per,


We have battled the weather for the last three weeks. We are frozen up, snow and ice on the deck. Wife slipped on the ice and fell down the stairs of the deck today, no real damage fortunately. Finally in the first quarter and we have been clouded in, figures.

Hope you get you clear evening tonight. Looking forward to seeing your city lights.
