Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

Wow, everybody must be hard at work putting together their themes, hence no responses yet. I've been Wondering with Woe what I'm going to do with LIGHT...... waiting to get struck by LIGHTning with a great idea.... keep checking back here for updates on how everybody else is doing.... hoping I might be enLIGHTened a bit....hahaha OK so, enough of the cheesy-ness and back to work on my theme.

Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

Yes! I managed to unbrick my new camera (which is another way of saying that I managed to brick my new camera). A failing SD card reader corrupted a firmware update file when I downloaded it and when I tried to update- whammo. Bricksville. After jumping through a bunch of hoops I was able to flash a new firmware image and everything is working again. It isnít my main camera but even so- WooHoo! I hope Geir Inge can get his cameras working again soon and that none of the rest of you are having any other major woes.

Good you have your camera up and running again, Mike. Bricks are no fun!

I was out filming a tiny bit yesterday. But my entry will of course be unofficial and not part of the judging since I knew the theme in advance.

Bring it, everyone!!

Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

Good afternoon,

Well I spent yesterday getting the big camera out of the case and prepping it, we have a film job this evening and then I am out and on this film. Nothing set in stone, I am going to shoot everything of interst and then see if I can make something of it. Not my usual mode of work; I usually like to be fully organized and ready, but that has not seemed to work for me this last year and a half, so we're winging it and seeing if i can actually finish!!

At least the camera is working Tronde, so don"t send that letterbomb yet!!

Always nice when the equipment is cooperating, right.

Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

In typical Yeti fashion, I have my music track picked out. So now I can start trying to feel a film after listening to it a few hundred more times.

Iím running true to form also. At this point I have no idea what Iím going to do although I have some few dozen good ideas that Iím not going to do. Pretty typical for me.

Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

Well I have a pretty good Plan A, subject to being able to schedule shooting with my subject(s) at the weekend.

Still working on Plan B etc, and I haven't even thought about the music!

I always pick my music before I even pick up the camera.

Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

I have a great idea that's nearly impossible to pull off without some on-camera help as usual, and it's a little off the wall which also seems par for the course. I guess half the fun is pushing limits.

Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

I guess it's nice to know I'm not the only one having a time coming up with my Plan-A. I don't feel so bad when I'm seeing some of the pros on here also in the same boat. I signed up with a couple ideas but for the life of me can't fathom how I'd make Light work with either one. I have a couple other ideas bouncing around the ole grey matter, but waiting for that spark of inspiration to bring it all together!

Re: Tales.of wonders and woes - UWOL 29

I have to shoot this with my Canon EOS 600 camera and maybe I'll use my GoPro camera too.
The reason is that my two main cameras need to be repaired :/
I have been hiking at Kvamsoy to get some ideas, but up till now I'm really blank.
Is this the seccond time we have "light" as a theme, or am I wrong on this one?
By the way, I like the theme very much :)

I hope not. I searched the archive before desiding the theme, and couldn't find we have used that theme before. (Archive was only up to challenge #19, which reminds me I forgot to have a look at the newer themes we have used, sorry guys.)
Anyway, next time the theme will definitely not have been used before.

EDIT:
Just had a look at our Vimeo archive as well. As far as I can find out, "Light" has not been a theme before. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The 600D is a good camera, Geir Inge. I'm sure you can produce something great.

UWOL #20 April 2011
Theme - Light
I remember because I made a little film called Light of the World.
Still a great theme!
