My lastest video comes from the most exotic natural location in the world: the Grand Canyon. It is a long drive from Oklahoma. We passed through blizzards and closed highways but eventually made it.
I really wanted to take some sweet sunrise, sunset and star time lapse photos. I didn’t really accomplish any of that but did take some sweet pictures. I took the Canon 7D and my new toy, the Go Pro HD. My time lapses were mediocre at best. I novelly screwed some stuff up (shot one in aperture priority, pointed the camera in the wrong direction, shutter speed, Go Pro problems, etc.). I was disappointed, but that wasn’t the reason we went.
We went to get away from here, to take a break. And it was a good one. Also, a cold one. We camped in the snow with 4 layers and 800 blankets. But it was so beautiful! How awesome is God? The Grand Canyon is a wonderful example of His majesty.
Oh, and we went to the four corners (Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado) on the way home, and it was closed! How is that even possible? I’ve got a short video I need to edit about the whole thing. Coming soon!
Last week, I decided to edit my footage to (always epic) Moby’s “Wait for Me” for his contest on genero.tv. I uploaded it in the nick of time, but they still haven’t processed it yet. Hopefully, it gets through, though I have no chance of winning. There are some terrific videos on there (more than 400 of them!)
