Somewhere on these pages someone mentioned that it did not work with one of the Apple products. Sorry about that Roger, as I am now having fun with my new Sony SLT-A35K camera with a 16.2 megapixel capacity. Mind you it comes with a 200 page instruction manual in English.

The little dog in this picture was saved from a dog rescue centre. But the present owner found out that it does love to dig hole in her garden. From this single still shot I have been able to come up with a 30 second story.

If are interested and living in the Cookham area take a look at this as it is very well done.

Now here is a new twist to the Ken Burns effect with still photographs. In this one minute clip not only does one zoom in on your subject but also then be able to track sideways, in this case from left to right.

We now move on from stills to video clips, where the camera is motionless and all the movement is created in the editing afterwards. In this clip I was able to zoom in following the walker. Then pan right to left, ending on the shore.

So the experimenting continues.

Still using the same effect as in the previous blog and the Zoom In and Freeze effect then pan from left to right. A thermal inversion often occurs over the Straits of Juan de Fuca, which can be seen in the video as a ribbon of Stratus cloud lying across the middle of the picture. Above and in the background are the white caps of the Olympic Mountains.

While waiting for morning sunrise to catch the top of the Olympic mountains this morning. My friendly gull showed up on the roof and started his usual banter or chatter. In the background you also hear the many crows nesting in the park.

In this clip I used the Ken Burns effect to zoom in up until the gull was about to take off, and then I switched back to the starting point for the take off. All this was done in the editing.

Once again we are back to the Olympic Mountains. This time with a live 1 minute video to make a Ken Burns Zoom & Pan clip. If you look closely you can see the odd seagull flying across the screen.

Still on the same theme of the mountains, but from a different angle. This time I have added music to compliment the scene and the tranquil mood of the subject.

We now switch from a distant scene to a close up, and again with movement both of blooms moving with the breeze, but also zooming in and out.  Also the various formats that you can use for different applications.

The present day marvels of both Video and Still photography using High Definition has come a long way from the Kodak Box Brownie or the Bell & Howell film camera with a turret lens attachment. Now we are all digital and we now look to see how many megapixels we have. Mind you for the best landscape videos or stills a good firm tripod is a must, and with a fluid head all the better. There is so much out there to learn, and the field is growing so fast, that I find it is not hard to learn something new every day.

Recently I have been asked by those new to the hobby, "What is RAW or ARW?" The answer is that the RAW or ARW version of what you have taken is the uncompressed version as shown in the blog.

Following opn from the previous posting I have taken two photographs from the same shot. The first shot is as it was downloaded from the camera at 4,912 pixels in width. The second is after zooming in to take a close at the down still in the birds beak after it had preened its feathers. Note the texture of the filaments of the down is quite visable.

Once again using favourite and very cheap model I am showing you the result of taking a photo at about 25 feet from the subject using a 75-300 mm lens. Then manipulating the photo while in the RAW or ARW stage to see the iris of the birds eye.
