This video clip is to emphasize the point that when taking videos and where possible always use a tripod. Let your subject do the moving and where possible use short clips. This one is not I-Pod trained as it is the .wmv format. Turn up your sound as well.

This time the study is again of a seagull but, this time we are using a tripod and once again to demonstrate how important it is to use a tripod. Sorry to the I-Pod users again it is in .wmv format. Goes well with Windows, even with Windows-8.

Sometimes one has to be up very early to catch a shot like this. No time to set up a tripod. Just one aim and shoot and the subject was gone.

When taking wild life video photography, one never knows what the result will be, as everthing is unrehearsed. Even more so when you are working within a certain time frame. Once again I have my regular gull actors taking part.

Now this 30 second video blog I took this morning. To gain the trust of wild life over a period of time I find very gratifying indeed.

Today the field of photography is moving so fast that when buying a new camera to update your old one, it will pay you to consider buying one that will cover a dual purpose like a SLT unit that will give you both high definition video and still photographs as well. They come in various makes and price ranges, so look around ask from people who use them, then find one that will suit your needs and pocket at the same time.

Once again I have gone back to working with both RAW and ARW format. The results you will find quite remarkable as you will see if you compare the two photographs I have posted in this latest blog.
The pace at which digital photography has progressed in the past 30 years, when I started with a Sony Mavica camera and a floppy disc.

One desirable piece of gear that the serious video or still photograper needs is a quick detachable camera mount for the tripod. There are several mounts available on the market and I have used mine to demonstrate how helpful this type of mount can be.

My historical pictures of late have taken me back to what we think is the work of one man William Bailey, who was a painter decorator by trade and took up photography as a hobby. You will in the near future seeing a lot more of what we believe to be his work.

For those of you who are budding amateur video makers, this blog will be of interest to you with reference to recording sound over a distance from your camera.

By the way if you are having problems making good videos, there is an excellent video club over in Bourne End, which you can find on the web.

Carrying on from the previous blog on sound. I have now put together a demonstration clip using my little friend Augustus to give us all a few squawks! Note how sensative the microphone is while planted about 20 feet from the subject.

While trying to capture the varying calls or cries of seagulls. This little amour took place between my star gulls Penelope and Augustus.

We now switch from a video to a still shot that catches the subject in that certain light that only remains but for a few minutes. It is of a cruise liner paying its final visit of the season before heading to the Caribbean.

This is the time of the year that the active photographer gets out and takes photos of the trees as they turn from green to gold. The time span is a very short one so you have to be quick while the conditions are there.
For my subject I have used the good old Horse Chestnut tree, where every boy in Cookham would be playing Conkers. While yelling out the call: "Idy,Idy Onker my first Conker." To which the reply would come "Idy, Idy O my first go!"  From what I hear that Conkers have been ruled out by Health and Safety as being dangerous. Mind you, I never heard of anyone getting hurt playing the game, except for the occasional rap on the knuckles from the odd conker, and that was taken as part of the game.
