Beside having the joy of still and video photography, I also love to study the bird life of the roof space and the park next door. Seagulls, are fascinating birds to watch and study, especially when then are so close at hand.

Up until this point of time we have been discussing the camera and you behind the camera. Now to improve on your work we now turn to you in front of the camera. For this I am turning to a lecture by Sir Michael Caine, which is in six episodes and can be found on You Tube.
Here is part 1.  https://youtu.be/ibzR9__N1pQ
You will find a great deal of information, both in front and behind the camera, right from part 1. through to part 6.

The city of Victoria has just had its Father Christmas or Santa Claus parade on the 26th of November. Not only do crowds  line the streets, but the gulls perch on the street lights and roof tops join in for the scraps of food left behind.

A Happy New Year to you all. To start with we see Rarotonga, Island of Paradise in the early morning light from a Air New Zealand jet at about 6.00 a.m. So sit back and enjoy, the background music was supplied to me by my good Maori friend Bobby Browne.

The best way to get there from the UK is via Singapore, Auckland, then Rarotonga. Traffic drives on the left of the road, so should be no problem for you.

All clips were shot with a GoPro 4 Black on a handheld gimbal.

I see that at the end of the month you have been asked to take part in a National Bird Count in your garden. Besides counting, why not photograph your visitors as well. Then you have photographic evidence as well.
Here I took a snap this morning of a young gull visitor:  https://youtu.be/6LFKtY22n7U

Don't forget to turn up your sound.

This next bird I estimate to be about 20 months old and not quite an adult. Not ready to breed for about another 16 months.

To obtain close up shots of wild life and this time a gull, one needs to set up a camera close to the subject. In this instance I used a small tripod with a dummy camera. When the subject had got use to the setup. I replaced the dummy camera with a GoPro 4 Black.
Here below is the edited result. The light could have been better, but there is always another sunny day in the future.

Using the same technique and the GoPro camera, but this time I have recorded sound as well.

I am pleased with the high definition result as well. Shot at 60 frames per second.

Spring seems to be a little late this year out here on the west coast. Clips shot with a GoPro 4 Black mounted on a 3 axis gimbal.

I suppose you could call this one "Big Boys Little Toys." It took my son Neal and I about 3 hour to assemble it. It was made in Germany. We did not use the fuel lamp to test it, instead we used a bar-b-que lighter. Camera is a GoPro.

It is this time of year when the Magnolias come into bloom for such a short period of time, that I cast my mind back to those years that Sir Stanley Spencer painted various Magnolias in Cookham.
https://youtu.be/Z6NjL7bMrck
There was that time in 1934 when he came to Widbrook to paint the stream, sadly, I am told this painting is missing from the Dudley Tooth records. I watched him paint this "Pot Boiler. " from start to finish. This of course was when the Thames Conservancy kept the feeder streams to the Thames clean and free flowing. Together with the Pollard Willows on the north bank and Cliveden Woods in the background.

The light was right yesterday afternoon, so I shot this clip with my GoPro 4 Blaclk camera mounted on a 3 axis gimbal fitted to a GoPro suction cup mount attached to the drivers side window. Shot at 60 frames per second. Clip edited with the GoPro Screen Editor.

For the past three years now I have been enjoying using a GoPro camera. First I bought the GoPro 3 Black camera with a DJI drone, then I purchased a Feiyu Tech G3 three axis gimbal to steady my hand shots. Now I have a GoPro 4 Black which goes with a Feiyu Tech G4 three axis. These two can be readily mounted on the car to create excelant motion shots as seen in the previous posting.
 
If anyone has a GoPro, or is thinking of buying one, and has any questions. Please feel free to ask me here.
