Now here is a 30 second short clip of a Hummingbird at a man made Feeding Station shot with my SLT-A35 camera. It has also been trated with the Ken Burns effect.

Thank you Dragonman. I have now added a still that I have captured from the video, so that one can take a closer look at this wonderful little bird.

When using a camera such as an SLT-A35. Sometimes it is better to take a short video clip of what you want and then when back at your computer, you can select the exact moment to use for your still. I have added a short number of video clips to show you what I mean. Then I have selected the right moment for the still.

 I came across this short documentary featuring Ken Burns telling us what telling a story means to him.

While a compelling glimpse into what motivates him as a film maker, the video also uses several interesting stills that have been layered to create a three dimensional effect. In all, it does show that my experiments have only just scratched the surface of what is possible

Thankyou Dragoman. Now here is a 60 minute interview with Ken Burns which a greater depth in to how the film was made and the research that was made to make the video. It also shows how the combination of still and old movie footage were put together.

You can find it at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9GkNQa5of8

Are you looking for an ideal Christmas present for a member of your family or a friend who is keen on photography both still and video. Well here is one that I have just purchased for my wife Deborah. I am sure that she will be able to make good use of it on our trip to the Cook Islands this Christmas. Plus with a 4 gigabyte memory card it did not cost an arm and a leg.

This video is very worth watching. It has been made by a fellow member of the Victoria Video Club, Lars Reese Hansen. My thought is that the same sort of video could be made using the river as theme around Cookham. https://vimeo.com/52911288 Also if you need some good advice, then you can always contact the Bourne End Video Club, who by the way are listed on the internet.

On December 12th, 12.12.12, across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the third annual global day of media creation called One Day on Earth. Together, we will create a shared archive and a film.
Founded in 2008, One Day on Earth's first media creation event occurred on 10.10.10. and the second on 11.11.11. The 10.10.10 collaboration was the first ever simultaneous filming event occurring in every country of the world. One Day on Earth collaborations create a unique geo-tagged video archive as well as an annual feature film.
Together, we are showcasing the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one day. We invite you to join our international community of thousands of filmmakers, hundreds of schools, and dozens of non-profits, and contribute to this unique global mosaic. One Day on Earth is a community that not only watches, but participates.

In a previous blog I gave you an idea for a small camera as a Christmas gift. Now with the memories of an old BBC programme "Dessert Island Discs." I can give  a little taste of what it is like on the island of Rarotonga.

Tomorrow the 9th of December my wife and I take off for our Christmas holiday to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Our packing is almost finished and then we look forward to being with our Maori friends once more. So have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Well I am now back from my sixth visit to the Cook Islands in seven years, and still I am meeting new and interesting people and new natural subjects to photo and video. With those balmy onshore breezes to keep you cool. Yes, there is always the odd rain squall, but they are usually quite short. This first picture is of an Hibiscus, of which there are 37 known varieties on the island.

Having returned from my annual holiday in the South Pacific with some 1500 still and video clips in the bag, which by the way may or may not used down the road. There again to use an old blacksmith phrase: "Strike while the iron is hot." As time never repeats itself. My ever willing gull subject was very glad to see me back and as ever, very willing to pose for me.

The Cornish waterwheel shown in this clip is to demonstrate how in a few seconds how the machine works, by using two still clips at either end,, with a 17 second video in the middle. The water to work the wheel is channelled by a wooden flume or duct to the top of the wheel.
