Here I am showing two ways that you can present still photos. The first is a video clip in .mpg. The second two photos are single stills using the RAW technique to enlarge without loss of pixels.

Videoing animals, birds and I find gulls in particular right now, you never know what action they will pull next. Then of course you have fun playing around with your footage to make up this short clip. Now for those with I-Pads I have included a still so that you can view the subject half way through and if you click on it, you will get a full screen view.

Cracking good video James, plus the enlarged photo catches the moment.

Making a home video can be a great deal of fun, and like with old time photographs you need an album and a way of introducing the collection that you made. When watching TV and perhaps a play or even an advert, just take a look at the way it is put together or edited, and believe me there is a lot you can find out by just watching. The intro should not be to long as you don't want to bore your audience. Take a careful look at how a commercial of even 15 seconds gets it message across. Anyway have fun!

Once again I would like to demonstrate how you can turn high quality still photograph into a useful video clip.

We now move to a video shot using the same technique as for the still rose. This time I am using Autumn Leaves blowing in the wind, while zooming in and still maintaining focus on the subject.

It is one of those still days with a soft rain falling that I took three stills of my local feathered actors who were just hanging around to see if any rewards were coming their way. They were looking all forelorn and wet, so I called them my "Soggy Duo."

There is a very good website http://www.videomaker.com/ where you can pick up a tremendous amount of useful tips on a daily basis once you have signed on. Plus you can search their website for a lot of good material as well. There is a lot of uselful information on cameras, so you can make an informed descision on your next camera.

Once again when a subject presents itself then you grab your camera and shoot. This time it was one of this year's crop of gulls. As they seem to scarce this year.

For those of you who would like to learn more about making videos, I have already mentioned the Bourne End Video Club. Now I have a .pdf file that has been put together for the Southern Counties group and their editor Pip Critten:

As we now swing from summer through autumn and into the long winter nights, it is time to reflect and recall and record your summer photos and create and burn your memories on to a DVD disc. The photo of the Crown in Cookham is just a short example of what can be done on your computer and an editing programme like AVS4YOU.

I know there are a lot of cell phone cameras in use today, but I rate them back with the Box Brownie of years ago. If you are serious in obtaining first class photos or videos, then one has to consider buying an SLT camera, and with intercangeable lenses you will get the best of both worlds.

As I have been discussing SLT lenses. I thought I should mention the fact of looking after your lens when taking shots or videos, and to minimise the contamination of the lens from dust.

Just to save the rest of you bothering to click on the linkthis is wahta it says ....
Avery useful tip to remember is to keep your lens cap in place right up until the time that you want to take a particular shot or video sequence. Then replace it to avoid the lens becoming contaminated with dust. The same thing goes for when you are changing lenses, also replace the body connecting cap of your lens. Dust can can play havoc with your lens and you can't be too careful.

The subject of stitching still photographs has come to the fore. For those of you who would like to try this technique I have prepared a step by step example and told you where you can download a free stitch programme. So once again enjoy and experiment. There is still time to teach an old dog new tricks!
