Last week I was in Alaska at Katmai National Park on a photo adventure with Laurie Excell and two other photographers. To say it was spectacular is putting it mildly. Bears and more bears. Eagles, otters, fox, puffins, sea lion, oh and did I say bears? For 8 hours a day we went searching for and finding critters. Just to be in Alaska was a treat. The scenery alone is magnificent. When we weren’t shooting we were talking shop, comparing equipment (always fun) and just getting to know one another. Only took 9000 pics. Here are a couple of shots. More to come.
It looked like it was going to rain so I thought I would get some great cloud action. This was shot through a window. Set the camera to run at the defaults of 1 shot every 5 seconds and ran it for about an hour. This was the second test. A small aperture works best to prevent flicker from the aperture variations of each shot. Manual focus and manual exposure to achieve the light variations. I changed the default from 30fps to 24fps to get more time from my storage media. It’s so easy, the camera compiles the movie and it’s ready to go.
