Toward the end of last year I set out to start learning a little bit of my camera’s video capabilities and using Adobe Premier editing software. As part of that learning process, I decided as a bit of a self-assignment to make a photographer-friendly travelogue video about photographing the fall colors in California’s Eastern Sierra.
Although I shot the footage last year, I haven’t had a chance to really learn the editing part of the equation until just recently. This video is a raw, unscripted, off-the cuff travel diary in which I hope to give a few helpful tips and locations for photographers traveling to the area for the first time, or who just don’t have the same familiarity with the region as those of us who are more frequent visitors.
Even though I have a degree in the theater and feel fairly comfortable on stage or in front of a camera, now that the video is done and ready to be seen, I feel those same nervous twinges like I’m about to step out on stage totally naked. As Bill the Cat would say, “Ack!”
Please let me know if you’ve enjoyed this video by leaving me a comment, and / or sharing this video with your friends using one of the social media buttons located at the top of this post. If all that results is the sound of chirping cricket, well… then I guess I’ll just have to return Steven Spielberg’s directors chair.
And now, on with the show….
