Busy in the Glades and the 29th award of Wild Hungary

  • Wednesday, 19 June 2013

Wow, I’ve just checked back and it was in March when last time I wrote a post here. Too bad…
Well, not because I became reluctant but simply there was no time, spring was very busy in the Glades. And seems there is no rest in summertime either…
fbBut at least I regularly manage to upload some photos to Facebook for my colleagues and now I made these Making of photos public on this link, please just click on the photo.

…And meantime Wild Hungary got its 29th festival award, this time in Poland!!

 

OSPREY NEST 2

  • Saturday, 02 March 2013

Dry season supposed to be here in South Florida but instead it’s been raining already for 3 days.
So, unfortunately I have time to write a post…
The Osprey nest that I started to film isn’t going to work this year, it seems the pair gave it up. I guess they just have chosen a bad place as it happens to be in the middle of a popular kayak route. Even worse, when it’s windy in the Keys, as it is so often in these days, their tiny bay is still well sheltered and fishermen show up in herds. And oh lord, they don’t see anything over the tip of their rods and often I saw them cruising right to the nest without noticing it’s there…
So, I was not surprised that the birds got fed up. Shit happens in wildlife filmmaking, actually I just feel it does too often… But I checked the other nest that we scouted with Chad yet back in early January and guess what? It works even better, the birds are there, can be filmed from four different angles – in fact it’s five if we get it from underwater as well.

Here is a short making of, Janne shot the super slomotions while I was closer to the nest sitting in the bushes in seawater. (Note the shot at 0:55, it’s not hunting, the bird cleans its feet after feeding. Cool isn’t it?)



It’s all about packing now . . .

  • Wednesday, 01 February 2012

I am often wondering especially after two weeks of packing, just like now, that hey, come on we are making “only” some pictures!!

But devil is in the details and every piece of kit must be checked for instance such nuance things like safety pin (to attach curtains  hanging in the windows of the blind to cover the lens) or the perhaps more obvious new viewfinder of the camera (had to donwload a new firmware from Sony’s website…)

So, this has been going on for quite a while but now the stuff is about to be shipped to FLA, USA… The shoot starts soon and I’ll be back in the swamps feeding the mosquitoes again! Hurrah.
