    My 2012 Archery Buck

    Nice work Weston! Jay

    Utah Hunt 2012 VIDEO

    Coach- Thanks Again. The fades, and transitions are done in the video editing program. The slides are done using a slider. I have a Konova K3 slider that can either be set on its own legs or mounted on a tripod. One of the things I try to do its put together a "shot list" either on paper or just in my head well before a hunt. I try to have the flow and sequence put together prior to going out to shoot. I do this for photography and the video. Look at it as scouting.. Get inspiration from other videos and photographs you seen and put your own twist on it. Video is based on still photography and understanding composition is key to a good photo or video. The human eye is naturally drawn to certain compositions and you take your shots per those "rules". Those rules are meant to broken too sometimes. The other thing that is probably the most important thing is lighting and seeing how it effects your subject. One of my problems I have is (especially when I have a tag in my pocket) is to take the time and video or photograph in prime light conditions. Unfortunately prime lighting times coincide with prime critter movement... Just like glassing the tripod is your friend in still photography and video. Use the cameras capabilities to create the feel you want. I shot this with a DSLR not a video camera and used a lens with a large aperture to control the depth of field which can make an ordinarily boring shot, interesting. One of the hardest things to do especially if you are hunting also is to MAKE yourself stop and take THOUGHTFUL shots. The guys I hunt with always give me crap because Im lagging behind taking pictures and video but after the hunt always appreciate the fact its well documented. If I had any type of advise its to learn basic photography concepts and it will make your photography better and also your video. Youtube is an amazing resource when it comes to video and photography tips too. Just search it and you will learn a ton I promise. Another thing to think about is taking video of "fill" shots, to use in your editing. These can be as simple as a leaf fluttering in the wind or a squirrel running up a tree. They're short but when used to fill in between scenes it adds body to the video and helps in making transitions as well. Honestly there is a revolution happening when it comes to documenting our passion of hunting. Like you said in a previous post the hunting shows that are out today are sponsor driven many times but also so many focus on an "over the shoulder" view of the hunt. With the amount of hunting footage out there I think people are getting tired of it. I can honestly say if I never had to watch a video of an eastern whitetail shot out of tree stand I wouldn't be that upset.. But in saying that you can take something like that which has been shown a million times and still make it intersting with a little artistic perspective. See some links below to some videos that are paving a new way to documenting and showcasing what we love to do. As far as companies go, Sitka seems to be leading the way. This is were I want to be someday. https://vimeo.com/45541560 https://vimeo.com/41513497 https://vimeo.com/25003719 https://vimeo.com/38869837 https://vimeo.com/30883590 https://vimeo.com/48019910 Hope this answers some of your questions.

    The avalanche chute billy

    Thats just awesome! This is one of my bucketlist hunts for sure! If you dont mind me asking, What did this hunt set you back and would you recommend the outfitter? Jay

    does anybody know this person?

    I could not stop laughing at this one! I really think Amanda should come up with the Lark doll. You know the kind that has the pull string in the back and when you pull it it blurts out famous Lark quotes. She would sell millions!
