January Favourites

I used my Canon 5D MkII set to the very highest 1080p HD quality to film an amazingly professional and informative video – honestly, it was great. Oscar-worthy, even.

Actually it wasn’t that great, but it doesn’t really matter anyway because you won’t be seeing it! I failed to take into account that you need a computer with enough processing power to put a man on Mars to do any actual editing of high res video.

But it’s OK. It takes more than woefully inadequate technology to deter me. I recorded it again using my trusty little Canon Powershot G12 (whilst cooking dinner at the same time)! It only took ten minues to film and 20 minutes to edit – I quite impressed myself with my speediness, I have to say.

It doesn’t look as slick or professional as my previous effort but it does look and feel more me (i.e. trying to do too many things at the same time, completely un-prepared, totally wandering from my train of thought… have you ever seen a badger)?

So without further ado, here it is! I present to you my January favourites

I’m hoping to do one of these ‘favourites’ videos every month, including (and consider this like the DVD ‘extras/bonus material’) some online favourites…

Have you got any favourites from January?

      I look at LOADS of photography every month and that set of yours on a cold Belgian afternoon in January really stood out – love them so much!
