1 Clip is a Little Foggy

This clip was taken early in the morning in a very mountainous area of New York State.  I was actually visiting my extended family, not really looking to get any footage.  The area was beautiful and I only had one 16GB memory card on me that had the Magic Lantern Firmware.  This meant that I only could come home with one time lapse (lesson learned!).  This was, I think my 6th attempt at something.  The previous day, I had captured a couple of cloud formations that I thought were nice.  Each time I deleted the contents of the card to capture something "better".  The next morning I woke to the mountainside covered in fog.  So ... I deleted the previous day's time lapse and took a risk.  While I feel it turned out great considering it was shot off of the front porch of my grandmother-in-law's house, I do feel the deep focal length hurt the shot a bit.  The shot was composed between two foreground pine trees on each side of the lens, a home across the street below and power lines in the foreground above.  This far in, it created much more motion that I had hoped for in the shot considering how the background is not established for long.

  1. I wanted to thank you so much! I was trying to get clips to put together to kinda make a teaser trailer for the book I am writing in order to encourage my artsy friends into figuring out how we could make a short movie out of it. So Thank you so much!


  2. Hello my name is Francesco and I am a musician, composer Italian. I write because I used your beautiful scenes to make a video to be associated with a piece of my composition in classical style - symphonic - fantasy. Thank you very much for your time and let you live compliments for your work. I mixed some of your videos in a creative way with videos of other authors who have given me permission to use them. I hope that the result is to your liking. I mentioned Beachfront B-Roll in the description of the video as the author of some scenes. Thank you so much again, expect a comment about music. Hello
