1 Stock Footage Clip is Frozen to a Point

I was able to take advantage of a free morning as well as a very crisp cold day to get this shot.  I was hoping for a completely clear day, but the few wisps of clouds you see in the background are actually quite nice.  While the sun coming through the ice IS powerful, I feel this attempt was too "messy" for my personal taste overall.

It was partially due to laziness in not getting my external ND filter and relying on the on board 1/64 the FS700 has.  This made the capture a f/40 (yes 40).  I would have much rather shot this somewhere around f/8-11.  The imperfections/dust on the outside of the window I was shooting out of came in to play a lot more that i had hoped because of it (you better believe those weren't on my lens!).  This was a somewhat selfish decision as well, since I valued the heat in my home and the "newness" of my camera a little too much to have it sitting outside for 2 hours in 4 degree weather.

I did decided to upload this, because although I feel it is somewhat "dirty", and look forward to a much more clean reshoot, I appreciate the dreamlike feeling this has, and think it would compliment some of the work a lot of you are doing.  Hope you can find a use for it!

  1. Hello. Thank you for your awesome footage! In keeping with the winter theme, would it be possible for you to make a stock video of something simple like snow falling?

    1. I've really wanted to! Next time it snows here, I'll see what I can get. I've been waiting for the very picturesque large fluffy flakes. Mostly it has been sleety and gross this season. Hopefully soon!!

  2. With the way this winter's been, I'm sure you'll have more opportunities to come!

    1. I've just posted a snow clip. Check it out. I'll try to post a link, but not sure if it will be clickable.
