Hello all
I had some great fun in Wales last week, working out better ways to shoot straight-down clips over cliffs and waterfalls.
And I put together this short video to make use of the footage and show how to tinduce that feeling of vertigo


Enjoy the view


cheers
Ian

Nice video Ian, thanks. I wish there were some equally beautiful places here in flat Denmark.

You just have to show the jump over the edge too !!!   

PS. You need to find yourself a better place and manage from if or when ..........

I think Denmark is up there with Belgium for mountainous terrain But you should be able to use some of this stuff even flying over trees and buildings...

Good to know Ian ! So you know Malta well enough, its a Small Island, you will never get Lost here.
If you upload some Videos of Malta that you took send me the link when you have time. I have half my family living in London too.

Cheers Mate !

Beachy head would be amazing to fly over!   To be honest, I had to sit down on a rick when I was shooting the waterfall shot; you really do get a bit of vertigo as you watch the screen as you actually fly over....  That waterfall drop was some 60 metres

Cheers again

Another good video and tutorial Ian. I have yet to get a perfectly smooth video, even with the settings of your previous video.
I think it might be because i am more focused on the photography side of things and don,t concentrate on video until it is totally messed up.

Thanks matey. Photos don't get affected by the camera movements like video does.  The moment you start filming, you need delicate touches on the controls.  And remember that it's all about editing. Everyone gets jerky movements occasionally; those just get edited out
