After spending 3 months working in the Canadian Rockies, with Peak Leaders, I’m now spending some time back in the UK. It’s been nice to catch up with my folks and enjoy some temperate weather. For three weeks the temperature in Banff was consistently below -30 oC…….that’s far too cold for a Brit!
Over the weekend the beautiful Spring weather in the Cotswolds gave me the motivation I needed to go for a short walk around the village with Mum. As the sun was setting I decided to use the Canon 550D with Canon’s plastic fantastic lens, the 50mm F1.8 . This meant I could keep the ISO really low and limit the amount of noise in the picture. Unfortunately there’s quite a lot of lens flaring in the footage, but I quite like that as it adds to the retro feel of the edit. All of the footage was filmed using Magic Lantern firmware and Technicolor’s Cinestyle profile, which is a very flat colour profile that allows lots of colouring of the footage in post production. All of the footage was coloured and edited in Final Cut Pro X.
