New Year’s Day Walk

New Year’s Day Walk

Nancy and I decided to start the New Year off with a nice walk through the neighborhood. I also wanted to get familiar with my Panasonic FZ2500 camera. Since I got this camera for video, I wanted to experiment with the various picture styles in order to find one that I really like and can work with in post.

We found 2 video opportunities during our 4.3 mile walk. The first was at a small outdoor hockey skating pond; the second was at a geese gather off the Boone creek. The hockey video really sucked, but the geese one was okay.

My settings were:
v-Log, –1 sharp, –5 nr
1080p, 30fps, 100mbs
Post processing in FCPX, with the Leeming LUT G4 applied.

Who Turned on the Freezer?

This third weekend in November saw the temperatures drop 30º – 40º on average. Looks like winter has arrived. The snowblower is prepped and the April-air filter replaced. I guess the house is ready, but I’m not.
