I recently enjoyed a lovely weekend in Norfolk attending the popular Introduction to Wildlife Film-making course presented by the fantastic guys from wildeye.co.uk along with a lovely bunch of budding wildlife film-makers.
I have been using the Panasonic Lumix cameras for some time and continue to be very impressed by their stills photography capabilities. They are also excellent for video work … but less so in my untutored hands! This highly recommended course satisfied my immediate needs although made me realise how much I still have to learn.
One of the practical sessions was held at the lovely Pensthorpe Natural Park - looking rather less lovely in the rain - giving the opportunity to put the lessons into practice using my Lumix GH5 with G X Vario 35-100 F2.8 lens. As an exercise I subsequently edited a few of the clips to produce my first ever wildlife film … it’s unlikely to win any awards but you’re welcome to have a look!
Thanks to Piers, Simon and Adrian from Wildeye for their guidance and a very enjoyable weekend.
