Since I didn’t go out on the river today due to the blizzard, I played around editing some of the video that I shot on the Chilkat River in the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve near Haines, Alaska. It’s by no means finished — it’s basically raw footage. Eventually, I hope to take all the video that I shot and make it into something more polished. In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy some snippets of just a few places to give you a feel for where I am. There’s no sound as I don’t have a way to edit the soundtrack on the iPad. The little editing I did was done on the iPad using iMovie.
I’m new to shooting video with a DSLR. Main lessons learned so far is that I need to use a bubble level and I need to use my bigger tripod when shooting video. I’m really digging my Singh-Ray Variable ND filter for controlling exposure when shooting video. It makes it much easier.
