As per tradition, we the on board photographers on True North presented a slideshow movie on the last night of our True North Kimberley Ultimate cruise. I experimented plenty with my landscape photography on the trip, shooting and processing quite experimental attempting to explore a new direction with my landscape photography. I also captured a lot of video and some timelapse (thanks Mark for letting me you use your remote!). It all adds up to this 6 minute video, presented on the last night and I am happy people liked it. The video is much better at showing the amount of water in the waterfalls than the stills are. Do view this in fullscreen and in HD please. On the Vimeo page you can download the 1080p version if you like. To my fellow True North adventurers, I will be happy to send you a cd, I have just emailed you.

Captured on Canon 5D Mk II using 50mm f1/2 lens, (awesome lens, thanks Dave) 17-40 f/4 lens (at 40mm this is almost as good as the 50mm, I was surprised) and 24-105 f/4 lens (not a good video lens for landscapes I discovered). Edited in Adobe Premiere CS5. Music by James Horner from Field of Dreams.
PS. Dave’s Phase One behaved remarkably well, no dramas really. Only photo casualties were Mark dropping his Lee big-stopper ND filter and I let my remote release sit 10 minutes in a stream of water before I noticed, it did not like that.
