I have been working on a disc golf project recently (more about that as it gets closer to fruition). But one of the things I wanted to do as part of it was to learn how well my Canon 7D works with video and disc golf.
I have to learn to use it more like a sports camera with the video aspect, but a few of us went out for a few hours and shot some urban disc golf, as well as doing a few shots at the one local course.
On this nice and lazy Sunday, I hope many of you are out enjoying the weather (or, might be hunkered down with some football!). Alas, I wanted to share a few videos I tool Saturday.
The first I am going to show you is an urban disc golf setup. That was the main focus Saturday. For this one, we set the disc up at a bus stop. This was a trial run. I like how it came out. It got us (and the lady in the bus stop) to chuckle a bit. We have better ideas for this shot and are hoping to do it soon, as well as some other disc golf things.
Take a peek…
As I said, I like how it came out. But I want to work on a few things and expand this a little. It could be pretty funny.
The second shot is at the course. Though I was pressed for time and was looking to get rolling, Chuck and Dave went out for a round. They played the white (shorter) tees at Schenectady’s Central Park course.
I was messing with the zoom lens (you’ll see in the video) to see about following shots and such. Being I’m new to trying to film full shots, this is what happens (I still need to learn about settings etc.)
Anyway, Chuck’s drive to the first hole almost turned in to something magical. Take a look…
Hope you enjoyed those clips. As this project gets closer, I’ll blog a bit about it. There will be some more videos as well as other things. Now get outside and enjoy the day!
