We can learn a lot from watching old films and old television…

You often play an instrument to help you relax and think clearly

The wind outside howled as it made it’s way up and around the shape of the car parked at the top of the hill. Ahead nothing but the white of clouds could be seen. These clouds had not obscured for long. Just 15 minutes ago you could see the valley below.

I then found out that none of my current editing solutions accept H265. For this reason I spent the next day getting beauty shots of Nyon, handheld and in full automatic. From the variety of scenes above you can see where the camera is well suited and where it struggled. You…
