Hello people of Bloggertonville,
It's me Collin. Most of you know me as "that guy with the slanted chin" or 'Ricky the extra' from the well-known documentary "Andre the Giant: We Barely Knew Thee".
Well, we had a fire-sale of all our old camera gear and upgraded to a Canon 5D Mark Deaux from our Hasidic Jewish friends at B&H Photo in the City of York but Newer. As some of you know I shoot photos for phun and most the pics on this here blog are snapped by moi. I'm like a fat guy at a lunch buffet concealing his enthusiasm by saying, "Let's see what we have here" about the fact that the new camera shoots 1080P high-def with 1.21 jiggawatts of power running a 6.7L 454-small block to the rotary gurter, i.e, it's frickin awesome!
I made my first video with it this month. It's kind of a story of my wife. And kids. I thought I'd share it. Shot up the canyon behind our house with a 35mm 1.4 lens and a home-made stabilizer (still a bit shaky but cool effect). Edited in plain old iMovie in a couple hours. If any of you local Utahns would like a similar family video, let me know. I'd trade 1000 photos for a 5 minute heart-warming video. Email me if you're interested.
Liz means everything to me. She's an incredible mother. A deep and special person. I wanted to capture a piece of that.
