Any excuse I can find to make it out to the lake with Potato is a good one!
Here’s a new clip that was posted over on YouTube. Hopefully the quality of videos continues to improve as I’m becoming more familiar with the software/hardware relationship. Maybe we should get a drone for some sweet sweet aerial footage? Let me know what drones you all are using!
I was able to sneak away a little bit early today and take the dog out to the lake. I must confess that I had an ulterior motive with capturing some new video and getting more familiar with Resolve 14. Much better results!
Since I’m still learning all the new software for video editing, I decided to gather a couple of clips from our time in the mountains and at the lake near us. Hope you all enjoy!
Using the most basic of video editing, here’s a compilation clip of our snowmageddon a couple weeks back. Enjoy!
Having spent the past decade living in North Carolina, I can count on one hand the number of proper snow storms we’ve had. Sure, there’s been plenty of dustings and bouts of ice that shut down this ill equipped area but rarely enough of the fluffy stuff to get outside and enjoy it. Yesterday, there were conflicting reports from nearly every channel, leaving our small city in a state of utter chaos. Lucky for Hank the LR4, it was the perfect day to go play in the snow!
Acting as the camera man, I was doing double duty of directing and scouting. Walking back to catch my ride, this framing was perfect.
Having lived around the same area for long enough, you’ll eventually see firsts…This one being the lake that had started freezing over. With floating sheets of ice, you could confuse this Carolina Sandhills scene for something more akin to the northern part of the country this time of year.
Coming up over fresh snow path home from our favorite spot. Gets a little dicey at the end but lets be honest, that’s half the fun!
If you were affected by this storm, I hope you stayed safe and warm! We were lucky to have time off of work to get out in nature and celebrate and hope you did too!
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, our family decided that instead of the awful nightmare that can be “holidays” we would #OptOutside. This is a short clip from Uwharrie, North Carolina. Many of the trails were completely empty so we were able to take our time and film a couple of interesting sections.
One of my favorite all-time pictures of Hank. This is from a local lake in central North Carolina that happens to have some decent trails, great hiking, and terrible fishing. This picture actually came from a video set where I would capture screens for our Instagram
A little over a year ago, a calling to do more and explore the outdoors beckoned. To reach these stunning mountain vistas, secluded forests, or sandy beaches, the perfect vehicle was needed. This is my dedication to all things Hank, the LR4.
