I have just cleared out my laptop and backed up my hard drives. My computer is ready for a new year of shooting and editing of a high volume of Leica images and Kodak videos. I have also learnt in the past day how to Embed videos, use basic HTML code and figure out how to format just SOME of a lazy hard drive.
What in your world can you honestly say will wake you up to go and look at something? Perhaps a pair of running shoes, a long journey to break, or even a loved one beside you. But for me it is the confidence that what ever is put in front of me at 5.30 in the morning, armed with my Leica M9 and my Noctilux lens, I will be ready to see it.
I have just returned from the Rallye Monte Carlo Historique, where I was shooting for Scuderia Estense Motul. I thought it would be fun to document my journey with video. Something that I could forget about and just let roll whilst it was stuck to my shoulder. This did not quite happen but I did at least shoot some video and test out the PlaySport with some understanding of what it could do. It is waterproof, it worked in extreme cold weather and we held in the snow for a long long time. It is easy to use, but I wonder how long the battery would last if I used it for extended periods of time.
