Helsinki under lock-down – Video from 22 April 2020

2020s, Finland, Helsinki, Travel, Video

Another one of the skills that I am learning is editing video. Thanks to tutorials on YouTube,  I managed to put the video above together as a start using Lumafusion on the iPad. I’m interested to see how this skill can develop in combination with going on bike rides around the city. It was just shot on a Samsung S9 and even though it uses slow motion, the footage is quite shaky. Going to try some other cameras for comparable results.

Love this image of the boat traffic on the Grand Canal in Venice at the end of June 2017.

Achill Island off season video – One Shot Adventures

Loved this video and saw it come up again on my YouTube feed. Posted it before on Twitter but wanted to put it here on my blog. Really nice shots of some parts of Achill even if other parts of the island were missed.

Venice, Italy in the summer. Loved this photo from last year when I was walking towards the Rialto Bridge.

Tech in a Madrid Café in 2003

Madrid Café 2003

Madrid Café 2003

This is what I used for on-the-go tech in 2003 sitting in a café in Madrid. A Psion 5mx and a brick Nokia mobile phone  The Psion had a great form factor that had a keyboard that was just big enough for touch-typing and small enough to fit into a jacket pocket. It also had the wonderful benefit of being distraction-free. 

Not forgetting the camera, a Canon Powershot S30. A remarkably pocketable device for the time.
