Lightbulb Stunning Fall Foliage Video of the ADKS

Hello all,

I recently spent a week up in the adirondacks filming a video of the fall foliage. My week long trip consisted of hiking in the high peaks and canoeing in the St. Regis Wilderness. I wont give you all the details of the trip but will instead let you watch the video I created. I hope you all enjoy!

Please feel free to post this on your social media accounts and share with friends. This is how I'm able to take a week off and do these sorts of things

Absolutely gorgeous work! The shots of the night sky are incredible! It's amazing how you can see the shooting stars reflected in the water

Very impressive & totally enviable. I'll be up there this weekend but toting the in-laws along, not going to be on too many mountain tops.

Kurt,

Really, really impressive and inspiring. This is much more than a hobby, isn't it?
You are an artist...

That's great. I know there are quite a few along the Water Gap. Regardless of where it was taken, the pose of that screaming eagle on the end of the branch is really different and very cool!! Thanks for sharing.

thanks a lot! It was a hobby of mine but people started recognizing my work and it's transitioning into something that makes me some extra money.

thank you all for the compliments!!

Kurt,

We just had a professional videographer in here at work to produce an industrial biography, of sorts.
The equipment this guy had was cool, some extended sort of boom, sliding tracks for pan shots, heavy duty tripods with viscous damped heads...neat stuff.

Is that the sort of equipment you're lugging to mountain tops and lakesides?
And then what? Wait hours or days for the right light/weather?
I admire your talent and commitment, hope you can cash in on your "hobby".

Let just say my photo and video equipment cover most of my total weight while out canoeing/hiking. I generally can get away hiking/canoeing for a week with only 12lbs of gear but with my camera gear I can push 50-60 lbs.

I take heavy duty tripod with a fluid video head, camera with 3 lenses, bag of filters, multiple batteries, charger, a lithium battery so i can recharge batteries. I'd go through two a day on avg, microphones and external recorders, a 3 foot slider to get tracking shots. The weight adds up quickly. My next piece of equipment will be a 6 foot motorized slider to get incredible tracking shots for timelapses.

It can be a bit rough taking all this gear but seeing my end results makes it all worth it.

Kurt, the music that you selected for your videograph set the tone for the work. Could you identify the music and the artist?
