  3. Kayaking the Upper Zambezi

    This show is some video taken while kayaking down the upper Zambezi river in Zimbabwe, just above Victoria Falls, with my wife, niece and nephew. The video was taken years ago with a Hi8 camera, so the resolution is 720x480. The file is in MP4 format because the size of the exe is way too big. Plus, the MP4 format will give you the ability to scale down the playing size so the pixilation might not be too bad. I ran it through Mercalli to help somewhat to stabilize the video.

    These inflatable ‘kayaks’ were really unstable. One guy was quite large and kept falling out of the kayak. At one point, we saw a huge hippo lunging toward him, mouth wide open. We all yelled for him to ‘paddle fast’. And thankfully, he did and he did not fall out of the kayak. Unfortunately, I was also too busy paddling away to film it.

    I was afraid of getting the video camera wet so I brought along a couple plastic garbage bags. When things got rough, I wrapped it up. That was a good thing because on one rapid, I got tossed out with the camera, but it came out unscathed.

    Hope you enjoy the trip.

  4. CORDOBA

    A few hours spent in the lovely old city of Cordoba in Andalucía, southern Spain to take a look at its famous mosque - one of the largest in the world and in which is built a cathedral - and the gardens of the Alcazar.

  5. Rosewood Railway

    We were informed about this old railway that only steams one Sunday per month, but being a fan of old railway yards we decided to take a look mid week. The location is just south west of Brisbane and it was a very hot day, about 32c with bright sun and we got there about 2pm..

    So, generally speaking, not the best conditions to shoot images of an old railway where we sometimes struggle with contrast even at the best of times. In bright Australian sun the situation could be a whole lot worse. Having said that, I did have my converted Infra-Red camera with me and I wanted to try that out in those conditions because one thing I have learned with Infra-Red is how tolerant it is with high contrast.

    The images were shot and originally viewed in January, but it wasn't until April that I returned to them and saw some potential. Give yourself a bit of time and you will see your own images in a different light to what you did at the time you took them.

  6. Scotland

    Winner of the UK Photo Harmony, '5 to 8' Competition, organised by Bridgend Camera Club.

    Judges comments:

    “You know when you see the first picture that this is going to be special. The photography throughout is stunning. The Ken Burns effect of gently zooming every image helps keep the momentum going. The "Adagio" from the film "Sunshine" is a wonderful piece and the drama of the music complements the drama of the landscapes completely. Maybe the author should warn the projectionist to keep the volume down during the relatively quiet beginning otherwise the audience will get blown away! The images and transitions are totally in sync with the music. Here is somebody who listens to and knows his music. There is perfect harmony between successive images, shapes, colours, with not a single jarring line or horizon. Great care has been taken constructing this sequence, helped by the fact that the author no doubt has a large number of first class pictures from which to choose. The whole thing builds and develops. Swells in the music are used to highlight the close ups of rocks, barnacles and ice fragments. The percussion is used to show the railway section. When I saw the classic image of the Cullins from Elgol I thought "this is the end", but the final picture was even better. It's clear from the filename (v9) that this has undergone a lengthy period of revision, honing and pruning, so that what we see today is powerful, passionate and intense. This is a good lesson, not to be satisfied with the first attempt. The only criticism I have is that the title is what I would call a "working title". Such a dramatic presentation needs a dramatic title, "The drama of the Highlands" or "Elemental landscape", "Wild Scotland", "Untamed wilderness"...â€

  11. Cold War Scrapyard

    Audio Visual can be many things to many people, but a lot of photographers use it as a vehicle to display the many images they create. We visit places of interest and shoot lots of images, but what do we do with them. If you are a Camera Club member, you may be searching for that elusive competition winner, but you will have lots of others that are still worth viewing.

    Here we have a collection of images shot in just a couple of hours at Newark Air Museum in the UK. Once we have taken the images we need to find a way to display them in such a way that the Audio Visual sequence becomes a photographic free standing project as a whole. We are looking to present the pictures not as a simple batch of images, but something a little better than that. (if we can)

    Music is crucial to the mood we are trying to create and often difficult to find. Then we still have to manipulate the images in a way we feel is fitting to the music and the presentation as a whole.

    Have we been successful? Its always difficult to tell, because we get so wrapped up in our own project and spend so much time on it, our judgement sometimes becomes a little blurred

  12. Contrast

    After our visit back to England from Australia in 2014, I found I didn't have enough images taken in Cumbria (The Lake District) to be able to make the slide show I had hoped for. Lighting and weather conditions in the short time we were there, just didn't play ball. So, when that happens you have to capture what you can.
    I was looking for some music for a Lakeland AV, but was beginning to come to the conclusion that I didn't have enough good images for a Lakeland Audio Visual anyway. Then an idea came to me. I wondered if I could create a mixture of images and music from England and Australia to show some of the contrasts between them

    The sequence contains 4 pieces of music and a sound effect. There are about 60 images, the vast majority of them shot in the past few months. These Audio Visual sequences are a labour of love, with many hours committed to the creation of the images and the final slide show.

  14. Alpha and Omega

    The morning started with clear skies and a promise of a 95% Solar Eclipse.
    At the appointed hour just as the eclipse was to begin the cloud cover arrived.
    Initial disappointment waned as the moving cloud created ever changing images with glimpses of the eclipse through the breaks.
    Even missing the maximum eclipse and the finish as the cloud thickened was eased by the images recorded through the cloud.

    Anyway, there's always 2026 I think for the next time !

  19. Impressions of Venice

    We had an opportunity to visit Venice for a day while in Italy last year.
    It proved to be very overcast and dull except of course when we were taking out leave and then it was glorious sunshine.
    I hope you enjoy the images as much as we enjoyed Venice.
    The music is Vivaldi. When in Venice I discovered the composer was a priest there and spent most of his life in the city of thought it appropriate.

  20. The Bannack Album

    A show of the preserved (not restored) historic mining town of Bannack in the Western USA.
    I wanted to make a slideshow that somehow connected with the people who had lived there 150 years ago.
    The template of the album was some years ago supplied by 'trailertrash"

  21. We are Giants

    My sons and grandsons decided I was going to see the Belfast Giants Ice Hockey match over Christmas 2014.
    This is a sequence of the pictures I took. All shots are from the one position i.e. my seat so the quality of some may suffer from such a high speed sport. Sound was recorded live on the night.

  22. Parapente

    Greetings,
    This is a slideshow of my wife and I and a couple friends paragliding (parapente) in Colombia in December. I enjoy creating stories by combining videos with still images. PTE allows this to be easily done. I like the fact that you can extract the audio from the video and place it in the audio track to have complete control over it. Most of the videos and stills were taken with a Nikon D7000 DSLR, 18-200mm lens. A couple of videos clips were taken with a Nikon AW100 pocket camera. The slideshow is posted in MP4 format because the EXE format came out about 3 times larger. So I just got it under the maximum allowable size for the Slideshow club. I hope you enjoy it. Any comments welcomed. Gary

  23. Pictures at an Exhibition kb control

    As requested this version is keyboard controlled. Press the Spacebar to pause and press again to continue. I don't normally allow keyboard control because of copyright. But what the heck, these are images of some of the most famous paintings in the world and so not mine, hope you enjoy. They are worth lingering on. I certainly lingered when I saw them for real. Be aware though that some are cropped because of the aspect ratio used.

  25. Pictures at an Exhibition

    Modest Mussorgsky visited an art exhibition and set to music his interpretation of the pictures he viewed. I'm not that clever so have done it the other way around and set pictures to his music. The music is over 30 minutes long but the show certainly isn't. Took a long time to shoot all the images I have used, but visited some very famous galleries all over europe, during my usual tourist travels. This show is priceless, well the paintings are anyway. Hope you enjoy.
