Biking Through Columbus

It’s been trickier than I thought getting biking footage from the GoPro right. I’ve been experimenting with what to set for the exposure interval, video speed, video length, and how to work around memory card and battery limitations. I think I got it just about right with this footage of a bike trip through Columbus though. Let me know how I did in the comments below.

First Ride of The Season

I’ve been needing a good bike ride lately. After spending a few hours with my buddy, Chris, working on his family’s new house, we decided to take the bikes for a spin. We wound up going around 20 miles round trip along the local trails, and I was lucky enough to have had my GoPro with me to shoot some video.

 

 

The Great Tiger Hunt

What better way to spend a Monday off then a tiger hunt in the majestic forests of Hinckley Ohio? I gathered up my gear bags, met up with my friends and set out into the untamed wilds in search of our quarry.

After hours of combating the elements, we finally closed in on the illusive beast.

However, the scoundrel proved to be more resilient than we imagined! The rifle was not enough to fell the creature, and it came to attack us. With unholy speed and strength, it leapt trough the air and savagely took down the leader of our expedition!

Fortunately, our loyal guide was ready with her bow. Primitive, but effective in stalling the fearsome tiger.

Long enough for our expedition leader to thump the villainous monster square in the maw!

And with that final blow, the horrid beast was slain! Never again would it menace the forest, preying on innocent hunters!

Victorious, we had hauled our well-won quarry back to camp.

Once we got our trophy back to camp, we lashed it to our car so that it could be taken home for a proper stuffing and mount.

It will sit proudly in the study, under which we may sip scotch, smoke pipes, and twirl our mustaches. Truly, this is a tale we will all tell for years to come.

New Fawn

I’ve been taking advantage of the summer weather while I still can. As a result, I now have a huge backlog of photos that need to be edited.¬† These were taken of the new fawn in the woods behind our apartment.

 

A new fawn has been showing up in the woods behind our apartment. It was so fulfilling to watch the little ones grow up last year.

This image, being shot with an off-brand 24-70, came out a bit murky. I did my best to get it all cleaned up, and create enough contrast between the fawn and the forest.
