Back in September 2015 I had the idea of shooting a bunch of video ‘behind the scenes’ at Freshers Week, with the vision of turning it into a ‘documentary’ of sorts. Some 10 months later I’ve finally started going through the footage & throwing something together, which probably won’t appeal to anybody that isn’t/wasn’t on the Ents Crew, but has still been an entertaining endeavor. Predominantly shot on my a6000 with the Sigma 30mm 2.8 (so no IS), with a couple extra shots from Ryo shot on his EOS M.
Some random shots from throughout the week. For the most part I was taking video, which one day I will put together into some sort of light-hearted documentary. Not sure if it was me or Ryo that took this first one.
It’s RAG week 2014 at St Andrews, so the Ents Crew once again gets to play with thousands of purple balloons (purple is the RAG colour). This year we tried something new & twisted jewel tone (translucent) balloons around strings of (LED) fairy lights – the same way that you twist them around arch line to make an arch. I thought it would be fun to wear my GoPro whilst making one of the lines so here’s the result!
The GoPro unfortunately didn’t pick up the effect with the main lights off at all at the end of the video, but in person it actually looks really pretty & this photo gives a better idea of the beautiful bokeh ball heaven that we created – fairy lights, balloons & f/1.1 is a bokeh whore’s dream :)
