Gaylord Opryland

Erik and I have been on a quest to improve our shooting skills. One of the big things we have been talking about is creativity, and minimalism. This has pushed us both to shoot more, and with less “toys”. Last week Erik posted his shoot of our trip to summit Mt. Huron, a fourteen thousand foot tall mountain here in Colorado, all done with a small camera and NO toys. It pushed him to tell story with his edit, and his shot selections, and it turned out great!

To that end, when my Wife and I headed to Nashville for a convention she was attending a few weeks after our climb, I decided I would take some time to make my own little video. I was limited to equipment I could take in one bag on the plane. This is what I took.

Canon 5Dmkiii
Ninja 2 Recorder
Canon 16-35 f2.8 II
Canon 24-105 f4 IS
Zeiss 50 f2
Vanguard 225CT Tripod
Manfrotto 701 head

I had a few hours each day where I didn’t have anything else going on, and spent that time shooting the beautiful hotel/convention center we were staying in. It was a ton of fun working with little equipment. I couldn’t do all the fancy moves I was used to, and this forced me to focus on framing, and putting interesting stuff into frame, and letting things happen. It also allowed me to get more shots, and to move quickly. This pushed my creativity, and stretched my skill set.

I learned that while I don’t want to do this kind of shooting all the time, that it IS something I want to keep pursuing. Limiting the amount of equipment you use can really push creativity, and force you to learn the capabilities of what you have on hand. It is a great exercise, and something I plan to keep working on.

  16. No, this is not ridiculous. There was no evidence to support this woman's account other than the fact the cop was drunk. he was found not guilty. Just because you think one thing doesn't mean it's true. Bomber, judge, jury and executioner. No wait… isn't that what you accuse the police of being?

  17. Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I find It really useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and help others like you helped me.

  18. “Admittedly not the most important critique of Sutter.”No, I think the only analysis really pressing at this time is why on hell would he write into a script a scene where his character, restrained on a table, whacks off with his one free hand, while smelling his dead wife’s “patchouli and cum” scented perfume dabbed on the wrist of his former club’s president’s wife.

  19. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive discover one thing like this before. So excellent to seek out an individual with some authentic suggestions on this subject. realy thank you for beginning this up. this site is one thing which is required within the world-wide-web, somebody with slightly originality. valuable career for bringing something new to the website!

  20. I think what the writer of this article is (rightly)trying to convey is that IT is supposed to help the clinician improve the quality of care and help him avoid mistakes (a clinician is human too). Unfortunately some of these badly designed apps do just the opposite. I agree with one of the views that an ergonomist should a mandatory team member to ensure an usable UI.

  21. Thanks for exemplifying the CCSS in action, Deb. It is nothing more or less than being a life-long learner, stepping out of one's comfort zone at times and constantly adding to your scaffolding of concepts, on which you can attach new specific facts about how the world works. The CCSS frees teachers to help children think. Hopefully, it also frees teachers to think as well.

  24. Very novel. Much like that KFC “Double Down” I don’t think anyone ever actually ORDERS one, but it’s good for artery-clogging publicity. Of course, I live in one of the fattest states in the nation, so what do I know?

  25. Everytime I go through the abbreviated process of weeding the wardrobe, I am embarrassed and ashamed – so much stuff that I have spent money on and don’t use – sometimes knowing I’m going to feel that way holds me back from doing more – I really do know, that when I finish the project, and really work with what I need, I am going to feel so good -Must keep at it

  27. Anon:The SCOMET Notification and the WMD Act impede the export of nuclear technology from India to the rest of the world. I really doubt whether the world wants to buy nuclear technology from India. On other hand my post makes it quite clear that Section 4 of the Patent Act impedes the import of nuclear technology by not granting any patents. The entire 123 Agreement is about importing and not exporting nuclear technology and hence Section 4 poses a greater obstacle than the SCOMET Notification or the WMD Act. Prashant
