Here's a a multi media piece I did about a recent trip to Colonsay. Part of the technical detail of doing 'travel documentary' is the sheer weight of kit you would need to carry. Here we just used a couple of DSLRs, an Edirol recorder and a lot of patience.Grabbing shots when you are essentially rough riding in a beautiful terrain is quite tough. I wanted the spontaneity for grabbing good shots first time, versus hours afterwards cropping. I am also open to comments, thoughts and opinion about the number of pictures you need to create a good narrated slideshow. The pictures change roughly every 6 seconds and this means 15 minutes requires about 150 photographs.I toyed with a picture every 4 seconds and the number obviously went up.Consider this, for a printed media feature, you might need 6 quality images; the task of the 'Rap' series starts to emerge. We are trying to give you the patient viewer interesting and visually engaging images. I could go on but it would sound like I'm moaning. That's not true. I love the challenge of bringing a landscape or town to life. It's an absolute joy that I hope we have managed to pass on.
