News Flash #1

Well, haven't posted anything in here for a while so I though I'd better throw in a post before this blog thing totally falls apart. I've been very busy recently, starting school in Iceland and studying business administration. It's been tough... but interesting and very practical!

Aside from doing school work (math problems and what not...), I've been following quite a bit of other blogs, looking at some neat projects and ideas that are posted out there.

One that I like particularly is this one here:

They've got various posts and video blogs about climbing and mountaineering and give a 'live' update of their expeditions or projects around the world! Really neat and inspiring!

I've also been following really neat photo/HD video blogs: DSLR News Shooter and Vincent Laforet's Blog

Really great blogs with entries about doing professional HD videos with your digital SLR! Really great professional sources with excellent advice and information on how this technology is 'transforming' photojournalism and the film industry!

I really liked this video from Dan Chung from DSLR News Shooter. It was shot on the 7D and 5D MKII, using Nikon lenses! Figure that one?

Last but not least... Recently I downloaded a movie from Big Up Productions! They are offering some of their most recent productions available for HD download! I downloaded the movie 'Progression' and the extras as well. Really neat seeing the dedication that professional climbers have and the amazing projects they are able to take on. The cinematography is excellent, so you get plenty of visual stimulus as well!

I also discovered from there a music artist from Sweden, 'AndreasBeats'. He's got some really nice tunes! Check out his website: http://www.andreasbeats.com/

That's it for now... Should get on posting some images from Iceland and writing the rest of my American journey!
