Wendover Woods – an autumn walk


A wonderful UK sunny autumn Sunday took the family Robertson out for a walk in the woods. Wendover Woods just outside Aylesbury is one of the best woods in the area. I took my trusted Canon 550D and 20mm lens to record the events plus my first proper use of the recently installed Magic Lantern firmware. I also kept the camera on manual exposure which I didn’t always get right but was fun to experiment. I also has the picture profile on settings suggested by “Philip Bloom” on Vimeo. A small bit of colour correction using Sony Vegas and a backing track from a The Caretaker Race completed the edit before uploading to YouTube.
