On a quick trip to visit family in Tangra (Kolkata, India) last year I decided I wanted to try filming a little of my trip (my 2nd time going). It was my first attempt at using my DSLR and shooting video using manual focus (fun and also difficult!). But after getting home and rewatching all of the clips I felt nothing made sense together, so I forgot about it. Today, over a year later, I decided to try to make it work. Sort of as a challenge to myself and I also just didn’t want to waste the footage I took (even if a lot of it was out of focus).
Well, here’s what I came up with. Shot on my Nikon DSLR 5100.
I’m also thinking of getting together photos I took from my first trip just to have on this blog. I posted a bunch on my tumblr, but I never update it anymore. We’ll see!
