Over the last few weeks I've been working on this project for the WWT London Wetland Centre in Barnes.
It was a great project to be involved with and I'm really pleased with the results.
Filming luckily coincided with my having a Vinten 3AS tripod on loan from them so it was a good opportunity to put that through it's paces. It performed well, even though the setup I was running was a bit heavy for the spring in the head. Vinten are kindly sending me a stronger spring to try out though.
Most of the wildlife shots in the film were shot using my Sigma 100-300 F4 lens on my Sony EX3. I used the Adaptimax adaptor to couple the two. The landscape shots were all using the standard EX3 lens.
The London Wetland Centre are showing the film in their Art Gallery so if you're down there check it out!
