Íon (Scotland 2015)

Íon (Pure)
Man. I am stoked to share this.
Scotland is an unforgettable place. The people are warm, the mountains wrap you in wind, and out in the country and by the sea, it's easy to feel lost, yet so much at home. Scotland will always hold a place in my heart. My absolute favorite moment from the journey was filming in the base of the Three Sisters mountain range in Glen Coe. There was a Scottish bagpipe player playing amazing grace from the opposite side of this valley, but you could hear the echo of it throughout the whole mountain range. And it was just vastness, beautiful sounds of music and wind, and blue skies up above the mountains. It was divine and surreal. I'm blessed to have been able to trek Scotland up and down this past summer, and to have had a break in between finals to binge-edit this video. It's the little, recreational projects like this one that make me love what I do. I really hope you guys enjoy watching it, and getting to experience a little bit of Scotland, from me to you :)
Technical Stuff:
- Filmed over ten days, with 75% of the footage being handheld, the rest on Manfrotto monopod or DJI Phantom 2. Cameras used were the Panasonic GH4 and Canon Mark iii. I only brought along three lenses, the Tokina 11-16mm, Canon 24-70mm ii, and Canon 70-200mm IS ii.
- I wanted to keep everything really light, as we were only able to stop at each place along the way for about 5-15 minutes at a time. Isles of Skye was particularly hard to film because of the crazy wind speeds making the shots hard to keep steady. I was basically swapping lenses like mad and running from trail to trail to try and grab as many shots as possible, haha.
