Recently went on my holidays, a short cruise up to Scandinavia – yes it was lovely thanks ….
I have a bit of a geeky interest in time-lapse as mentioned in the previous post, so I took some small bits of kit with me and decided to play around and record some pieces.
We sailed from Southampton aboard the Caribbean Princess which was amazing, sailing to Zeebrugge, Copenhagen, Helsingborg and Oslo. This isn’t a travel guide in anyway, so don’t come back complaining you haven’t seen the little mermaid, or there’re no tips on how to buy a beer for less than 8 quid. It was purely me messing about on a boat, albeit a very big one.
It was all mainly shot on the Go-Pro @ 1FPS. I really wanted to capture the movement of the ship in and around the ports in wide angle, even though we only visited 4 , and one of those was via tender. Also just being a passenger with limited access and no filming clearance, I was restricted to where I could put the camera – hence not many internals. Anyway I’ve put it all together with a nice bit of Bach, it’s only a minute and a half – I would have liked to experiment further – but I was on me hols …
