    Default Clay Pigeon Shooting

    Went clay pigeon shooting yesterday as part of a stag do. Good fun, but bloody expensive for what it is.

    It works really well as a montage, short and lots of visual variety (different shots, different angles and different framing). The sound was a little too low at the end but otherwise very good.

    Lock and Load..

    I really enjoyed that, you caught a sport which is difficult to frame..

    I feel the shooting sounds could have been louder against the heavy sound track.
    I know nothing about youtube, even less about video

    Never done it. Doesn't interest me. But you film seems to capture the spirit of the sport very well as well as the enjoyment of the participants.
    It wasn't until Leo's comment about it being "difficult to frame" I thought about that - and yes, I can now see what a good job youve mde of it.
    Great mix of shots as well.

    Those were my sentiments exactly. After a few rounds I started to have fun, but I wouldn't go again.

    As for 'shooting' the 'shooting', I almost fell into the 'trap' of filming the same angle over and over again. Particularly as I was there to play rather than film. In fact, I was a little disappointed I'd concentrated on the shooting too much. What you see is really just about everything I filmed (together with a fair bit of sky and ground). Really wish I'd got more reaction, set up and cutaway shots. But as ever with shooting for fun, you have to strike a compromise between having fun and filming.

    I find it is very difficult to enjoy an event and to film an event.

    If I film I go into camera operator mode and forget to enjoy the event.

    If I try to enjoy the event all my shots are poor.
