Saldivar South Padre Vacation 2017

by on Jun.18, 2017, under Family, Film making, Photography, Sony A6000

Been one week since we’ve been back from our annual Saldivar Vacation. This year (2017) we decided to go back to South Padre Island and “complete” the vacation. See 8 years ago we went but Joaquin got really sick and we basically drove back. This trip felt like we closed the loop. 

Read about that here – Joaquin got sick

The video above is from Day 1 and I didn’t bust out my cameras the rest of the trip. Elizabeth told me not to make it “work.” So I didn’t. I did add a gallery below so if you click on images for a larger view. I did create some time lapses using my Sony A6500 and I’ll add those later.

Sony A6500 noisy camera clip hack

Ever since I’ve been filming with my Sony AK series, I always get this annoying rattling from the metal camera clips that are attached to the camera. These help you keep straps on the camera but when you take the camera strap off – they rattle and the onboard microphone picks up the sound. 

I didn’t want to remove them since I only remove the strap when film by hand or on my motorized 3 axis gimbal. I had asked some photo groups I’m part of but they just said to “cut them off.” 

“Nope.”

I found this video online and it was BRILLIANT – link below. 

So basically  all you need are the “cups” of in ear headphones – who doesn’t have a spare set for smaller or larger ears? For the Sony, you just remove the plastic black part from the triangular clip and slide those bad boys on. The clips are at “attention” but don’t rattle. And you can still use my new clip system. See the pics below. Click on them for a larger view. 

Love it.

Schumacher Crossing Falls Day trip 3-14-17

SonyA6500-tripod-fallsTMHad the wonderful opportunity to take a day photo trip with my buddy Conny (Imogen) this past Tuesday during my Spring Break vacation. Conny was wonderful enough to drive us up to Hunt TX in her Jeep. 

Way cool. 

I took my Sony A6500, tripod and optimistic attitude that we’d find some “stepped waterfalls” for me to shoot. I want to get that silky smooth flowing water by setting my camera on a tripod then slowing down the shutter speed. It made the water flow look like smoke! Loved it. One thing off my bucket list.

Master Falconer

Elizabeth, my friend Conny and I went to the Renaissance Festival at La Villita again this year. I wanted to see the Falconry show again but was blown away with all of the costumes and events being held. I took SO MANY pictures with my Sony A6000.

Love, love this little camera.

Finally whittled it down to 95! I’ve posted the gallery below so click on them for a larger view

I really had a great time – even got to shoot some stuff on the river as well – some silky smooth water falls.

Enjoy the gallery after you click the “read more” link below.

Had and opportunity to photograph another friend’s band at “sort of” local venue. Took both my Nikon and Sony and was pleasantly surprised with the results.
