Costa Rica Through my Lens

Beautiful Costa Rica! What can I say… I had a blast! 2 weeks of pure pleasure. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ve seen some of my Costa Rica iPhone shots and video clips as my trip progressed. I even did a “before and after” Lightroom video tutorial on one of my photos.

All I can say is WOW! If you love nature and wildlife, you’ll be like a kid in a candy store over there. Get yourself a 4×4 jeep, a GoPro HD video camera and just let your imagination run wild. You won’t regret it!

For video clips I mainly used my D300s and my GoPro HD (with helmet gear and suction cup for the jeep).  Doing video with the Nikon D300s with a 80-400mm VR lens on was remarkable. I got chills filming those hummingbirds at 400mm. I felt like I was watching a hummingbird documentary on National Geographic! And the GoPro…. totally amazing! The only thing with the GoPro is that you can’t view your clips since it doesn’t have an LCD screen so I had to wait till I got back home to view them since my Epson P-300 backup couldn’t read them for some odd reason.

Ok, ok… without further ado…. enjoy the montage. Please let me know what you think about it in the comments! 🙂



Here are some great books from the YPS bookshelf.

  1. Absolutely stunning.

    I wish you would have strapped the gopro to your shoulder while you were in front of the computer post-processing your images and editing this video 😉

  2. Great imagery! Looks like you had a great time!

  3. Très sympa, bravo ! Bon choix de musiques également…
    Ça semble avoir été un voyage haut en couleurs !
