First I would like to thank Meadow Ryann for providing the music for this video. She is a great artist and can be found here: http://www.meadowryann.com/
Shooting a video of Louisville in all four seasons would never have crossed my mind four or five years ago. I just started a new job after leaving a a startup where I didn’t feel like I fit in and was constantly over worked. With the start of my new job at the time I had my evenings and weekends back and was able to learn a new skill, timelapse. It was only after shooting “Louisville in Motion” and receiving such a positive response that I eventually decided to shoot the remaining three seasons of Louisville.
Winter is rounding out the last season for the Louisville video collection. I love the way that snow can totally change the look of a city or landscape, the only problem with capturing it is that it usually melts so quickly around here and it only snows enough one to three times a year in Louisville to make a video like this.
This video was shot over two years and I believe I ended up recording one day each year. The first year was shot with a Blackmagic Pocket Camera on a DJI Ronin Gimbal and the second year was with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional. There’s not too much else to say about the video, I always appreciate the amount of color correction I can do with a camera that shoots in a raw format. I ended up changing the color of the river with the Phantom 3 shots from a mud brown color to a light blue. There is definitely a little color blocking going on in a few parts of the river scenes but I felt that it was small enough and the color correction added enough to make the compromise worth while.
I hope the video has been enjoyable and I look forward to putting out more content this year!
