A Father, a Son, a Lady Bug Swarm!

My friend Michael Ramsey is a good guy, straightshooter, and amazing videographer. He shot this. It went viral, gathering over 100,000 views. Enjoy. It’s beautiful. It’s a dad filming a son and capturing some love and discovery…and lots and lots of lady bugs.

And it features one of our favorite artists, Gregory Alan Isakov.

I shot this during the annual lady bug swarm here in the mountains above Boulder Colorado. Mostly meant to be a test to see how the 5D and EX1 footage would cut together. Just had the footage looked at by the good people at GW Hannaway on their ultra high end monitors and it seems, and I am told that, under the right circumstances and understanding the cameras internal codec issues, the footage holds up quite well!

I used Canon L Series lenses (24-70 and 70-200) and a Lens Baby with the plus 10 macro.

Song is Dandelion Wine by Gregory Alan Isakov from the album This Empty Northern Hemisphere. Copyright 2008: Gregory Alan Isakov, used with permission.
