My plan is to hike and document flowers, foliage and wildlife along the way in both video and still photos. Shooting along water would also be nice. I won't hike very far, the idea is to spend most of the time capturing the outdoors digitally.
When I return home, I'll begin to edit these video clips and photos into a few short videos on my iPhone (if they are any good) to post on Facebook and this blog. I'll write a brief word or two on editing with Adobe Videobite once I use it. It is a free app I downloaded.

My years of media experience will have me record voice-over audio on site, on camera. I'll be using my new Audio Technica lavalier microphone for all voiced shots. Wild and natural sound will be captured from the built-in camera microphone unless there are noise or wind issues.
I may look a bit weird with headphones and a microphone clipped on with the tripod suspended from my pack and my iPhone in a case on my waist, but I have looked much weirder and heavier before when working in the media industry. This time I will be shooting video for myself.
