So when I was in Kentucky earlier this month, one thing that I REALLY wanted to do and come back with was a video montage from start to finish of my entire trip down there, right from the second I left my house to when I got back.
I did not bring any of my video cameras with me but I did bring my NEW GoPro Hero 7 Black with me, that I had just acquired a couple weeks prior to my trip, after testing out a friend's copy and fell in love with it so much that I ended up buying one for myself. I have never been a GoPro fan (always favored the Sony's) but the new 7 Black is one very impressive piece of gear that I have some great uses for.
Unfortunately, as much as I tried to do a creative and super fun video montage, it just was not possible. My hands were absolutely tied with pictures and capturing all the other moments, so getting video throughout the entire trip would have either required another person to be with me or have completely separate days just to film make. Shooting a video montage from start to finish on a trip requires a lot of time as you are constantly recording and I just could not find the time for it.
However, I did get a very short clip of one very cool building down in Lexington that caught my eye, the Thoroughbred Center! Just the outside, as I was only there for a few minutes and it was raining out but a very nice training center nonetheless. I could only imagine how it looks in the Spring and Summer months. I just love historic buildings with clean lines and strong architectural accents.
