Trouble in the pumpkin patch (photowalking #2 now totally uploaded)

We start out with almost getting kicked out of the pumpkin patch, but it definitely gets better from there. That’s the third part of the second photowalking. Definitely the longest, but that’s cause photographer Thomas Hawk has a thing for tractors. I’ll let him explain.

Oh, Dave Winer, I agree with you that Thomas does great work. If you wanna see how, just come along with us on a photowalk!

It’s like “Diggnation meets Canon.” Nikon makes an appearance too, thanks to Podtech salesguy David Alpert, who was tagging along.

Oh, and at the end Thomas shows off his new Moo Cards (photo business cards). Those things are cool.

Here’s the complete Half Moon Bay pumpkin patch photowalking Tour so far:

Part 1, cleaning his sensor.
Part 2, discovering the pumpkins
Part 3, tractors, pumpkin pie, and more.
The blog post by Thomas explaining all this with links to 60 high res images we made while shooting this video.

  1. For anyone who would like to view these videos on a PDA, I’ve put up a quick set of instructions on how to get VLC to do this for you.

    The core of it comes down to putting the next line into notepad, saving it as a batch file, and dragging a video onto it.

    “%ProgramFiles%VideoLanVLCvlc.exe” %1 :sout=#transcode{vcodec=DIV3,vb=1024,scale=1,acodec=mp3,ab=96,channels=2}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=ogg,dst=”%1-divx.avi”}}

  3. Thomas’s repeated claims of “It’s the Robert Scoble Show” as though that explained everything, made me laugh – I guess he’s had plenty experience of persuading people that he should be allowed where he’s taking photographs!

    Well, that’s another series of these watched and enjoyed, these Photowalking videos are just perfect Sunday-watching entertainment, nice and relaxing to watch.
