The Lost in the 50’s Parade is one of those annual events in Sandpoint, Idaho that I hate to miss. Often my sports photography schedule creates conflicts as all of the high school spring sports hold their state tournaments on the same weekend. Thankfully this year three of the Idaho State Softball Tournaments were being held only an hour away from Sandpoint so I was able to skip the final set of games for the day and surprise my family by showing up to watch the parade with them.
Usually when I attend one of the annual parades I take along my camera and then as a gift to the community I give the participants digital copies of their photos free of charge. This year, however, I am working on incorporating more video into my workflow and I decided to produce a short movie featuring the parade, participants and spectators from my vantage point. To produce this video I used a Canon 5DIII on a ground level stand with a 14mm wide angle lens to capture the overall parade and a Canon 1DX with a 70-200 F2.8 II lens on a monopod to capture clips of some details. I infused the final clips with music from Audio Blocks, a royalty free subscription music service.
