See if you can hire ND grads or sunset filters, they are very helpfull when you are shooting exteriors.

A polarizer would help you bring clouds out and control glare off of streams.

Pack extra pairs of socks and bug spray.

Cheers!

hmmmmm...............thanks a lot
sure these will be a great help


between m taking 2 cameras for interviews, one host and a guest, and m not planning to place the cameras on typical positions, one on master center and second on the closeup of the guest, rather what i m thinking of is place a camera witch takes the OTS to host (showing the profile of the host), hence we can zoom slowly to get the closeup of the guest, and 2nd cam can be put on the long shot. what u guyz say

Your first name gives me hope for you in this particular endeavor.


hey Tom Lowe! couldn't understand u man.
