While travelling, I’ve always focused on the simplicity of photography and have never put much effort into capturing video. However on my last trip to India and Nepal, I started recording short clips hoping that I might compile enough footage to put together one of those video montages I often see travel bloggers create.
After finally sorting through all my material, I started working on a video edit that surprisingly came together in just a few hours. Hey, not bad for a first attempt. Though I did eventually go back to make a ton of micro-adjustments and ended up reuploading it to YouTube about five times.
The video is named after the G Adventures tour I was on – Delhi to Kathmandu. It plays to the tune of “Indian Summer” by Jai Wolf which I feel really helps to establish the tone and pace. Most of the clips were shot on a Canon 6D with a few from my Samsung Galaxy S6. While the quality is far from perfect, I’m satisfied with a few good captures that worked seamlessly with the soundtrack.
