'Grand Teton & Yellowstone' travel film shot on FX3

Rising Star

Hi, everyone! I want to share my recent travel video from Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Parks. It was a week-long trip, spending equal time in both parks. As a creative constraint, I only brought two 80GB cards, resulting in close to a 1:1 shooting ratio. Some days were more challenging than others, like spraining my ankle after filming at Delta lake and limping 4 miles down to the trailhead (using my tripod as a cane 😅). Overall, I was constantly in awe and can't wait to make it back there someday.

I used a Sony FX3 paired with the 24-70 II and 100-400 lenses. For support, I used a Peak Design tripod and mounted a Manfrotto 608 Nitrotech on it. The MindShift Gear FirstLight 40L was perfect for hiking and traveling with all the equipment (and fitting right into the overhead bin while flying). For settings, I used S-Log3/S-Gamut3.Cine for color, and XAVC S-I 4K 23.98p 240Mbps for recording.

Really like that shot of the bison in the dappled shade of the trees. 👌

Also, how did you capture that shot with the monster moon next to the peak? That's gorgeous. I'm pretty surprised how much of it you can see considering it's only a little waning sliver.

Thank you, Oakley! That shot was captured just after sunset, set to 12,800 ISO, f/5.6, and 1/15 or 1/8 for the shutter. I was lucky enough to have that view at my campsite.

Beautiful work, Josh!  I love the shot of the moon at 1:35!
