Contiki Thailand Video (iPhone 5s slo-mo)

videotitle

I consider myself a photographer, definitely not a videographer.

I’ve always been interested in videos, but have been working with a DSLR without video function for the past several years. I had been hiding behind this as an excuse for not trying to film, but was so impressed with the quality of the slo-mo video function after the purchase of a new iPhone 5s that I found myself constantly recording my adventures around Thailand with Contiki over the past month.

The fact that I was travelling with a group of you-tubers probably didn’t hurt either.

While glancing over my videos during my last few days in the country I realized that I had enough footage to put together a full length video that could nearly compete with that from a professional DSLR, and all from the viewfinder of a phone.

After one incredible month in Thailand…

From bartering in the Damnoen Saduak floating markets to a wild Koh Samui Jeep safari. From a bike tour of rural and backstreet Chiang Mai to mesmerizing fire shows on Koh Phi Phi. From torrential rains to sticky jungle heat. From learning to cook Pad Thai to a lady boy cabaret in the night market.

I present…

    Love the video, Seattle. It’s very simple, but I think it captures the heartbeat of Thailand very well. Photos are swell too! Makes me want to go back ASAP.
