Below is a short video I put together from shots I took during my trip to Beijing last week. It’s nothing fancy but hopefully can give those who’ve not visited a small taste of the grandeur of some of the main sites there. As the country’s cultural and historic centre, Beijing is not to be missed if you visit China and is a good place begin exploring the country as a whole (although somewhat misleading if you expect the rest of it to be like this).
I’ve not had much time to pay attention to the technicalities of shooting video yet but hope to improve in the future. Like taking good photos it needs time and patience which are often lacking when you’re travelling with others hence why I sometimes prefer to go alone. In this way, you also have a bit more space to soak up the atmosphere and go at your own pace although in general, I’d prefer to share the experience with others.
…whilst for most the scenery is spectacular for others it was nothing special!
