Bill Putnam Photography Video
I keep my video and multi-media pieces at Vimeo
A short multimedia piece I shot last in July 2010 of an Alpha Battery, 3-320 FAR, fire mission at FOB Boris, Afghanistan. The video was made with a helmet cam taped to the side of my D200. The mount was taped on with gaffers tape. Stills were made with Nikon 10.5mm f2.8 lens.
I shot this piece in 2008 at the world famous Punkin Chunkin. Every year for 20 years a hundred or so teams gather in a massive farm field in Delaware to shoot, throw, toss or heave 10-pound pumpkins. I found Team Hooter Shooter late Saturday afternoon and hung out while team captain Ricky Nietubicz practiced shooting punkins across the field. The next morning we met up and I shot them doing their one official shoot for the day. A few weeks later I teamed up with Caroline Couig, an awesome multimedia editor at Discovery, to edit what I had down to something manageable. After lots of stress and lots of coffee we had the piece. Here it is.
