What's going on

There is a group documenting the "post-natural" Hunters Point South before it turns into this: http://www.nycedc.com/project/hunters-point-south. This group includes @laurachipley as well as Nathan Kensinger and a larger crew.

My attempt and results

On August 1st, @Eymund, @Lise%20Brenner and I went out with @laurachipley and Nathan and their crew.



Here is a link to my ground photos in dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1cp23thnfp67hc1/AADBf0oPNt_e3fsNPXZRM5nPa?dl=0

Eymund has aerial photos, Laura has aerial video.


Questions and next steps

This was also a practice kite mapping run for @laurachipley who is heading next to West Virginia to do a collaborative documentary on mountaintop removal coal mining.

Here is a link to some of the video I shot using a GoPro. [warning - it's shaky!!]
The Adobe Premiere plugin to correct the GoPro fisheye distortion worked pretty well. You can also apply a warp stabilizer to smooth out the video.
