Don’t Give the Camera to John!


Hey guys. It’s New Year’s eve and it is snowing
outside, which is awesome. So to celebrate I have hired a limo to take me where I want
to go today. Hi. Hello. Hello limo driver. Hello. Where are we going?
I don’t know. Okay. Okay. What ya got there John? Oh man. Um. Hang on… From the store I bought omelette bites. It was like $3.50. There’s two in there. I mean,
they’re gone but they were like that big. I was not impressed. So. Still hungry? Yeah. Are we done yet? Are we done yet? Hi guys! So we are at… well, right now we’re at the Hamilton Conservation Authority and
we’re heading over to Sherman Falls. I’m pretty sure it’s called Sherman Falls.
Come on driver! Come on! Ah ha! He doesn’t want to bring the Tim Horton’s cup with him.
So Sherman falls is really really beautiful. You used to be able to park right next to
it. You are no longer able to do that so we’ve parked up the road at Artaban Parking lot
Dundas Valley Conservation area… and we have to walk. It’s snowing which is cool.
Oh, and check this out. Our hats! These are the Robin-Ruth hats that they sent to me after
I requested them. They’re not paying me to say this. I love these hats. If you like them,
definitely check out their website. I will put it in the description. Oh the snow! Almost there! Almost to the entrance anyway. The pathway going in. Oh look! You can already see it! Awesome. Wow! Wow, wow, wow! What do you think? It’s awesome man. Wow. You seeing all those rocks? They’re pretty cool.
Eh? Wow. And look at the… This is just beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous.
I wish that I had rain boots on just to stand right in the middle at the bottom.
I think I’m going to have to come back in summer and go swimming. So, the camera is going to get wet. Not only is it snowing but there’s a lot of mist flowing
off the water. So I’m going to get set up. A wide angle for sure from the bottom here
and then see what we can do. Okay! Okay so this is going to be quick because
it’s so wet. I have the camera and tripod set up in the water and I’m at ISO 200, f/9.5.
It’s 30 seconds, and a 2 second timer. Now I’ve also done it at ISO 50, f/22, 10 seconds
without the filters. I have the 3 stop neutral density filter with graduated, and the 7 stop
neutral density filter on just to be able to bring down my f-stop and be able to take
this with a longer exposure. We’ll see how it goes. Everything is completely soaked and
it’s cold. What’s going on? Look I’m… peekaboo! Are
we done yet? Are you cold? No, I’m hungry. Those two little things didn’t do it man.
Yeah well, you know, you should’ve gotten the hash browns. I couldn’t remember the name.
Are you done yet? Seriously? No. Damnit. It’s still going. Oh look! 30 seconds! What are
you doing? Taking pictures. Of what man? The waterfall. That thing there? Yeah. What are you doing? Don’t worry about me man. Just do whatever
you’re doing. Uh oh. Alright there’s not much… Can you hold this?
Don’t drop it. He’s got my camera. There’s not much else to do here meaning that there
is a lot, hold on… there are a lot of beautiful pictures I could take here but everything
is soaking wet. So, uh, I do not have my rain gear with me and I think it’s time to… John’s
hungry. Let’s get some food! He ordered these two little omelette bites from Tim Horton’s.
Sorry. He didn’t order two. He ordered omelette bites and there were two in the box. This
big box and these two… haha. Still a sore subject… haha. Oh but look at the waterfall. Alright so thanks for coming along guys and
we’ll talk to you soon. Happy New Year! Happy New Year! Your pom-pom’s in the way. Bye!
Bye!

  1. Looks like John isn't into winter hiking and nature as much as you , but that's a good thing . When you get out into the woods , that is your escape time . Same applies to me when I want to do my videos. My wife's hobby is sewing and fashion design so we both have our fun in different ways.

  2. Your channel is new to me as of a few days ago (where have I been all this time?) and I subscribed right away. I am not a pro and never will be but I'll go with amateur/enthusiast/hobby. You make it all so interesting and fun! Happy New Year to you and your driver John!

  3. You two are the best. And I love the fact that your default state of being is smiling and laughing! It’s priceless and a joy to watch. I can’t wait to meet you someday.
    And thank you John for being the Tim’s Omelette Bites tester and reporting the hideous news. Two little Tim’s Omelette “Barely a Bite” special… I ain’t goin’ there! Sadly, Tim’s isn’t what it once was. And they were $3.50?? Give me a freakin’ bite for that price! Hahaha
    Happy New Year!! 💕🎉

  4. Another great place to photography. Thank you for the recommendation, keep the great videos coming and Happy new year.

  5. This was a different and fun video to watch and as usual it was very nice pictures and John´s video clip was fun to see, HAPPY NEW YEAR and looking forward to more fun and inspiring videos in 2020

  6. Best Wishes for 2020 from The Highlands, Scotland. Your photography journey is an inspiration. Thank you.

  7. I really enjoyed the video! It is so funny! 😄 You and John are such a very cute couple! Your photo works are amazing! Happy New Year to you and your loved ones! 🙏😊

  8. TOO FUNNY!! John eating and driving you around .. where have we seen that before? 🙂 And his handling of a camera .. maybe he should have his own show! Seriously, Becky and I wish you and John a most successful 2020 with lots of fun and a highly acclaimed book. The book is great by the way.

  9. Love the gorgeous shots of the falls almost as much as I loved watching you guys have fun with it. Happy new year!

  10. John: “Are we done yet?”. Rachel: “No”. John then grabs the camera and starts filming hoping to expedite this vlog and go eat! Who knows, John might have discovered that he liked filming and soon would start a YouTube channel! Haha
    Happy New Year to both of you! May 2020 be full of happiness, health and joy for you!

  11. This video was a lot of fun to watch. Loved it! Love the photos too, beautiful photos of the waterfall and surrounding area. Love watching your videos, keep em coming. Love your book too, great content.

  12. What a beautiful spot! And that limo driver has unexplored talents! Have a Happy New Year you two~Hope you both dried out!

  13. Great video work John, you caught the scene brilliantly lol
    Stunning waterfall, huge wow factor. Love the images
    Happy New Year to you both, 10
    Months and counting 😁😁😁🇨🇦

  14. Both inspirational and funny at the same time. I remember walking that route when it was a touch warmer 😁 but wow that waterfall looked epic in the snow!

    Awesome to see more of John on camera you both make a fantastic vlogging team.

  15. Beautiful images Rachel and well done John !!! …a budding videographer for sure 🤣. A very happy New Year 2020 guys 🥂

  16. See if you can convince John to wear a tuxedo next time he takes you for a drive in his limo 🙂 A happy new year to you and John!

  17. Haha, I get the same response if my family joins me for a shoot which is why I usually shoot alone. No one telling me to hurry up besides I usually go early in the morning before they wake up. Good times, glad to see it's not just me…

  18. Happy new year to the both of you. As an aspiring vlogger I think he did well. Steady hands and an eye for compositions, haha.

  19. Been wanting to get outside all day 14 degrees fahrenheit .Got a new drone for Christmas and now it's snowing!! Enjoyed your video,liked the banter between you and Tom I assume that he's not just a chauffeur. We have some Falls close to me that remind we of this . Now i want to head out to the Upper Fall of the Provo River. I live in American Fork,Utah can't beat it. Keep up the good work.

  20. Looks like a really fun day…you should drag John along more often! Lovely images…liked the BW conversions a lot!

  21. happy new year to you both Rachel, yeah loved the mages in that beautiful location, I take it john isn't quite into photography as what you are LOL, seriously looked liked you both had great fun together

  22. Non photography people like wives and husbands will never understand, even though mines long suffering….she gets a glazed look on her face…..typical question "are we done yet"…….just thankful she cares enough to indulge me, and she does like the finished article mostly…….great episode loved the falls, but you should really feed him more, poor man is wasting away….lol….Ps happy new year from us both to you both

  23. As always some wonderful images and a nice insight into your lives. You guys look awesome together, happy new year to you both

  24. Nice job you guys, fun stuff. And Rachel your photography has just grown into fantastic work, really, just wonderful.

  25. Happy New Year, Rachel! Sherman Falls is great! It's privately owned – wouldn't you love to own a waterfall! Hope you have a great 2020!

  26. Hamilton sure has a lot of beautiful resources near you. I live on the prairie in the US and I miss my mountains and waterfalls. Nice to finally meet John.

  27. Happy new year. You love your waterfalls. Sorry John, it's the person behind the camera not the camera. Keep practicing.

  28. haha that was funny. I definitely think John needs to be the camera man more often!! Lovely shots as well as what looked like a great day!! Happy new year guys 😁

  29. Thanks for weathering the storm for us. Great shots. You managed to capture some beauty out of the drab. Plus you saved me a long drive from Baton Rouge. Happy New Year to you and John. I Enjoy your videos.

  30. Lesson learned. Don´t bring a hungry husband (or wife) on a photo session. 🤣 and all the best for the coming year.

  31. I smile the entire time when I watch your video’s. What more can you ask for in this crazy world. I just started watching your channel. I found you by watching Mark Denny’s channel.

  32. Dear Rachel ,just want to wish you & tour family a happy new year from a fan in Montreal canada all my best

  33. Awesome video, nice to meet John, you are correct, don't give the camera to John, instead, give him food!!. Great job.

  34. Happy New Year Rachel and John. Images were fabulous & I loved the video and in between laughters with the way John handled the camera and held up his hunger. Cheers!

  35. Hey guys, it was nice to see John clean the snow off the roof of the 4×4… We see people driving here in the uk with the car totally covered in snow, and maybe unknowingly breaking the law… I'm with John regarding the food – most important to get the proper larger portions… Great Vlog, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you all get upto in 2020…. Happy New Year to you both… xx

  36. Hilarious! Happy New Year to you both. You should do more double acts! John brings a great freestyle approach to, erm, "composition"!! Kinda reminded me of the Blair Witch Project…. Perhaps the start of a new photography genre….

  37. Hey Rachel! Your Limo… had plenty of room for rain boots and gear, but we always forget something or won't think we will need stuff! Most of the time I take to much and never use it all. I really loved the B&W of the bridge. I really enjoy your videos, all of the movement and music just seem to be perfect! Hey John… you seem more like me… always forgetting to bring food! Ha…. Sayin' hey, Greg

  38. Great coverage of the falls…as you were approaching the area before you parked your vehicle…I honestly was thinking of Hamilton,not knowing where you were from.I've recenctly visited Tiffany Falls…never been to sherman falls?And undenounced to me I see your location on you tube that READS>>Hamilton! OMG…I nearly flip behind my chair…I was ssso surprised you are so close!! Being from Brantford…I was elated to see we had not only have camera's and earger to learn but we love waterfalls too!. Happy New Year! Loved this video,for sure. 🙂
