The difficulty we found was that although i achieved some good shots leading up to their encounter on the tree top trail, once we arrived at the location the light was dwindling fast. I decided to shoot the encounter anyways, using the steadicam for a variety of tracking shots. However although I felt I captured enough footage to cover this meeting, the picture was so dark and grainy that even if I were to adjust the contrast and brightness on adobe premier pro the picture would be noisy and look horrible. I therefore decided that I would need to re shoot there meeting at a later date.
