The average final run time of my produced wedding video package is about 2.5 hours of finished footage. Each second of that video contains 24 individual images. If you do the math, that adds up to over 215k images minimum! Lets talk about one.Read More
Early in my experiences of learning how to shoot video on the M4T-DSLR Panasonic Lumix series, I found this Minolta 50mm F1.4, on ebay for $70, (as of 3/21/16 this lens is available for around $80) (plus any adapter mount you may need).
That high-pitch audio screech is something I have never encountered. This is the first time I plugged a Lav-Mic directly into my cameras 1/8 input. This is why I need to always be testing and practicing with my equipment.
Make these mistakes on my time, not the clients.Thanks for
Thanks for watching,
Tomorrow I have my first wedding gig of 2016, and I want to start some new habits to keep improving my work. The first thought was, I should study the work of some peers the day before to note some ideas or techniques to try; the second thought was to document and share what those ideas were.
I want to be clear and state this is not an advocation to stealing someone's style. This is about seeing what someone has done, and adding your own style to it.
The video that caught my eye today was:
Daylan + Dillan | Salt Lake City, Utah Wedding Video By: Mark Keysor
(video attached below)
Two things that jumped out to me as note worthy were:
The simplicity of the shots
When I watch this video I spotted a single shot using a slider and no shots (as far as I can tell), with a glidecam or any other fancy stabilization. I love my fancy tools, but weddings are hectic, off schedule and the couple are being pulled in every direction. When I shoot solo, I really need to remind myself to simplify the use of my gear kit, and focus on just having a good spot, a monopod and a quick trigger finger. Even with just that at my disposal I still have: Zoom, Focus, tilt, pan and monopole swivel.
