Dabbling in Video…5 Comments
One thing that has always intrigued me just as much as photography is videography. The main reason being that the perfect combination of video footage and music can stir up a ton of emotion. Music in a video, is like good lighting in a photograph. It completely affects the way you feel when looking at it. I have a HUGE passion for music too, so having the ability to take what I love (photos), make them move and then add music has always seemed so awesome to me. (You can only imagine my fascination with music videos, haha) Since I started shooting photos professionally, I find my self not being able to pay attention during a movie or TV show because I am constantly thinking about camera angles, focusing, camera settings, how the scene is lit, color correction, camera stabilization, etc. So I bought a decent DSLR that will shoot HD video, got some awesome video editing software, a slider, monopod, and other stuff and decided to give it a run. I’ve been slowly studying and learning different techniques in my free time, and I am really having fun with it.
This is one of my first attempts at shooting with my new stuff. Hopefully I can continue to learn and grow in this area.
