First Official Video Shoot as a DoP

Posted: February 14, 2011 in Projects

Wow this weekend, was my first official video shoot where I was DP and Lighting Technician or Key Grip…not that I know anything about lighting seriously but I know what looks good and I know about exposure. It was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work. Things we didn’t think about while preparing for the shoot, reared it’s ugly head as we ended up with 3 T2i’s on set and have to edit all 3. Note to self, need a clicker (lol)

We used 3 T2i’s, one with EF-S 18-55 stock lens, the other with the Canon 50mm 1.8 and then last with a Tamron 70-300. All were set to 60fps (to help with nice slow motion) – More to come…

Wow, got my 28-135 lens IS with USM man it is so nice. Works like a dream. And I love the always active manual focus. Will post some shots from this shortly! Met a really great guy that was selling it and had a great time conversing about many things under the sun. Taught me a few things that I didn’t know! It’s always nice to meet a new friend and learn something at the same time. Well I’m out for now, gonna get some more DSLR Learning done!
