Today I wanted to share with you one of my first attempts at video production, though this is in no way to be considered an attempt at a "professional video" but more of my first considerable success that I deem worthy of sharing, not to mention, that it has a photo to go along with it :)
So a few years back when I was playing with different ideas and still feeling things out, especially with lighting, one culmination of such was an outdoor, night time photoshoot of Samantha and her kick-ass bike!
The idea was to run a super long extension cord from the studio to the parking lot and put as many sandbags as we had on the giant lights so that they wouldn't blow away on a cold wintery night, sounds pretty ideal, no?
So once we weighed down the gear for even hurricane like winds and got the technical stuff out of the way, I gave a friend my small camera and he filmed some of the shoot, more for fun than for professional or any type of use really.
That footage sat on my computer for about 2 years or so, as I have little to no experience in video shooting or editing, until now.
I managed to teach myself some of the basics of video editing, and I mean very basic, and this was the only footage I had that could actually produce something somewhat meaningful.
So with that, I hunkered down at my computer and began my trials and errors in the hope of getting at least a showable clip out of it.
At the end, considering the quality of the footage, my inexperience and the manner of which it was filmed in, I was rather pleased with the result!
So here's one of the final images from that shoot with Samantha (and her bike), followed by the video below it! And with that being said, thanks for checking out this weeks post, hope you enjoyed it!
