Had to share this. I’d love to be doing what he’s doing right now. Kindred spirits and all.
The photograph is dying a slow death. Or is it already dead?
(video is not mine)
Shot with a 5D Mark 2 with
50mm 1.8 65mm 2.8 macro 85mm 1.2 24-105mm f/4-5.6
Camera in the film is a Deardorf 11x14 made in 1920.
A few clips from the first day of shooting
Created for Mammoth Printshop
A few clips I shot as an experiment on Tybee Island. I’m getting into stock video work, but obviously I need some more practice.
Thought I’d post it here for fun.
Something must have happened from 0:57 to 1:05 because there was supposed to be an additional tanker clip but it must have gotten cropped out.
Music: Your New Constitution by Life at Sea
So if you’ve been paying attention you know that there’s been a new music video in the works (and has been for some time).
Well its out now and available for download on itunes. Or you could just watch it here.
Director/Producer: David Lehre
My contributions included the actual merry go round/singer footage and other B roll segments around the carnival not including the actual concert.
My good friend Alessio Summerfield was also on set helping out with lights and blocking.
Looking forward to some more videos!
The last music video I worked on is now live. Give it a look-see-listen. Directed by my good friend Alessio Summerfield.
Unfortunately I was not able to work on the entire video, but I was able to work with everything involving the bowling alley.
I’m happy with the video, although I do think some changes could have been made. I’m looking forward to music video #3.
The video I shot with Alessio and David Lehre should be up any time now. The song we shot it for was Mary Go Round by Josh Golden which is actually available on itunes.
Today I played a Director of Photography for a friend of mine. We shot a music video for a local SKA band in a bowling alley.
It was far from a major production, and as such we had very limited resources as far camera strap-ons go, i.e. follow focus, steady rigs, etc. We improvised by using a tripod column held against a shoulder on a ball head. Its nothing like a steadycam, but its better than hand held. This is the second music video I’ve shot in the past month, and there may be more on the way. We’ll see.
Here’s a link to their website. Ill post the video as soon as its ready.
Now I have a 5 hour drive back to Savannah. Did I mention its 7:27pm in Auburn, AL? We should arrive at about, oh say, 1:30am Savannah time.

Shot for Mammoth Printshop
Shot on a Canon 7D with a 50mm 1.8II
Time lapse segments were shot with a Canon Digital Rebel XT using a graphing calculator as an intervalometer.
Thought this video had some great wide angle footage. Normally I’m not one for snowboarding videos, but its hard not to like this one.
Yeah, thats right.
I’m making the switch to full frame.
Some of you (probably no one) might be familiar with some of my first posts regarding the 7D and its performance. I got the 7d and loved it, but as I started shooting I began to realize that this camera was not made for someone of my shooting style. I do a lot of low light and shallow dof work, and the noise put out by the 7d did not make life easy. I have a problem with a camera having features that I shouldn’t use, (iso 12,800 being completely unacceptable).
I wanted a camera that was able to record video, but I didn’t care as to the quality so much as long as the still capture was good.
Well, the 7D ended up being a camera that was great at shooting video, but only ok at taking stills. I needed a camera that was great at taking stills, and ok at taking video. Enter the Canon 5D mark II.
The full frame sensor allows for greater image quality, higher resolution, less noise, greater dynamic range, and a more shallow dof. Not to mention there no longer being a need to multiply the focal length. The 5D Mark II does shoot video, but there is not as much effort put into it than in the 7d. I haven’t received the 5d yet, but it should be here within the next couple of weeks. I’m having to sell my 7D as well as my Hasselblad (croak) to pay for it, but in the end I think its worth it.
Keep checking up on the blog to see my review/thoughts on the switch to full frame.
—-I should note that the 7D is more than ok at taking stills. It has great resolution, but there was softness in the images that I didn’t appreciate. The 8fps was great, but I think I used it in the field once. It has great features, but just wasn’t for me.
