Re: 1st attempt with a 7D

nothing wrong with it at all, but it's shot with some pretty standard 'eng' style compositions.

I'd say have a little more fun shooting and try some more fun angles.
For your scenery shots, find something in the foreground.
Also, you seem to have shot on a flat lit day, which is good, but you might want to enhance some of the colors in post.

but like I said, you made a coherent film on your first try so kudos to ya

Re: 1st attempt with a 7D

Nice work.

Just a little tip and if you can afford it, buy yourself a fader ND filter. This will allow you to shoot outdoors in bright sunlight with a wide open iris.

Also dont listen to all the recommendations of shooting flat i.e blacks, sharpness, color etc right down. Shoot to 90% of what you want to achieve in-camera and if you need to tweak it will be a minimal process.

What lens or lenses are you using?

Re: 1st attempt with a 7D

Sorry for the delay guys, Ive been away on a trip.

The lens is a Sigma 18-250 USM. As far as settings go Im using the standrd option as I dont understand how to enhance these in post at present. As for funky angles I have recently added a GoPro to my kit and have tried shooting the 7D from different angles with some interesting/good results.

I have also recently bought a vari-ND so have tried shooting a bit more open.

Thanks for your input so far.

Alan
