New clip to share (beautiful bride, venue, + an accidentally amazing Glidetrack shot)
Richard Wakefield Richard Wakefield is offline June 26th, 2009, 05:07 AM

hi all,

here's a new clip to share:

Kayleigh and Steve - Wedding Highlights on Vimeo

and the glidetrack shot i'm referring to is between 1:50 - 1:57. I turned the camera as it went up, and then down, the Glidetrack...and it worked out accidentally well! might have to do that again!

cheers

hey Susanto,

well actually i don't ever mic people up during the speeches. ok, i don't get the clearest possible audio and i admit that, but i prefer to use a trusty Rode Videomic (shotgun mic) on the XH-A1.

cheers

i've used the videomic as my primary recorder for every wedding for the last 3 years and it's never once let me down...def. recommended!!

...and i thought the NTG2 was meant to be much better?!

Hey Richard,

First of all, you've got some really strong work on your site. Really impressive stuff. Some of the cleanest 5D I've seen around. I'm not a huge fan of the fish-eye myself, you seem pretty steady barecam, is there a reason you favor the ultrawide look? I noticed your 5D + PPro workflow and it seems to be doing really well for you. Congrats & keep up the great work.

-K

Hi Kevin,

thanks for the comment. I hate to break the bad news but there is no 5d stuff in there (although I do have one now).
And as for the fisheye, the only reason I use it is because I've not yet decided on a suitable wide-angle lens to add to my equipment list :)

cheers

Hey Richard,

I enjoyed that. Great shooting, colour grading, etc.

One thing that bugged me was the camera shake at the end of the opening shot. Couldn't you slomo the shot down to remove that?

Cheers...

Richard..

Very cool way of shooting the receiving line... I might steal this idea from you. I hope you dont mind.

Also, were you using MB looks for color grading?
