Hello All from CT

Hello All,

I'm sort of new to this forum as a full member. I'm looking forward to being here and learning new things. I'm a wedding photographer that is getting into wedding videos. I have two camcorders with my newest one being the Panasonic AG-HVX200. On my web site I have a sample of what I'm getting into with my videos. I'm looking to combine live footage with still images...

glad to be here,

I came at the business from the other angle, starting in video, and adding a partner photographer to add still to my video coverage. But welcome all the same.

First off, welcome to the boards. You'll definitely find a wealth of information here!

Secondly, I watched your 'wedding video' with the video and the stills, and for whatever reason it didn't really appeal to me. I think it kind of felt distracting to have both mediums bouncing back and forth constantly or even on the screen at the same time. I'm not saying stills have no place in video, but I just have a feeling that the end product would work better if you gave more emphasis to one or the other. For example, reducing the number of stills and how often you have them onscreen could help. Or reducing the amount of video you show and giving more focus to the stills.

Anyways, that's my opinion. I think you have a good concept, but I think it will work better if you give the emphasis to one or the other (video or stills).
