just for laughs...

I just had to post this. This is the final straw in family taking advantage of my choice of career. I had a cousin just tape some random parts of a wedding and wanted the footage just briefly edited and put on a DVD. the footage of course was all over the place, dark and I couldn't do anything with it, but the best part is this.....half of the time they turned the camera 90 degrees sideways as if to get a portrait view of dancing and such...THIS ISN'T A PHOTO CAMERA! :-) haha I'm just baffled..I've never seen anyone attempt this before. If I get a clip of this I'll put it up but I've already wasted enough time !!!

That's hilarious. I just ran across someone doing that too.

I was helping a friend of a friend edit some "interview" footage of a family member. Every other shot they decided to mix it up and shoot the subject in "portrait" mode. Cracked me up as well. Hey, at least they were trying to think about framing and composition! :)

Of course, there was no provision whatsoever for rotation of the frame in the consumer editing software that she was trying to use...Fun stuff.
