Normally, I wouldn't ask, but what was the name of the song you used. That was beautiful, and totally fit with your graceful camera work.

Also, I sometimes end up with a shot where I have some dust or debris on my lens, so does anyone have any tips on how to prevent and/or catch this? I clean all my lens the day of the wedding, but during the course of an entire day of running around, I find it hard to check my lenses again. Any tips here would be appreciated.

Oh, and I saw the tears on that blonde bride. Gotta love it when you catch stuff like that. Great work!

Very nice work. I'm getting ready to start my own videography business and I hope to produce stuff to that quality. Great job.

Hey Travis, I am in Spokane washington not toooo far from you, the song is from "road to perdition" not sure the name, thanks for the comments gentlemen (Nicholas) I have so much more to learn, I have been able to see improvements in my stuff the past couple of years.

Cheers
Mike

Spokane? How about that? My wife is a photographer and she has a wedding job in Spokane this spring. I've only been there once myself, but it seemed pretty nice.

Again, nice job with the video. I use monopods for my "handheld" shooting, but every time I see video like yours it makes me want to get a steadicam rig.

Michael, sorry it took so long for me to watch. I'm in the process of switching all my files to a new computer and I didn't have quicktime installed.

Beautiful, beautiful imagery. Awesome steadi-cam work. I didn't read all the responses but what camera was that shot with...it looked phenomenal!
I do agree that the piece could definitly be fleshed out a bit with some vo's especially towards the end when the song kind of fades out to a considerably lower volume. Though that's something I've been spending a great deal of time trying to improve in my work.

I don't think it was a C-mac clone at all...it was an original Aemikea clip if I've ever seen one. I've been a fan of your other pieces in the past...you do good work. The clarity, smoothness, and colors are breathtaking. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful!

Really nice Mike. The visuals 'breathe' with the music. Some type of VO or ambient would add another layer, but its strong right now. What type of stand are you using to hold the rig when you go handheld?

Hi Joel, Thanks for checking it out, I am going to try to add some voiceover to it, I too think it would add alot to it, I am going to rework it a little and repost in the future, by the way I am having the packaging made up (one to send to you) within the next 3 weeks. Talk with you soon! I use a mathews C-stand to hold the Steadicam while I go handheld.

Thanks
Mike

Thanks for the packaging examples - they have some real potential to wake us up from the plastic-case era.

I'm going to have to give the Smooth Shooter another whirl. (Or maybe I won't: Not using the vest and arm keeps me going down to the basement to work with the weights...)

I bought one of the first units out last Spring and felt sooooo out of place at a wedding - like Jason mentioned I felt like robo-cop. I just didn't feel comfortable.
