Re: Cloud service for client videos

I tend to agree with Chris on this re: something physical as a keepsake. I produce highlight films and will provide the Vimeo link to my couples via email initially. Whether they purchase...

Re: Anyone shoot with a Canon 6D?

Hey Rebecca,

I bought my 6D to shoot weddings in October 2014, and have loved working with it so far. At about half the cost of the 5D III, it's a great option to either purchase and cheaper main...

Re: How I hate DVDs....

In terms of USB delivery, do you guys find you need to use USB 3.0 sticks? I've found that USB 2.0 always freezes during playback. Wondering if it's something to do with my export settings, as the...

Re: Canon 70-200mm F/4 vs. F/2.8 for Ceremony

Really looking forward to your thoughts on the church footage at f/4 Michael! I'm in a similar position so would be great to know just how well it goes. Obviously your C100 will be superior for low...

Re: Canon 70-200mm F/4 vs. F/2.8 for Ceremony

I'm in a similar position where I'd love to buy a 70-200 (have hired the 2.8 IS for my first two wedding shoots) and I can see that upping ISO could compensate for the difference in f stop. Issue is,...

Re: Please review my first wedding film!

Thanks so much for the feedback Daniel, and glad you enjoyed it!

Re: Please review my first wedding film!

Hi guys,

Thank you for your opinions and feedback, very much appreciated!

Whilst not from a photography background (just a hobby rather than professional), I must say I do like the shallower...

Re: My First Wedding - would love your feedback!

Hi Adrian,

Thanks so much for the feedback - really valuable being so new to this!

In terms of the reception, I found this really tough as I didn't have a B Cam to sit on a tripod for speeches,...

Re: Editing my first wedding

Absolutely Dave, that's a great point. Will do this when I import media for Wedding #2. Thanks!

Feedback so far - I'm already learning how important the detail 'set the scene' type shots are. I'm...

Re: Editing my first wedding

Thanks Dave. Of the two weddings I shot, I've transcoded the first one in full using Compressor.

Whilst somewhat time consuming, the bonus of this is that I trimmed clips to get rid of shaky or...

Re: First Wedding - advice for a solo shooter?

Nice one Peter. Starting to think I should've got a 70D instead of a 6D. That touch screen AF works so smoothly for a DSLR!

Re: First Wedding - advice for a solo shooter?

Adrian - great suggestion about the pre-focus and let her walk into and out of focus. What aperture would you typically shoot at for this?

Re: First Wedding - advice for a solo shooter?
