First E-Shoot
 
This is my first crack at an engagement shoot while tagging along with my good friend and talented photographer Brett Jarnagin during one of his sessions.

I don't know if there is a real term for this kind of video. I've just been calling it hybrid cinematic.

I had no video light for any of the night shots.

Thoughts?

you have good ideas, just need to work on steadicam work and you'll be great. It was just a little bit shaky.

Brad...

I loved the colors throughout your video... what did you use if you dont me asking?

I thought the begining timelapse segment was a little long. Maybe some creative text or something would be enough to shift attention.

Great intergration of the photo's. They definatly saved your peice towards the end when the lighting was a little off. Great idea...

nice job...

Absolutely man. Agreed. That's only after a week of playing with the Glidecam here and there. Let me tell you what (in my defense), there is a reason WHY they call Chicago the windy city. Good grief. THAT was hard to overcome.

Practice practice practice.

Thanks Steve. Bullet for colors.

Yeah, I could have added some text but I didn't for two reasons.

1- I'm not that thrilled with the text editing within Vegas and that's all I have at this point. I mean, it works.....but it's nothing outstanding.

2- I was going for an artsy feel at the beginning and I didn't want to have any text to make it cheesy looking. Give up one for the other I guess. In hindsight, I could have cut the opening instrumental part a little shorter and made the time-lapse to match.

I'm sure a lot of people here won't really like the angle that I attack things by adding photos to my projects. While I don't want my work to come across like a PowerPoint presentation, I think that photos can add something to a video. I've received a good response from a lot of people (particularly brides) that like how I'm going about things and the finished product. It's different and people like it. It's a way for the client to see good video and some of the best pictures from the day in one presentation without blowing the dust off of their photo albums.
I know seeing some of my friends pictures on a huge LCD is just amazing sometimes.

It's always nice to hear what my peers are thinking as well though.

Thanks guys.

Hey Brad,
Lots of folks here use the photos in the vid at times. I think it worked out quite well in yours and I've seen it work quite well in others.

keep working at it and your projects can only get better.

Sweet job on the edit. The photos really bring it up a notch, especially at the end when some of the shots were a bit dark.

I had a friend film our wedding 4 years ago, and when I edited it, I used photos from family and friends integrated with the video and it worked really well, especially when there were certain parts of the wedding that weren't filmed. It's something I need to explore more now that this year will be the beginning of filming weddings professionally.
