Repost. One of my favourite things to do is collaborate with my Partner. This is a short I did with him a few years back. I love watching this, and how he works. It was such a warm evening in June and I loved every minute, capturing this moment with him.
Recently I spent the afternoon with Bren and collected footage of him canning in his kitchen, making curried apple chutney. I’m always interested in the process, and how things come to fruition, so this seemed like an ideal collaboration. I love working with people that I know, there is something so relaxed about the creative process, and the end result with Bren turned out better than I expected.
I shot this wedding video this past summer, and it turned out so beautifully. The weather was perfect and the couple was so gracious, it really was an awesome day to be a part of. The music in the video is an original piece composed and performed by the groom, and the video was shot with my ever handy Canon 7D and edited by myself.
Bren has been apprenticing with a local beekeeper, and has been getting some real hands-on beekeeping skills. I took my camera out and shot some very casual video of Bren doing his thing. It’s so peaceful, and calming being out there. It was a beautiful evening, and the footage turned out great.
This summer I purchased an “Opteka SteadyVid SV-HD Camera Stabilizer” http://amzn.com/B00DRGQETA I decided to try it out when we went raspberry picking at the Mayfair Farms, and I like the end result. The stabilizer can be a bit tricky when you first set it up, but once you get it balanced it works well, and you can get some nice smooth shots.
