Sure, lots of people shoot with multiple Cameras and match the footage in the edit, but with no graphics card, I can’t do that while processing 4K footage; I wouldn’t be able to see what the footage looks like before rendering. As a work around I use in-Camera settings to make 2 very different Cameras produce images that look similar and usually get away with that. Of course trying to record in a dark Café with LED lights complicates things further, but hey, that’s the challenge that keeps it interesting. Here is another example featuring Allen Hinds with Rat Scat. Hope You like it.
Recently I was asked if I was in hiding. My answer was that instead of following Politics, I was following people with real talent.
I will use this space to showcase a bit of what I’ve been doing. It all started with a Camera that had an incredible lens attached to it; one that could follow a fast moving object both near and far. So for fun I went to a few Tractor Pulls and Motocross events until I could reliably capture usable footage without getting access normally granted to professional Camera Crews. That meant I had to shoot video from whatever was available to me which ranged from a standing on a Barrel to the top of the Stands and everything in between.
When the season ended I got bored and decided to try and record live Bands. Gaining entrance to live performances costs money, but also requires a new set of skills, which I’ll get into in a future post.
