Video (and audio) Practice

The lack of wedding activity has given me a great opportunity to hone my video shooting and editing skills. The quality of the video that can be shot with the latest mirrorless cameras is truly amazing, especially when combining them with top quality professional lenses. Lenses like the Canon EF 85mm f1.2L and Tamron SP 35mm f1.4 can capture beautiful colours with lovely blurry backgrounds. Shooting video alongside stills (hybrid shooting) is a challenge but with the range of cameras available now, at least it is possible.

I have recently invested in radio microphones which are especially useful for the wedding speeches etc. Video editing is a slow and painstaking process with a huge range of options. Whether its 1080P HD or 4K (mostly unnecessary), black and white or slow motion the results are incredible…

Practice makes perfect
