In one of my recent weddings I photographed, I managed to squeeze in a few moments to capture some video footage, stuck it together using Final Cut Pro in under 30 minutes and added a soundtrack by my very good friend Gary Mullins who happens to be an amazing guitarist.
The NIkon D90 isn’t the best video SLR in the market, but because you can use some impressive glass with it (in this case a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8) then it beats any compact HD camcorder in my opinion. I’m hoping to get my hands on a Canon 5D mk2 soon so I can continue with my experiments.
Have a look, let me know what you think.
Talk about going into 2010 with a bang, I started this year off in the most random of situations. Let’s just say someone lost the keys to his hired car, but against the odds he still finds them and we still make it in time for dinner!!
If you ever make it down to the South West coast of Wales to a small town called Tenby, then watch out for the locals, they know how to party!
I simply think her pose is perfect. A woman’s neck is often missed by the photographer but it is something I try hard to capture. Along with her obvious beautiful legs the dress is simple, the lighting is high and slightly behind her. It’s great!
I stumbled upon this article about a bride Katie Kirkpatrick (21) who endured cancer to get married to Nick Godwin. This made me think about mortality and the triumph over the inevitable. Even though Katie knew her time in this life was short she still would have to spend alot of time and energy preparing for a wedding. What I find even more sad is that it takes impending death to remind us what is important in this world before we meet our maker.
We all live in fear, we all struggle to fit in and yet we try so hard to be individuals. This dichotomy would seem bizarre to an Alien visitor. It is only our finite line that has the power to overcome all that. It puts us in our place.
Take a look at your life, are you the best that you can be? I live everyday with my metaphorical cancer, I struggle to be the best of me but I live in the knowledge I am doing something about it.
