A busy few days but was lovely on Friday to be able to get a few local photos and video the Devizes Lantern parade with of course Santa switching on the lights. I try to attend every year and its always a great atmosphere and seems to get bigger and bigger each year. Never quite sure what works best photos or video I guess my personal preference is video as its a it more giving in low light as with a photo you have to use flash and that can burn out the white of the lanterns or if you up the ISO shows a bit of grain.
I use a canon eos 7d which is good in that I can switch modes so able to get a few photos and some hi def video. Two different disciplines but with some care and thought you can do both. I do what I can for local community projects for free and I will come out and cover your event for a donation to my charity or of course you can pay our set fee to have your event covered by photography and video.. chuck is of course and optional extra. Video is becoming more important on any website as its a medium people will watch and now with better bandwidth enjoy noty difficult to set up your own video channel and programmes give me a shout and I will explain *smile*
chuckI do enjoy making video's for people, companies, charities and no better time or way to promote yourself on the web. Your own TV advert recorded and edit from only £75 from me and cf10ten or a morning teaching you how easy it is to do.
A lot of video editing today and now have a video studio to do recordings with a green screen. Basically you film in front of a screen and replace anything green with video or photos just like on the news.
Did a very quick video yesterday with a few chuck the duck video clips which basically is a person catching and throwing chuck on camera. All stitched together to make a fun video. As its the month of parties I thought why not make a special December episode of chuck leduck so if around give me a shout or invite me to your party. Its going to be a classic. As you will see in the video met Michael a very talented juggler to start things going.
Talking of video daughter Sal in Brisbane told me of this great mobile app called tango where you can record and sare video clips with familiy no matter where they are in the world. Sal may regret this! *smile* http://www.tango.me/
