When you ask Photographers why they prefer Canon or a Nikon body, most will say that both cameras produce superb image quality, but they stuck with one or the other simply because they already had the lenses for it and didn’t want to reinvest in all the expensive glass to fit the new camera. If you ask me why I use 5D Mark II – its even simpler: IT TAKES VIDEO!!!
-”But you are a Photographer, not a Videographer, right?!”
-”Wright and wrong.”
I am an Artist, and as an Artist you really don’t want to be constrained by anything that can stifle your creative process. So forget the niche and do what you love! On the practical side, If you talk to the professional Fashion Photographers and Modeling agencies what you’ll find is that not only is it a well accepted medium in the industry but a very sought after skill. So you either embrace it or become pretty much obsolete in the world of online digital media. Ok, enough of the shop talk, here’s a short test video we recently produced :
What a blast! The clothes and Models were just amazing. We picked up most things from the Heart Boutique conveniently located on 19th and Capitol in Downtown Sacramento. Alyssa totally rocked the denim shorts and I don’t think anyone can look better in hats than Vanessa did during our shoot. We were lucky to have had a beautiful summer day after the heavy rain during a week. Jasmine Cardinas did a gorgeous job on make-up and we were happy to stay dry and not have it all washed off .
So there it is – out very first video! Tell us what you think and leave a comment. Oh, and here’s a link to the Constant Project and the Stills.
