I sure love shooting for fun and challenging myself. It makes me feel alive and happy, but it feels like I’m 10x more motivated to do portraits for friends. I think my friends enjoy it as well and I’m always happy to give them something memorable. I feel it is a great way to give. #d850 and #a7riii are both such wonderful cameras, I’m super impressed and will have an epic shootout soon (all tests are finished)! Thank you all for your patience! #epicshootout #maui #hawaii #luckywelivehawaii
Great portrait shoot last night for my upcoming Epic Shootout with @chasing_christa - she’s a first time model and has only been cross fitting for less than two months! She works so hard & has made huge progress! I have a feeling we will be shooting again. Great job Christa!!Camera was #Sony #A7riii with the 70-200 G Master
Need hard shadows for video in low light conditions? Two of the most affordable options right here - Lowel’s Pro Light & Omni Light, about $110 & $150 respectively. They are hot lights, ~3300k but for 200W & 500w - that price is hard to beat. I prefer LED panels for softer shadows, but every film maker should have a very hard & bright light in their lighting tool kit. You can always go from small to large light source using a bounce, much harder the other way around. The Pro light is smaller, Omni brighter and has a handle. There is a ton of accessories for both. #lowel #lighting #videolights
PS- Ill put the links for them in "Michael's Bag" tab above under video light section.
In today’s episode, I wanted to address a few rules I use when deciding if I should debate with others (it very rarely happens) on certain topics and the thresholds that are required for me to want to invest my time into it. I’m also including 2 examples of debate thresholds that are very controversial, GMO’s and Global Warming.
There are people who are very passionate about these in Social Media and the reason I use these two examples is to demonstrate how willing some are to debate about things they do not fully understand. (Hint: Do not debate with anyone who intentionally misunderstands you, doesn’t know the basics or is unwilling to learn the basics).
I’ll also share with you two incredible scientific facts that reset the stage of debate when it comes to GMO’s and Global Warming. Hold on to your seats!
In this video, I tackle the optical focusing systems of the spectacular Nikon D850. In another lesson on the crash course, I will show you how to focus in live view for both stills and video, as well as give you some additional pro tips, including peaking focus.
