Being that I do a lot of work with bands shooting live photography, and ever since I picked up Canon’s 5D MkII DSLR, I’ve been trying to think through how I can blend still photography with these new fangled HD video capabilities I’m carrying around. The goal being to still shoot amazing live photos but simultaneously produce a video product that’s would be worth something to the musician.
Last night, I finally was able to put all of my year of tinkering and problem solving to the test when Offering played a small show at Café Caturra. Fortunately I was given the flexibility to try something a little new, so away i went.
If I have any personal critiques it would be that on occasion the camera shakes a little more than i’d like, and had I talked with the sound guy I could have potentially plugged directly into the sound board to record even better quality audio. From here on out, those issues will be resolved.
That said, since I now have the technique down, I’ll be offering this service as a package option. So if you’re a band looking for stunning live photography and could also use a particularly awesome live music video shot in full 1080p HD quality, this is exactly what you’re looking for. Contact us for pricing and we’ll get the ball rolling. Oh, and below are a few still shots from the show too. Enjoy!
