Video & photo fusion is something I’ve started working with recently. The idea with fusion is to create a vibrant blend of selected photographs with short video sections, to give a 5 or 6 minute overview of the wedding day.
As with the previous fusion clips I created with Jessica, my assistant with an attitude, I shot with the Nikon D3 bodies and she shot the HD video sections with the Canon 5D mk II (B&H). It’s a lot of work putting this together, for I think that adding stills and video is more involved than just doing either. But I like the result, and hopefully clients and prospective clients will also be taken with it.
While we’re on the topic of photographing weddings and showing new work to clients – this would be a good time to mention (or even announce! with fanfare!) that the Latest Work blog has been revamped and active again. With 900px wide images, it will hopefully show a selection of my latest work off to best advantage.
The majority of my work as a photographer consists of wedding photography, photo sessions, corporate work and such. But there is the Tangents / planetneil related stuff which, for me is the fun stuff. The part of photography that, for me, is deeply rooted in the photo enthusiast aspect of photography – the thrill of taking photos and the thrill of playing with the toys. So my website serves a dual purpose – I have to attract new clients, but I also like to help other photographers through the Tangents site and forum, as well as my books and the occasional workshops and seminars.
This all has kept me very busy – to the point where I have neglected updating the Latest Work blog for a long, long time. Partly because I was forever stuck halfway in having the blog updated for larger images, but also because I started posting new work regularly on my photography page on Facebook.
But when I recently got this message on Twitter from another photographer …
“still doing weddings? I referred someone to you. But their feedback to me is that you haven’t shown a wedding in a long time”
… I realized I had better concentrate as well on pulling my entire site together. Time for some house-keeping and gardening and neatening things up a bit. So it’s not that I haven’t gone away, I’ve just been busy. And it’s not that I am back all of a sudden … I’m still here, working my arse off and loving it!
