Flashing Neurons!

The video journey continues

A couple of years ago, I started getting interested in video. I’ve always been interested in cinematography and have always written “cinematic” music (One of my dreams remains to score a film). I started off by getting myself a cinema camera (A Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K), but despite my best intentions that never went anywhere and I ended up selling it. And then last year, Canon released the EOS R5. There were two reasons I jumped on it; it was the long awaited replacement for my 7D mark I as my primary photography camera and it also did high quality video. It had become very clear to me that I am a hybrid shooter, so a separate cinema camera made little sense and the R5 sounded perfect.

That has proven to be correct. I’ve recorded a lot of clips in the past few months. Right now I am limited by two things, an inability to plan a film and my limitations as an editor. While I am getting better at both it restricts the kind of videos I can make. Today, most of my videos are short videos of wildlife, with some of my son. But I am happy with the progress I am making. This short clip of a bald eagle is one of my better edits

I’ve also played around with color grading and am getting quite a bit better at it as well as seen in this short clip of my son

Now, I need to make more complex videos, with stories, different pacing (everything I’ve done too date is shot at 4K/60 or 4K/120), more complex music (and hopefully some of my own composition).
