Ah the things that you get to be part of when you live in the Apple. Decided to take my 5D MKII out to anything this past Saturday and just shoot! I had been shooting videos with it more and was thinking of taking pics only. Like that worked out. Just before 5pm I wondered where to go. Five minutes later, I found this. One of three pics I kind of liked was that of the poet’s. But this video – I really like how it turned out.
Now to some nerdistry. Shot with Canon 5D Mark II. Used the always reliable $100 Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens. Audio is recorded with built-in mic. I spent most of last night trying to encode video to something that doesn’t look shitty online and Ed McNichol’s tutorial was the answer. When the opening title looked smooth I knew this setting was it.
Anyway…let the battle begin. [click here for iPhone]
p.s. please give the full-screen option a try & let me know what you think? thanks!
