So you started doing weddings and business is taking off. Your old clients have referred you to all their friends and money is starting to flow in. Now you’ve decided to step away from your kit lenses and old tripod in exchange for supports and lenses that will take your game to the next level.
What's up everyone. I am a hobbyist continuing to learn every chance I get which is why I love these types of forums. Currently I am working on my event skills. A few people have asked me to video their weddings. As always I like to do my homework. Between the weddings I have been to and the ones I have seen on you tube, I know a couple of things.
1 - I have to work on shooting in low light, because I hate those on cam lights that blind everyone facing the camera.
I will be shooting a wedding coming up. I have the following gear: Sony V1U and Canon 60D. Along with Rode video mic pro and wireless G3 kit. For editing I use a imac and final cut or adobe.
Now I have been told by some people to shoot everything in 24p. My cameras do that and I would like that for the getting ready footage, reception and other fun parts. However, I'm not sure if I should stick to one frame rate or not?
The ceremony and speeches were my main concern which frame rate to use?
A wedding videographer is always conscious that a couple's wedding is one of the most important days in their lives, so he knows that they will choose a form and venue with a special meaning for them. Some couples hold them in unusual locations -- not just in parks or gardens, but even stores like T.J Maxx or Whole Foods Market.
I've posted quite a few bits of info concerning Canon DSLR's that dealt primarily with the technical aspects of cameras like the 5DmkII, 7D and 1DmkIV such as exposure ratings, and CMOS issues. Even found you guys some hardcore videos comparing DSLR's head-to-head against film cameras!
