This was a video that took me and my friends two days to shoot. I’ve never taken more than 4 hours usually to shoot a video. that being said I was super anxious during the shoot because I knew there would be more to do later on. I get impatient when shooting and editing because I see the video in my mind and want it to come to life asap. I had to take my time with this project and plan all the shots the way I wanted them and schedule dancers to be at the second day. I always have help from amazing friends during these videos and I couldn’t do it without them. They played a big role in this project.
The set up for this video was pretty simple (which is usually the way I go). The lighting set up was three strong lowel lights in the background. on camera a fast fast shutter speed and low aperture and iso. That gave us the “shadow” look. The singer had a soft light on her for some shots but the video is mainly all back lighting which was lots of fun during the shoot and post during the edits. The shots of the singer were with the Canon 5D MK III and 50mm 1.4. All other shots were with the Canon 7D and a 50mm. I hope enjoy this project and if you have any questions let me know!
