Get Smart with Your Gear
get smart with your gear. Eso again? I talked about Interval ometer, right? That's that time trigger. Really helpful. Special if you're doing something solo that way you know, for that previous shot for that one, I think I had it take a picture every two seconds. This was with my canon 70 when I was shooting on that on I just said Okay, every two seconds take a frame. It was all locked down And then I go up and then play with some things that was like, What is that? Oh, didgeridoos on the poor cat lifted up right and trying to stay out of the frame. Eso interferometer. Really great. Now they have a lot of built in features with timers. Time lapse. Those are all tools that you can use for the same purpose. You say. Begin shooting now and it will shoot whatever exposure settings you have. Hopefully you have it under manual control on and at whatever interval you want. So used the gear as as much as possible to help make it easier, right? It's It's a nightmare when things don't match on m...
aking sure you have lots of shots over shooting is really helpful. So even though you think I don't need a time lapse, it's way too many shots. No. If you have specially animals or little people, you never have enough, right? Yeah. You never might not have the shot that's needed in general, just like with a tripod where it's just sort of locked down. Same with your manual controls. As you might know, you want to make sure that you're on all manual control. You've already pre set your, uh uh, You're focused if you can, and you've set your exposures. So that way you know exactly what the shutter speed is. Everything is gonna have the same look and feel, right. No auto white balance is something changes. You don't want it toe constantly change with that. So lock everything down. Uh, let's see. But yeah, really need advances in gear again. I mentioned the phone, right. If you can have it, throw your phone, take a look at your cameras manual and see if you can have it. Send that image live to your phone where you can control it, because then you can actually go to that person. Say, see, look, we need to line up right here on it will line up to that spot. So that's that's always great to use your gear. So here we go. All right, so that's our typical shoot, which is him and I. So it's also really important about We'll go for it having fun, right? So it's not just enough to have your really concept if you're not having fun with it. And especially your if you're shooting someone smaller animal. If they're not having fun with it, it will show I've had those were like, No, we're gonna do this And it shows might sound like on, you know, my wife's not have, you know, so you to make sure that it's at the right time for everything needs to work with everybody involved. You work with adults, they just have to get over and fake it, right? But if you're working with people that they can't control their motions, yeah, make sure that it's always fun. I did a shoot with craftsy last year. I'm playing with you know, the model and imagining things right. It makes it so much more. If they could be in your sort of mind, space and vision, it just it makes it right, cause he's seen enough levitation. He knew exactly. Oh, yeah. I'm gonna be up here and you're gonna take you out like, yeah, um, so the idea can be fun, so make it engaging on it shows.
