a new capture

June 4, 2017

I frequently find that I like to stretch myself when it comes to my photography…so I am pretty regularly taking workshops and signing up for classes to learn and grow.  It is truly amazing how much there is to learn and that I can always find something new to explore.  This new venture, however, takes a bit of a twist because its switching my dial in the video direction of my dslr.

I signed up for a workshop recently and the challenge was to shoot pictures and video in one session (eek!) …so I asked my new friend Emily to help me out and she and her family agreed!  Emily is also a wonderful photographer (along with her husband) and her two cute boys made perfect subjects.

Below is the video that I created…it was so challenging!  Editing and shooting video is a whole new world to me…but I am thankful I have my husband Chris to bounce ideas off of and to ask for advice in how to do things in this whole new software since he has been doing video for so long now.  Before this, the only video I had taken was at a wedding that I assisted him on but all I had to do was press stop and start while the camera was on a tripod ;0)
