Well, the title says it all! Here is a time-lapse I made of me editing one of the headshots from yesterdays shoot. In this video I am using Lightroom briefly, followed by the remainder of the editing in Photoshop.
The total time on this edit was about one hour and fifteen minutes. This level of editing is included in all of my headshot sessions. Please someone let me know if you are interested in seeing more of this type of stuff, Ive been considering doing voiceover, explaining which tools I am using and how I get the best results.
Today I headed out to DC for a client that needed a couple of headshots taken for employees. The client has a shared space inside the WeWork Wonderbread Factory location, which is one of the coolest shared spaces I have seen, check them out by clicking, here.
The location had tons of random spots to set up for photos, and I ended up using a small meeting room. I went with my standard headshot setup, which consists of a roll of savage backdrop paper on a backdrop stand, and two White Lightening 3200 Strobes.
I plan on making a little editing tutorial video with one of the photos from today, so stay tuned!
It has been a few months since this shoot for my good friends Lexi & Eric in Denver, but the photos are too gorgeous not to share. Lexi and Eric decided against a traditional wedding and instead chose to go a much more fun route! Check out some of the photos below to see for yourself!
One of my favorite places to shoot in the world just happens to be right where I live, Loudoun County Virginia! I take every opportunity I can to photograph or film anything here, from real estate, automobiles, portraits and even the occasional wedding! Here are a few of my favorites from the years for your enjoyment!
This photo of my dear friends was taken at Blumont Vineyard in Blumont, VA, the highest point in Loudoun County I might add! The day before my sweet Penelope was born too!
This is a marketing video I did for my favorite client ever, TYG Homes! It is located in the village of Paeonian Springs just outside of Leesburg, Virginia. This tiny village is especially cool because it served as a vacation spot for city folk, starting way back in the 1890’s!
I am just about done with the Quick Cut updates that I mentioned in my previous post, which you can see here. Here is where I am with it now.
I am putting together some training videos and working in Final Cut makes it easy to work with projects containing multiple camera angles. Thanks guys!
The other day while editing photos I shot for GTM Architects I decided to make a quick video of my edit process. Many times for architectural photographs the client requests that I remove certain items, such as signs, reflections, people wandering by etc. Here is the video, followed by the raw untouched photo, followed by the final edit. Thanks so much, and please comment with any questions!
Here it is, in all of its glory! I put the finishing touches on the quick cut fifteen second spot for Eastern Motors.
As I mentioned in my previous post I have been tasked with creating a fifteen second version of a thirty second spot I made several years back. Between the original production and now my computer unfortunately crashed, and although I have all of my files backed up I did not have my final cut project files backed up. This means I had to start from scratch in Final Cut, which is kind of a pain but also allows me to cut it the way I would’ve if I knew what I was doing the first time around.
Here is a rough draft, please comment and let me know what you think!
Another update for my friends at Easterns, this time I have been tasked with changing out some subtitles, and creating a fifteen second version from the original thirty second spot.
I originally made this commercial about four years ago, when I was still very new to Final Cut, however it is still one of my favorites. Here is that original version:
