Here is a great intro video that was done for the Charlotte Bobcats. It uses mostly still images and then some video is added to add effect. This was another great project that was created with the Charlotte Bobcats, Limerick studios, and Kent Smith Photography. The still images have motion added to them to create the effect of movement. Thanks to all who worked on this project. Now, we need the boys to win the Championship. Go Bobcats.

When the USA Swimming team approached me about shooting Cullen Jones I was very excited. I knew of his accomplishments as an Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder and had also heard stories about how he helps kids learn to swim here in Charlotte and across the country. He was someone I was really looking forward to working with.
My expectations were just as I had thought, working with Cullen was a pure pleasure. I am sure Nike is very proud to have him on contract. He is a rare talent with an infectiously nice personality, often hard to find in a person once fame enters into the picture. I must also say he was a delight to see in the pool. He swims with such little effort, and the passion in his eyes is unmistakable. During the shoot he was so understanding and willing to do everything we asked of him, always with a huge smile on his face.The wonderful thing was we were never rushed to move too quickly, which is always a good thing when working with lights and a camera around water. We started out with shots around the pool, then we moved to the studio to create some very edgy images of him. Thanks Cullen and the USA Swim Team for a great day! I admire your talent and all you do for the kids around the world. You give the USA a great name!

Canon’s EOS E1 video plug-in for Apple’s Final Cut Pro was released today. This new plug-in allows simple and easy transfer of video content from Canon’s EOS DSLR cameras directly into Final Cut Pro. The EOS E1 video plug-in takes advantage of Final Cut Pro’s powerful Log and Transfer feature, which allows users to select and mark the video directly while it is still on the camera, add custom metadata and ingest the clips in the background so the editing can begin immediately.
The EOS E1 video plug-in is a free download. The plug-in is compatible with Final Cut Pro 6 or higher and currently supports Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS 1D Mark IV cameras.

Have you ever wondered how much is real on tv or the big screen? Well, I think this little video will show you how much things change on the editing room. To save the cost of adding items, the green screen or blue screen have changed how things are manipulated on the computer.

It’s not everyday when you get the chance to see the Black Eyed Peas play. I have seen a lot of groups and this one brings something for both kids and adults. Recently I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to cover their show from the pit. I must say that today, two days after the concert, is first day that my heart has stopped jumping from the sound of the bass vibrating with pure electricity.
Covering a show like that is always a joy because you get to see great performers and extremely talented entertainers. Like most shows of this caliber, the lighting is amazing. I decided to take things to the next level and took the opportunity to put the Canon EOS-ID Mark IV up against the Canon EOS-IDs Mark III?
I will say that the low light situations that were captured with the EOS-ID Mark IV were pretty amazing; the EOS-IDs Mark III had some better details in the black areas. The only other issue I noticed was the full frame factor. Having the EOS-ID Mark IV, which has a 1.3 conversion, gave me a longer lens. That can help and hurt. Overall, I would have to say that both cameras were amazing. It all comes down to your eye and what you want to record on the “New Film- Digital”.
