Spending the day in airports traveling to Alaska, a perfect time to add one more blog post before getting really busy up north. Had a chance to upload another short video shot on the D3s. Once again I relied on the Glidetrack for the moving shots in this video.
For sound we are using a Zoom H2 portable recorder, great sound from a very small device. The soundtrack on this piece was created in Garage Band. If you are a Mac user and haven’t worked with Garage Band, take a look at this program. It offers endless ways to create your own soundtrack, and perfectly sync the beat to your video. We edit everything using Final Cut Pro.
Tech: Nikon D3s, 24-70mm, 1/250 at F11, ISO 100. Two Elinchrom Quadras were used to light the climber. Right light shot through a 27″ Rotalux box, other head shot through at 30 degree grid from the left side. Skyports triggers the strobes. A little drama was added in CS4. Video shot using the D3s, 14-24mm and 24-70mm lenses, and Glidetrack used for moving shots.
