Along with the new website design, I put up some new images and video I shot in Mt Shasta, CA. It was shot a few months ago, but it took awhile to get everything edited and uploaded. It was a winter lifestyle stock shoot and the thing I’m most excited about is using the new Canon 5D Mark II for stills and video. By itself, the camera isn’t the most ergonomic for video (mostly due to the manual focus), but the image quality is incredibly good. Add to that use of any Canon lenses, and the possibilities are unprecedented in that price range. I’ve gotten to try it with a Red Rock Micro rig with follow focus and it worked well. Lots of new companies are making rigs now, so the prices are coming down, too.
Overall the shoot was a great success and I think the ability to use the same camera for both mediums really gives a seamless look when stills and video are mixed, as I did in the Shasta video on my website. Big thanks to Dogsled Express. Check it out: Shasta Winter Project
