About 2 months ago, I had the opportunity to work on four very different commercials, within about a 1-month span. Two fashion spots, one spot for Sesame Street and finally a sneaker commercial with a cross marketing twist. I found these four commercials very interesting as they were each so different. Different styles, directors, locations and circumstances. It was really fun to shoot with so much variety. Lets take a look at the lighting setups for each. We'll start with the first fashion spot
Given two weeks, everybody can edit a piece on FCPX. That's a completely different matter when you've only got a couple of hours before you need to deliver or broadcast your edit. Ten great FCPX tips from Peter Wiggins to help everyone.
Smaller, lighter, and more features. I love technology! The new Nikon D750 shines.
I'll start off with saying that I already ordered mine. I admit, I couldn't resist this amazing new camera at an amazing price. I have a Nikon D800 and love it, but there are a few little things I wish it could do to make it more video friendly. The Nikon D750 seems to have addressed all the needs of the serious videographer who also appreciates an exceptional still camera.
Besides the things that I love about the previous D800, including amazing image quality and clean high ISO performance, here are the standout features of the new D750 for me:
* Spot white balance - You can select an object already in your scene to create a custom white balance from. * Highlight-weighted metering - You can have the camera perfect your exposure based on highlights in the scene, ensuring important detail is not lost. * Tilt screen - finally! Shoot high! Shoot low! * HD video at 60 - beautiful slow motion * Better viewfinder with ability to adjust color to match other monitors! Finally! * Auto ISO while video recording - keep your shutter and aperture constant and let auto ISO adjust the exposure as you move from light to dark to light. Awesome. * Built-in WiFi and control app - less external gadgets to connect and a new range of options for remote shooting and viewing * L, M, S still image capture resolutions - You don't have to use all of that big, beautiful 24.3 MP sensor if you don't need it. Save smaller files and speed up your post-processing * 9 shot auto-bracketing for easily creating a series of images for HDR post-processing. and also includes in-camera HDR for less post-processing.

Do you see yourself owning one? What will you photograph with it? I'm definitely more inspired to work on new video projects and I think it will be my all-in-one travel camera as well. Technology truly enhances our lives when it inspires us to do more of what we love, be more creative, and share our vision with the world. Now, what about that iPhone 6...
