Cicada Emerging: practice shooting filmic pictures PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ed Eusebio   
Cicado Emerging

I snapped this photo of a cicada emerging from it's shell. It was attached, about waist high, to the bricks on the side of my house, illuminated by our car headlights. I also have video of the moment, which I edited together with a Dusty Springfield song (that oddly fit the footage well). Watch "The Love of Cicada Love" here.

The purpose of my recent photography is to learn to shoot more "filmic" pictures. I'm applying the "rule of 3" as much as I can, to my pictures (horizontally, vertically, and depth). And because my DSLD allows it, using defocus when I can.

Taken using my Sony Nex-5 DSLD, with the 2.8F-16mm pancake lens (love that camera!).

 
How NOT to use Final Cut "Render" PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ed Eusebio   

"The Quiz" Shoot by Ed Eusebio on Vimeo.

Stuff I learned from editing this behind the scenes footage:

  1. Final Cut "Render" makes clean digital footage look crappy.
  2. Use footage in a format that is recognizable to Final Cut, and doesn't require rendering.
  3. Simple cuts to's and cross fades are better.
  4. Louder sound is generally better.
  5. Allow the footage to tell it's own story.
  6. Good clean footage is essential for good editing.
  7. Vimeo is better than YouTube, when it comes to preserving the quality of your HD footage.
