Bye Bye, Canon EOS-M

I made a trip to San Francisco in the beginning of March for a vacation. Even during the planning stage for the trip I was beginning to dread taking my heavy 60D with me. I did end up taking it, without the grip and with only the 28-135mm kit lens. And while I appreciated the speed and incredibly sharper and more dynamic images than that of my iPhone 5, I hated the weight of it. By the end of the trip I was already researching mirror-less camera options to sub in for my 60D for my next excursion. Continue reading “Bye Bye, Canon EOS-M”

Spinning back up…

Here’s a few shots from our latest Georgia Prosthetics shoot. You can see Ed Overstreet on the 60D and Matthew Owen on the D800 (nice camera, but we definitely had to crank the ISO to match the 60D).

It was a good shoot. This particular interviewee is building a truck for the owner of Georgia Prosthetics; A 1967 Chevrolet C10 Pickup. We had some excellent responses to our questions that will really help shape the image of Georgia Prosthetics that we want to convey. We’re going to be making another trip back to shoot broll of the truck when it is completed.

 

Canon Visit

We had a visitor today. Canon! Robert, my boss, just happens to be friends with Mark Karwisch, the Southeastern Broadcast Account Manager at Canon U.S.A. He made the trip down to our office and brought with him a few toys for us to look over. Let’s see here… the XA10, XF105, XF305, 5D Mark III, and the C300. The C300 is the one we’ve been waiting for and I hadn’t had a chance to go hands-on with one yet.

We’ve been looking for something that is a little easier on the workflow than the current HDSLR’s we’ve been shooting with. Ever since this camera was announced, it’s been gaining more and more of my interest, especially with all the positive reviews that have come down the pipe. I’m tired of syncing audio, i’m tired of the tiny LCD screen, and i’m tired of the limited record time. I’m not going to go into details as to the pro’s and con’s of this camera, all I can say is that this exactly what I need to solve the issues that I’m tired of dealing with. Time will tell if we end up getting one or justifying the cost of ownership vs just renting. But I definitely appreciate Mark taking the time to come out and show us the latest goodies that Canon is offering.

It’s almost that time of year again

Time for the creation of the Millenia 3 company holiday card. It the spirit of the project I thought I’d recap on what we (Andrew Walker and I) put together last year. I think this was our best card yet. You can see that we started out with one idea refined it a bit and and it slowly shifted into the finished product. All the while, we were trying to stick to our theme. You’re done with your work, we’re done with ours, go home and enjoy the holidays! I think it worked out well. Now to begin planning for this years card. Continue reading “It’s almost that time of year again”

Millenia 3 Has Moved

New building! Millenia 3 is officially in Kennesaw, GA now.

This building is a huge step for myself as well as our company. It’s allowed me to take on the lead role in the design and implementation of all the systems from the ground up for the first time. Three fully functional and redundant HD editing suites which control, via KVM, the towers in our centralized machine room. We have room to expand and the possibilities for growth are endless.

Andrew Walker, fellow photog, and I took on the task of creating a nice building shot for our move announcement and promotional materials.

It was shot on a Canon 7D with a 10-22mm. We did about 6 different exposures and manually composited in Photoshop CS6.

Update: I found some pics of the photo shoot…
