"If you have a fast connection make sure and dial up the resolution to full 1080 HD!"
In the ever changing world of photography there is a new skill that many of us are starting to embrace. The capability of the new DSLRs to shoot in full HD video with limited depth of field has taken the world by storm. Some folks argue that this is just a fad but in my opinion video is here to stay. Combined with still photography, video creates a visual storytelling powerhouse.
To start wrapping my head around the world of video I decided to shoot a thirty second TV commercial for my good friend Wesley King, owner of Tahoe Trail Bar. I teamed up with fellow photographer Shea Evans and we began setting up the shoot. After coming up with a basic storyboard and shot list we instituted our good friend Corey Welsh to act as the "talent." We shot the entire commercial in one afternoon on the most scenic trail in Lake Tahoe, The Flume Trail. We then had Nate Ceko over at Outside TV edit the piece for us. The learning curve was steep but I learned a lot and am happy with the end result.
The commercial is now running on Outside TV. I can't wait to start the next project!
