News Post – Video Offerings

Here at Lifestylefoto, I have been looking into other services I can offer.

Video Recording & Film making is in many ways similar to taking Digital Still Photographs, especially when both formats can be captured by the same camera. Photo & Video have a different workflow in terms of editing. I use Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom / Photo Mechanic for Still Images & Apple’s Final Cut Pro for Video Editing. What I do find so exciting about Video is the ability to use different sound sources as well. It can add so much to a presentation. The sound elements might be recorded either on camera via a boom microphone (Rode Videomic Pro Plus) or via a Small handheld digital sound recorder, I tend to use the Zoom H5 or DR-10 Clip-on Lav Mic.
Bad sound recording can negatively impact Epic Video content.

As alternative perspectives are extremely handy, I am also able to record content via a Drone. This gives that Cinematic Look to any event from the unique way these devices fly. Please see below for some content recently recorded.

Here is one of my Nikon Z6ii Cameras with the attached Rode Videomic Pro Plus & Moza Air ii Gimbal connected to a Ninja V external monitor-recorder fitted with a 1TB SSD Drive (capable of recording via HDMI 12 Bit ProRes RAW)

Here is Drone sample footage recorded earlier in the Year. As you can see, it really gives a unique viewpoint.

This is a mix of locations from the Northwest of England, Starting in Lancaster at the Ashton Memorial, to Lytham Pier, Manchester’s Skyline & ending with Hoghton Tower, Nr Blackburn. The unique perspective really helps boost the watchability value.
Here is another example demonstrating the Power of Drone Recording at Newcastle, County Down – Slieve Donard Hotel. I took various sound recordings of the Sea & the Sea Gulls, mixed with the right music it certainly adds atmosphere to the entire clip.

Best Wishes,
