  1. what's up with your website?

    love freeloveoneteaspoon and sweet-dream! I feel that you can have both if you want. if a series stands out on its own then you can separate it. as an artist with series you would have those galleries, and for clients looking to hire you maybe have more commercial galleries that are easier for them to ingest to get a quick idea of what youre about. or have just one portfolio that is a best of all of your photos for that reason instead of portraiture, landscape, etc. killing it tho!
  2. what's up with your website?

    don't see a point in writing the camera you used (a7r) and the portrait of your girlfriend stood out (in a bad way, because there were no other portraits). you should try to separate the initial emotional experience of shooting and edit your work down to the best of the best.
  3. April.

    Yeah this is definitely a look best saved for b-roll/cutaway/intro shots.
  4. The Large Format Thread

    friend had borrowed a sinar rail camera from school and they finally asked for it back after months LOL EDIT: clarification, he's been graduated for 2 years now and they've took out shooting 4x5 from their curriculum at least 4 years ago. first year when i was there was 4x5 black and white with some digital and 2nd year colour theory and business (simplifying obviously)
  5. Site Issues

    Is there any way to optimize the site to load faster? like emptying the cache up in this bitch? i feel like something is slowing it down because its not my internet. maybe its how feature rich the site is? or some old threads need to be archived or deleted? doing awesome work steve! glad to be back.
  6. Chevy Bash

    sickkkkkkkkk! love it i wouldn't have just tilted it to the right so it was level and maybe move a little to the left.
  7. Panasonic HMC150 for sale

    duuuuuude you’re tempting me so bad. do you need a canon 8-15mm?
  8. John Young Gems 2018 - Contest Edit

    what i meant by make it look its best is that its super exciting and scary to do tricks sometimes! so put that energy into the filming as much as the skater does, channel their energy and it'll also be exciting for the viewer. these angles were steady but just kind of, 'okay that happened'.
  9. John Young Gems 2018 - Contest Edit

    reminded me of a thrasher skatepark meet up video and what i mean by that is that it was good but predictable. i know this was a contest but it was very document-y. skateparks are where you experiment with filming, try new things, because you can fuck up and its not that big of a deal and you learn a lot. just force yourself out of the mold sometimes and film a trick to make it look its best. also wasn't into the font choice. okay song. hope this helps!
  10. LUCY - Montage

    lol im guessing its because sp has the word forums in it but thats funny. your shutter speeds are way too slow and the lens was often filthy (gotta check the camera, and front and back of the mark 1). songs were good, vibes of the homies were fun too, but theres a lot that could be finessed. just like general shakiness that can be helped through practice and planning out the shots with your skaters. also the slow shutter b-roll stuff worked sometimes but not every time. your light doesn't seem bright enough especially to be filming something like at 1:38 but it was probably off the cuff filming (this is where not using that clip comes in, video could be half the length and 2x better). skipped to the end of the video and saw more of the same kind of stuff i was talking about. another gripe is that the footage is really blue. hope you take some of this to heart but its just my opinion too and im not perfect. hope to see more in the future! on the right path
  11. 4:3 HD - Montage

    thought this might be relevant in terms of frame sizes. gh5s with the 0.64x speed booster would be mega
  12. Action packs 400ws vs compact flash

    also props for shooting skating/anything on 4x5 its rare these days. have a portfolio/website?
  13. Action packs 400ws vs compact flash

    1/220-1/10,100 sec and also the trigger uses highspeed sync. i know on my alien bee's their peak duration is when they are at full power (opposite of speedlites) so do some more research to see if thats the case for these.
  14. Action packs 400ws vs compact flash

    look into godox's options. they have two types of 600ws battery powered strobes. really competitive with profoto.
  15. wander - Non-Skate Related

    I think the reason the the fully flared ones work is because they ease/ramp in where as these are just BAM BAM BAM! haha.
  16. wander - Non-Skate Related

    the locations, shots, colour, pacing were all great. only gripe was that the script was a little too cliche/'written' for what seemed like was an amazing adventure and the speaker sounded like he was reading a paper/it was dishonest. the fully flared zoom was a little jarring but it was for effect obviously. some of those shots were super epic though! can't wait to see what else you do with the red. <3
  17. 4:3 HD - Montage

    fuck yeah! audio still seems thin, maybe knock it up a couple in camera. also, try using the -10db setting and boosting in camera, that way you can just flick to 0db for long lens. there's also a mic level limiter and wind cut setting that might change things up. love the trend of hd 4:3 tho! still haven't seen an hpx with an mk1 screw but hopefully that will be something that pops up. and if the long lens was all 120p then the bs boneless clip was probably a little choppy because your after effects comp or export didn't match. not a fan of the 60p uploads myself either, i've tried it with a vx and it doesn't look like the original footage it just looks weirdly smooth. nimrod and canadien just came back to ottawa but i still miss my boy sam! you should def film more with him he kills it.
  18. Kylin M Gimbal

    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/kylin-m-3-axis-stabilizer-for-lightweight-cameras?secret_perk_token=739d1026#/ This seems like it would be amazing for getting insanely smooth lines. never seen a gimbal that can be in that mode before.
  19. Canon GL2 Tips

    turn on MIC ATT in the menu
  20. what's up with your website?

    http://www.jordanpalmerwiens.com have trouble with categorizing my stuff but i feel like its all a work in progress.
  21. I see you tagged GL1 in the post. You should probably sell or throw it in a swamp quickly and search for a vx1000.
  22. "slumped" - Skatepark Montage

    awesome filming! i'm guessing you're inspired by aaron randi aka academyskatepark aka ronnie dings. skated that park a couple times on tour and loved it. montage is a proper example of how you can experiment with filming whilst at a park because there's no big deal if you mess up. there were some points where the skater wasn't totally in the frame or the framing didn't do anything for the trick but that will come with learning to see what the fisheye sees. i always make sure by checking my framing at the beginning and the ending of the clip to see where my arm should be pointing, and then eventually you won't need to do that at all. great stuff!
  23. just a tailslide

    I love it. Something I try to do in camera (while shooting) is to make sure my lines are straight. So if you keep the camera level and just raise or lower (not tilt) to keep the frame, sometimes youll have to stand on something or crouch down, you can make sure that nothing is crooked. This can be fixed in lightroom/photoshop but is always better to do it in camera. It's the reason why tiltshift lenses exist.
  24. First GH5 Footage - Montage

    LOL. classic edit. Only thing that sucks is that blue flare that I think is caused by the speedbooster. I've noticed it in Beagles footage with the speedbooster/other brand 8mm. Do you get the same width when zoomed out to 8mm on an adapter without glass? Could be that it's a cheap adapter too not sure what you're using. Also what mic and are you using manual audio? Sounds a bit tinny or something. Maybe a bass heavy mic like the new VideoMic Pro Plus would sound better. Also the quality of 180fps vs 120fps is apparently significant but I know you were just testing the camera. No complaints about the filming! All dope.
  25. 35mm pictures from a new guy

    what attracted you to these to make you take the photos and what makes you like the result. a simple question but can help you edit while shooting and afterwards. Here is an SP favourite.
