    Hi Sury!All good stuff! My favorite croc-shot is the one with the angle looking down where the area outlining its head is plain dark water. To me, the plainness of the water not only emphasizes the texture of the croc’s skin but also the importance of the subject. Love it! I think that you hit […]

Alpha 55 video of a rare occasion

On Saturday, the Household Cavalry chose to provide a guard of honour for a wedding couple lucky enough to have planned their wedding for the day the mounted regiment was in town. I photographed the event from the unique viewpoint of an Alpha 55 fitted with a Sigma 8-16mm superwide zoom, mounted on a 3.5m high Manfrotto stand with a 7″ Lilliput HDMI monitor connected on a long HDMI cable to compose and follow the action. The sound is just what the camera recorded, no external microphone was used.

    Wow. Great video. I especially like the sound of the hooves on the cobbles. Your shooting overhead rig works really well in these sort of crowds. (Never seen the Household Cavalry with lances before?)
