I recently had the opportunity to fly out to Indiana to shoot NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart for an Armor All advertising campaign. He was a pretty cool cat. And we were rockin’ some crazy cool music the entire shoot. It was freezing (shot mid December) but everything ran pretty smooth. Note to Self: Driving on ice is not fun for future reference.
I picked up the new Canon 5d Mark II as a back up to my Mark III but mainly for the HD option. As a photographer who is rather intrigued by motion, this is an amazing new feature. And the footage that this camera takes is freakin’ beautiful.
I had just received it the day before flying out so we had yet to figure out the HD controls. But with the video guys from NASCAR there I just handed it to them and said shoot YO!
So here’s my first official (be it very short) behind the scenes video. I hope that this is something we will be doing more often now that we have this camera. Peace.
