    Okay the videos I initially made had my girlfriend in them and I was showing my "adjustment" to the manual focus which seems pretty easy to get used to. Unfortunately she didn't want those ones readily available to the public b/c she's saying some shit about Chinese people and she currently represents the Chinese Chamber of Commerce hahaha

    Sooooo, I made this short vid of my dog instead to show you:

    I'm using Sony Vegas Pro right now for editing, I heard it was pretty good... do you think I should switch over to Premier Pro? I can see how learning this software is a major learning curve but it's worth it. Not learning this would be putting my camera to waste (despite the amazing images it also takes)

    I've got a trip to Kauai coming up and I want to make a cool video montage of the experience... hoping to learn as much as I can before then. Leaving for that on Sep 4

    Once my other lenses show up this weekend I'm gonna go out and use the tripod to get some nice images/video. Right now, all I have is the 50 1.4 so it's a little tight in my apartment

    awesome dude! as far as switching, id say if vegas is working for you and you have it, keep with it. Different software has different features, and thats cool and all, but ultimately, theyre all doing the same thing: allowing you to edit your footage in a non linear way. as long as you can make cuts and reposition clips, you are doing it right.

    KEEP SHOOTING. try to shoot and cut something everyday. even if its something short or stupid. start thinking about how you can tell a story by the clips you show or dont show. even if its about hurley being lazy. think about how it makes you feel when you cut from one image to another. try similar images. try images that jive completely. just try things. think about moments in the song that fit your subject perfectly, and cut to a shot at that exact moment. start thinking about playing your shots/cuts against the music, or with the music. watch tv/movies/commercials more closely and see how the use every available avenue to tell a story..shot composition, color, lighting, timing, sound, editing, all these things influence your vids independently and when well thought out, come together to form like voltron and make your videos more than just moving slideshows. keep it up dude

    Yeah I have definitely already been paying way more attention to just TV, definitely going to be more aware of films now... can't help it!

    I'm wondering if I shouldn't shoot at such a low aperture though... 1.4 makes it kind of rough to focus at times, what do you usually keep your aperture at?

    I can't wait to get my 24 1.4!!! I have a few "shots" in mind already and want to get out there, definitely doing a little Oahu montage as well. I wish I could take my camera to work with me haha

    Nice dude! I havn't seen your 365 yet. Been a while since you posted something huh? Whole bunch of awesome pics. I suppose I should scroll back and check out any other 365s.
