Turning the Cameras
Yeap, turning the tables is a must! We recorded 21 segments in our four days of shooting. That’s a lot of camera time for this simple mountain boy. Now Adam here was great, I’d tell him a simple five word description of what I was going to teach, he’d say action and for the next forty minutes I taught. We’re in Valley of the Gods here the day after we were blown to Idaho and it was simply gorgeous. Just look at those clouds! So, I grabbed the 24f1.4 and turned the camera on Adam who was setting up the next shot with the steady cam.
And just when you think you’re getting the upper hand, you look at your assistants BTS shots later in the office and your realize that once again, the old bossman has been gotten, again! That Stephanie keeps amazingly busy with behind the video and behind the DSLR working the scene. But then, those are cheerished memories that without her photos would be only exposed forever on the thin emulsion of our minds. Not that that’s a bad thing, but recording memories is very much what photography is all about. And let me tell you, we made lots of memories and did lots of recording in Monument Valley!
