  1. Another video. Getting better with the color grading correction. I think at least, tried really hard not to use many cross fade. This was a difficult wedding since there wasn't a lot to shoot. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=V0tJdn2YJN0 I've watched a ton of other people's work and tried to emulate some of my favorites. I think this person is amazing: What cuts are the ones early on in the video? Flash cuts? I love them whatever they are. Thanks again group much love with your help/advice
  2. Ok so since last time I've shot another wedding it was difficult with the lack of light in the evening but I've tried to take into account all your feedback and advice (which I'm very grateful for). So here it is: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=l6Ah94LOlOY Thoughts?
  3. Seriously all thank you so much for all your comments and advice. Seems like I've got a lot to work on. I'll add a few more since I've done four more weddings recently that I'm currently working on from my hospital bed. The clients seem to be very happy currently but I know I can do better. I'm in hospital so I'd like to take the time to reply to each of you and thank individual if that's ok and also when I've reflected a little more. Thanks once again so so much it means a lot to me. If any other have any more comments feel free to add to this topic. Ryan
  4. Hi all, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind looking at some of my work and giving me some constructive criticism. I've graduated from film on the gh2 to currently the gh4 and I've started my own local film business. Nothing massive just a hobby I enjoy so why not get paid to do it. Please take a look and let me know what you think. I'm always willing to try new things and learn from past mistakes. Thanks for your time http://m.youtube.com/channel/UCcn5e_l0y_ryAUJ5VXSXK3A
  5. Thank you so much for your help. That'll make a big difference to my videos. Is there a why to limit the shutter speed so it won't go below a certain range etc
  6. Yes the banding lights. I'm guessing here, but does that mean it's due to me not having the shutter speed double the FPS? Thank you for your quick response.
  7. Hello all, I was hoping someone would be able to tell me want is going on in the GH4 test I did with the 35-100 f2.8 lens its been happening quite a lot lately and I don't know what it is or why its happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance the clip can be view here: http://youtu.be/O4pTX6Twf1c Thank you all Ryan
  8. Got a lovely nearly new GH2 body only from ebay it arrived today for £320 (not a cheap Hong Kong not off)    Really happy with my choice, now just need to get some good glass for video wedding in doors and outdoors, I'm looking at Panasonic lenses at the moment:   1. LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. or the LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S.   (bearing in mind that the second opition is twice the price)   2. Panasonic Lumix G 20mm/F1.7 Pancake Lens or Panasonic H-H014E Lumix G Pancake Lens (14 mm, F2.5 Wide-Angle)   Then thinking of getting some old canon FD lenses, since they are cheap and well basically awesome.   What do you think? enough for wedding videography? and body own a GH2 and shoot video that have some recommendations?   Working on my new website at the moment should be up and running soon.
  9. Thanks you all for your help and advice, I've decided to go for the GH2 and hack it. With the spare money for I'm going to get some high quality glass to start with then look to upgrade to the GH3 and use the GH2 as a backup cam.    Thanks again guys
  10. Wow what a community, seriously thank you to all those so far with their advice and comments. I really appreciate it. After more research I'm looking at the:   Sony A77 Panasonic GH2/ GH3   And of course the Canon 5d mark ii       I've looked into renting, the equipment from the places near by and on the internet. The prices are quite steep £300 for the weekend, that's almost 10% of my total budget.     I'm going to operate as a single shooter until I can find a fellow videographer that I can trust. I will be using my friends Nikon D7100 as my back up camera, until my budget stretches to be able to afford one. I've lined up a wedding to shoot in August the couple weren't going to have it film so I asked if I could for my website and showreel. I'm aware of the dangers but they are friends and I've let them know that it'll be my first wedding shoot.    Seriously thank you all      
  11. Hello all, Firstly thank you for taking the time to open this and at least read this far. For those of you that aren't here to give constructive advice and help please look else where to spread your negativity. If you've carried on read then thank you. I was an animator, film maker, director and editor a few year ago, but since the economic downfall I've now found a new career path in working with young people. I use my skills and knowledge base to engage the otherwise forgotten about youth of Birmingham, UK. I've researched over the last five years the possibility of creating a wedding videography business. I'm not thinking of it as a full time career, not as yet any how. But I really miss the create elements involved in producing creative pieces of film and I'm fed up of seeing the terrible quality of the videographers in my local area charging a small fortune. Since I've been out for a while I've done quite a bit of research on equipment and I'm finding so many conflicting reviews. It's proving difficult to narrow down and actually buy some equipment. Here's what I'm thinking so far: Canon 5d mark 2 with lens 1 £1,500 Memory 2 £440 Lexar Professional 128GB 800X 120MB/s High Speed UDMA CompactFlash Memory Card Steady Cam 1 £500 Steadicam Merlin 2 Mic 1 £150 Rode VideoMic Pro Camera Monopod 1 £130 Manfrotto Fluid Video Monopod Total £2,720 I'm interested into what you guys think and if I've missed anything out equipment wise. I'm looking for a DSLR that is suited towards video shooting full HD at least 50fps. I've read that the panasonic GH3 hacked are the best for video but over the past few years the Mark 2 still seems to be a strong favourite. Thank's in advance for your time and help Regards
