Story of an Outdoor Photographer (Sony A6500 documentary)

Recommended Posts

“Anyone can photograph nature”, a fashion photographer once said. “You just have to wait for the right light!” I disagree. In my opinion, there's more to that than meets the eye. This is the story of Latvian outdoor lifestyle photographer Filips Baumanis.

This is me attempting story-driven filmmaking for the first time, as previously I've mostly done landscape and travel content (a seen on www.eaglewoodfilms.com). Shot on the trusty Sony A6500 and Phantom 4 Pro for aerials. Did all the shooting, editing, grading and sound design myself.

Nice work man. Makes me want to go to Latvia you showed it well.

 

For feedback I'd say this: the jump cut at 2:40 was my favorite part and I think that cut hinted at connecting the separate places Filips is exploring in a really effective way. You did a couple examples of cutting on matching action throughout the film (mostly putting wood in and out of the car and chopping) but I think you could push more of these cuts like the one of him jumping. I think that told the story best. Keep it up.
