Pivothead Smart Video Recording Glasses Unboxed

By |June 9th, 2015|Gear, Technology, Videos|0 Comments

The Pivothead Smart Architect Edition video recording glasses have finally arrived to those of us who back their Indiegogo campaign. For me, it is a highly anticipated and exciting day because they’ve packed some amazing technology into these glasses. The glasses capture 1080p30, 720p60 or 720p30 video and 8MP still images. If you get the Live Smartmod, you will be able to tether to your phone, tablet or connect through a computer to a wifi […]

Overlooking the reef in the West Bay of Roatan. The water is clear and the reefs are incredible which attracts many snorkelers and divers. I only had 30 minutes of daylight left, so it was a short, but beautiful swim to the end of this peninsula.

This morning I returned before our flight out to get some footage and pictures with a DJI Phantom and GoPro. […]

The Decision To Travel With Mirrorless Cameras

By |February 17th, 2014|Gear, Photography, Technology, Travel, Videos|0 Comments

Going completely mirrorless for my photo & video work has not been an easy decision, but for my personally work I have been mirrorless for a year now.  Next week I am going to be going mirrorless on my first work trip.  Previously I’ve carried a Canon 5D Mark III as my primary camera and either my Sony NEX 5-N or Fuji X-Pro 1 as my backup camera.  Last week I tore a muscle in […]

Video Recording Glasses Review: Pivothead & Google Glass

By |January 6th, 2014|Community Development, Featured, Gear, Haiti, Humanitarian, Operation Blessing, Technology, Tips & Techniques, Videos|0 Comments

I had the pleasure of shooting video with both of these glasses on a recent trip to Haiti and wanted to share my experience with them. Both have their strong points, but I see Pivothead as the stronger of the two from a video production standpoint. Google Glass does have other features that make it a great tool for day-to-day wearing, but the video quality is not as good as Pivothead.

To check out the features […]

Mt Kilimanjaro Kenya Panorama

Ever since I attended the Time Lapse and Panorama workshop by Richard Harrington at NAB, I have been trying to incorporate these techniques into my photographic repertoire. Because most of my work is story-based, I had to add time to my day to capture these “extras” that aid the story but take more time to accomplish. My trip to Kenya was the […]

Water Is Life Digital Art Project

In my travels around the world, there is one thing that I hear over and over, “Water is life.” Granted, unclean water can lead to sickness and death, but the lack of water is even more detrimental.  Not only does our body need water to live, but it is also instrumental for growing crops, keeping animals, […]

How to create a Photography eBook using your iPadThings have been slow for me on social media, but it is not because my work has slowed down. In fact, it is the opposite. I’ve been working on some cool projects at Operation Blessing and have been using some of my free time at home to complete the projects – time that I would normally have used […]

Over the years, I’ve tried different methods to keep GPS records of the places I’ve been and where I’ve taken photos. Until now, it has been a hassle and I have only done it a few times. Today I’m going to share with you my new process for placing photos and being able to share them on Google Maps. My method isn’t spot […]

Life At The Beach Timelapse

By |April 24th, 2013|Creativity, Gear, Photography, Technology, Tips & Techniques, Travel, USA, Videos|0 Comments

I shot these clips in an afternoon while we had offsite meetings about upcoming work projects. The images were captured on a 5D Mark II with a Vello Shutterboss. I shot RAW and edited the images in Lighroom and assembled them in FCPX. I took Richard Harrington’s NAB time-lapse workshop and have been hooked on time-lapse video since. I’m still playing around with settings and finding out what works best. I don’t have any de-flicker software yet, so I decided to enhance the look with flash frames during the edit process.

And if creating a cool Timelapse video isn’t enough for you to try it yourself, you have the added bonus of hundreds of images to pick through to find still frames you like.
