This documentary project was shot over a 1 and 1/2 Day period and edited overnight for the Veritas retreat. Â I haven’t tweaked anything since the first rough edit, but wanted to get something up.
This was all shot with the Nikon D7000 in mostly very low light conditions with very high ISO Ranges.

I just got in the new Nikon d7000 and I wanted to do a quick test to see how the video function performed. Â This footage and audio is straight out of camera with no post work other than slicing the frames together. Shot hand held with Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 in all natural light. I was actually really impressed!
James Charles stood in for me as my test subject. Â Maybe I should have cleaned up his face and his runny nose, or even taken the candy out of his mouth, but hey… Its a raw test ;)
I was soooo pumped yesterday to be able to go over and visit Blake and Erin Cuccio along with their new little addition. Â At 1:25am yesterday morning they welcomed Vaughn Anthony Cuccio. Â Vaughn is such a beautiful baby! Â He was so alert you would never know it was his first day. Â Blake and Erin are amazing friends of mine and I know that their lives are going to continue to get better and better as they watch this little boy grow. Â They were kind enough to let me take a ton of pictures. Â Vaughn was having his first little photo shoot and he did such a great job at it! Â Anyway… I just wanted to share a few of my favorites from yesterday.
I can’t remember if I’ve posted this video or not, but I wanted to share it either way. Â It is a cool stop motion video about a love story. Â Most of the shots were filmed with aÂ Sony HVR V1 and he also used a Nikon D70s. Â I just love the direction and the styling of this short film. Â Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Last week I had the opportunity to spend a few days with the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows order in Shreveport, La. Â These ladies had such an amazing spirit and joy about their lives. Â The images are going to be used in conjunction with their new website design by CrucÃ© which will be launching within the next month or so. Â I was honored to be a part of it along with Jason Cohen. Â The sisters were from all over the world and spoke many different languages which was really fun to hear and interesting to translate.
The first couple of images were shot with the Nikon D3 and the rest were shot on the Leica M8.
Today is Ashton’s Birthday. Â He is now officially 2 years old. Â I tried to get him to do a little video for you guys, but it failed miserably. Â Here is a failed attempt at trying to get Ashton to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Â I think the A, B, C’s come out in there. Â My favorite part that makes me laugh is at the very end. Â That kid is something else!
TOKYO â€“ Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of its newest FX-format digital SLR flagship for fast response and high light sensitivity: the Nikon D3S.
Standing on the shoulders of the world-renowned D3, the D3S takes the potential of Nikon’s proprietary FX format to incredible new levels designed to meet or exceed a professional’s high standards. The D3S delivers ISO 200 to ISO 12800 as standard, with the excellent noise control and wide dynamic range that the D3 is famous for. This provides photographers of any discipline with additional latitude to achieve quality images in most lighting situations. When needed, ISO sensitivity can be expanded from Lo 1 (ISO 100 equivalent) up to Hi 3 (ISO 102400 equivalent), making a significant difference in extremely low-lit shooting scenarios and other situations where faster shutter speeds or more depth of field is required.
In a first for an FX-format flagship, the D3S incorporates the HD-quality D-Movie function, letting users take full advantage of the wide dynamic range and high ISO performance, including the breakthrough High-Sensitivity Movie mode. The D3S’s D-Movie also offers compatibility with an external stereo recording microphone, as well as convenient in-camera editing functions such as the ability to select the starting or ending points in order to trim D-Movie footage, as well as the option to save selected movie frames as JPEGs. The D3S shoots approximately 9-frames-per-second high-speed continuous shooting in FX format and 11 fps in DX format, with a buffer twice the size of the D3’s. These features, along with a 0.04-second* shutter release time lag and improved AF accuracy work seamlessly for lightning-fast responses. Various improvements in ergonomics, operation, and reliability, such as image sensor cleaning, will help photographers focus on shooting under any conditions. When combined with state-of-the-art NIKKOR lenses and the Nikon Total Imaging System, which includes Nikon Speedlights, wireless transmitters and various software, the D3S delivers exceptional quality and versatility for an unprecedented variety of professional and personal assignments.
