What settings do you use when shooting videos?
I actually don’t really think about this… whatever settings make the image look good. Well, one thing I tend to do is to shoot with a wide open lens. I most often shoot with f/2.8 or f/4. And instead of changing the aperture to set the right exposure, I’ll set the ISO.
In your experience, how long should a video be and how do you keep your viewer engaged?
I think it depends on the video and where the video is going to be seen. When it’s online (Vimeo, YouTube or Facebook), shorter videos work better.
Among the gadgets that you own, is there anything that you wish you hadn’t bought and why?
I once bought a shoulder rig that I’ve only used once. After that, I’ve not used any shoulder rigs again. I am quite a long guy, so I realised that shooting from my shoulder makes every shot “high angle” which looks weird.
If you could take a video of anything, anyone, anywhere… please share with us what it would be.
Haha… I think I will keep this as a secret. But I enjoy working with music and music videos. So working with artists is always super fun.
