Readers! I must apologize for my absence. Senior semester of college is tough, I have to say. Almost every week I have a major assignment due — which has caused me to neglect you! So I am going to make a return to blogging, but probably only at a weekly rate. As for this post, I’ll update you guys on what I’ve been up to.
I wanted some new lenses for my Canon 70D, so I’ve been scouring nearby antique stores and internet vendors for cheap, vintage SLR lenses. If you find the right brands, you can get a nice cinematic look about them. Here are two links that tell you more: Vintage Manual Lenses for Video & Better Lenses for Less Money. And here are two lens tests I did with my new (old) YUS Automatic 135mm f2.8.
Finally, I found some cool contests to enter this year. I’ll post more details as those come around, but I am in planning stages on that. I’m also still planning out my web series pilot, another Sammy tape, and a few documentary ideas. I also worked as DP on a classmates production, and that was really fun. I’ll work that into my demo reel hopefully! So what have you guys been up to?
