Title: See Irv smooth talking models...
Post by: Jonathan on April 21, 2010, 08:03:49 AM
OK.  I did a behind the scenes video a few weeks ago and got some great feedback.
You told me you wanted
1. More technical details
2. More interaction with models
3. Better sound
4. Shots interspersed throughout the video
5. More beautiful ladies in posh frocks
6. Fewer "erms"

So I listened to them all.  Apart from number 6.

See what you think.  (And yes I know I sound bored for about the first 30 seconds - there are good technical reasons for that.)

A wonderful video, and plenty of helpful photography hints too. Thank you.

I also liked this much better that the last. It was more interesting and engaging and I felt the time just whizzed by. You got some great pictures from the shoot. I will certainly watch it again. If I was being super-picky I'd suggest that next time you could sharpen up the opening sequence a little more (e.g. light yourself better, change the shooting angle, maybe include a little more of the background for context and interest). I hope that you make many more as they are very worth watching.  ;D

Excellent! gave a very good impression of the day, was informative and entertaining.

Only downside, not enough of Irv.  :D

Thanks everyone :)

@Eileen - yeah I'm pretty unhappy with the start.  I cringe every time I see it.  We recorded that at the end of a very long day.  I had to redub nearly all the audio because I sounded really bored (when in fact I was tired).  And yeah the lighting should have been a lot better.  We'd have reshot but needed to blend with Rebecca's bit.

Next time it will be better ;)

OK, first off - great video, huge improvement over the last one.
Oddly enough i was listening for the um's but actually very few around.
Nicely story boarded leading you from beginning to end whilst keeping you interested through out.

As i watched it i was minded of the Harold Wood shoot and watching you at work there. Important lesson - building the rapport with the subjects (clients, models etc)
The techie info was nicely put across without being too techie in its language or condescending to the newcomers.
Did Irv get enough air time? Definitely - and i think Irv will be pleased to have a copy of this for his collection.
I have no doubt that Irv learned sooo much that day and his photography will reach new heights.
The intro - why harp on about something that has already been discussed, but then if that is all we have to criticise - then you've clearly got it right  :tup: :tup: :tup:

I have a few people i will e-mail the link to who are not members of this site, because i think they will find it useful.
Had i not done Harold Wood, i would have found enormously useful. Pity it wasn't available before  :-\

Look forward to the next one.

Irv obviously had one of those subliminal roles! ;)

Hey!  fame at last anyone who wants my autograph before I start selling them had better ask now  ;D

 Seriously, a great improvement in the way the video was put together, Jonathan. With the pics inserted at the relevant times and the commentary flowing smoothly it's a great reminder of how you work.

Well Bill you won't see too many Prima Donnas throwing themselves to the ground every time somebody touches them! Mind you perhaps Wycombe Wanderers should have done just that this season now they're off to Div 2! ::)
