A Lesser Known Square in Venice

Passport Sunday! Video Edit behind-the-scenes

I recently visited an amazing place in Fiji called Laucala Island. I’m old friends with the General Manager there and I primarily went there to take photos. But, while there, we decided to add a video to the mix. If you’re a Passport Member, you’ll hear more about the client work agreement that went into this and see how I  edit the video. I’ve gone back-and-forth with their marketing team a few times, so I’m trying to make everything perfect for them, being an over-deliver kinda guy like I am!

Quadcopter Tutorial

If you’re a Passport member you also get full access to my all-new Quadcopter tutorial that will hopefully save you countless weeks of trouble, as you learn from all the mistakes I have made! There is a great section at the end about editing video too that I think you’ll enjoy.

(For everyone else, the tutorial is 50% off in our store today…)

Video Edit behind-the-scenes of the Fiji Project

I used Screenflow Pro to do all the editing for this video, even though I actually recommend Final Cut or Premiere for more serious videos. Screenflow was just barely strong enough to do all the heavy lifting for this one. Anyway, in this video, you’ll see how I chose to edit and re-organize this video based on client feedback.

Daily Photo – A Lesser Known Square in Venice

I found this place by accident when I was arriving into Venice and trying to find my digs for the Biennale. I now know my way around the confusing town, but it’s really kind of a drain when you are dragging a big bag all around the city with you. Most of the effort is getting up and down over dozens of bridges… and there is always a sinking feeling that you’re going completely the wrong direction and will have to go back over that same bridge again!

Daily Photo – The Infinity Pool

The only thing missing from this infinity pool is some female with a perfect body in a bikini, right? In a lot of ways, that feels like a very obvious shot, I think. It’s a pretty enough pool on its own I must say. I can also make the case that the scene is more interesting with a person in there. I don’t know… I go back and forth on this. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I both want to put a person in there (male or female), and also I don’t want to because it seems so obvious. This is a nice duality to think about without any conclusion.

Floating in Fiji

Passport Sunday How-To

Today’s how-to if you’re a Passport Member is how I created this photo out of nine different shots. It was a fun (and relatively easy, actually) one to process. I’m not one of those guys who makes things seem more difficult than they really are! 🙂

Editing a 9-photo panorama with adjustments in LR

In today’s edit, you’ll see how (and why) I took 9 shots from the new Mavic 2 Zoom and made some adjustments in Lightroom before bringing the whole shebang into Aurora. BTW, in case you have a lot of extra money sitting around, you can go check out this resort at Laucala Island.

Daily Photo – Floating in Fiji

This turned out to be a perfect evening for photos. I think those purple, cloudy, mysterious skies are some of my favorite. And couple that with the perfectly blue, warm, and inviting winner, and you have a winner! I hope you enjoy watching the edit of this one today!
