Setting up an overhead camera for stock footage

This is my setup for an overhead camera angle for recording stock footage. As I am still working on making myself feel better, I needed to take my mind off being ill. I decided to do another stock footage recording. This is my 2nd attempt at stock footage with the Sony A6500 – video below….

Video Stock Footage setup – my BTS DIY lighting setup

I have been ill, recently, and have been having some difficulty with work… I am not the type to not work, my mind is not geared towards it. Doing photography and videos are my stress relievers. It’s difficult to not be able to work full time at work and be incapacitated to a degree that…

Why I chose a Prepaid Mobile Plan

Having kids is one thing, having several kids that need phones is another! I had an extra phone that I had been testing out (Letv X500) which was available for me to give to my daughter, I just did not want to add an additional line to my plan at this time. I got the…

The Letus35 Bokeh Maker – back to the classic

Back when I got the Sony Fx-1, I wanted to get that bokeh effect and get that cinematic feels. I went crazy looking at all sorts of bokeh kits but I wasn’t feeling the DIY aspect and the other systems that were available were pricey. Mind you, the Letus35 is also pricey but was at…

The Best HD Camera Still – the Sony HDR-Fx1

The Sony Fx1 was the best purchase I ever made over a decade ago and it still holds up very well for capturing video. I love this Sony Fx-1 so much that I still try to find ways to utilize it in some way. I want to say this was one of Sony’s first prosumer…

Korean Walnut Pastry – American Made

Got this fantastic Walnut Pastry from friends in California. I’ve never heard of Cocohodo till now but they make some awesome tasty morsels of sweet Korean dessert delicacy. The cookie is soft and moist. It’s like a mini cake but with red bean paste filling and a piece of walnut on the inside. It dries…
