Awesome dancing and impressive they can have a wet stage like that... Must be a very well equipped theater.Was this a dress rehersal, or a shoot to capture this footage? Two thoughts some to mind, if this was set-up with the explicit goal of capturing the footage would it be possible to get the dancer to be a little more "on the spot" for the close ups? Sometimes I am a little hesitant to ask for something specific, but in a case like this it might work well to ask the talent to give you a minute of dance either on a planned route or on the spot...Just a thought, I don't know how realistic it is.
This was shot in the middle of the tech rehearsal. No notice or time to set up anything. I had been shooting stills and someone nudged me and told me Luke Hawkins was about to do the dance number. I used the still camera I had in hand and switched to video at 29.97 fps, 60th of a second, wide open and then shot a medium and then a tighter shot during his number. Once it was done his suit was soaked and the crew was out with the squeegees and there was no time for a do over. I'm just happy with my handheld panning......
Prefocused? If not, tracking seems eye-opening, promising to be amazingly good.
Very nice camera work!
I must have missed the hand held bit. It does look really good and will add a great deal of value in any final use!
Panning and focus are spot on. Great work!Did you AF or MF? If AF, how did you have it set up?
