Over the past few months I have been teaching myself video and exploring different areas with a completely different point of view, seeing as how it's different then photography. One of the areas in town I always wanted to make a short film about was FWCI. Even though it's getting pretty run down these days I still think it has so much character and potential to be beautiful again. You can view the resulting video below, but while I was there I also managed to take some photos as well.
The camera of choice was the Sony A6300 paired with the 16-50mm lens. I have since 'upgraded' to the 35mm 1.8 which I absolutely love, but you can see from the photos below that you don't always need the most expensive lenses to get decent photos. I think if I were to buy the lens on its own, It costs about $150.
I specifically got the A6300 for video and I think it is an amazing, versatile and extremely fun camera to learn videography on. What surprised me most from the Sony are the photos that it can take. Especially with the 35mm, the colours rival my Fuji cameras which are known for their great colour rendering. Plus, the focus on it is the fastest out of all my cameras, even my full frame Nikons.
That's about it. I just wanted to share some of the photos from that day. If you like the video below, don't hesitate to check out my YouTube channel. I'm still learning and teaching myself the basics of video, but I'm excited to see where it takes me.
Thanks for viewing!
