On Saturday it was off to the GAA Centre on Mobhi Road http://www.experiencegaelicgames.com were they had a go at Hurling and Gaelic football, they all had a ball and I am sure them being bloggers told the world.
Great weekend had by all.
I had the pleasure of filming the official opening of St Francis Hospice in Blanchardstown
on Saturday 23’rd of May 2015. There were many dignitaries in attendance that wanted to feel part of an historic event that several years ago seemed a pipe dream.
The day started with a gathering of the helpers and fundraisers who over the past few years dedicated their lives to helping to see this a reality.
Guest were met by Dee Kinnane and her team.
There was a tremendous effort by a lot of people to have it looking so well.
The Halleluiah Gospel Choir helped with the music and sounded fantastic.
Fran Quigley from CAVS done all the sound and audio visual and did a great job as always.
It was a great honour to be there on the day and see all the hard work coming together at the opening.
Wedding Video Production and Light
Wedding videos have got to be up there in the shooting difficulty stakes. Weddings are full of one off moments of which you only get one chance to capture.
The ‘once in a lifetime’ nature of a wedding swiftly notches up the pressure to capture as much as possible, in as many places as possible, all at the same time. If you think that video cameras can see in the dark well they can but this is exactly what you get dark and uninteresting shots.
Only a professional videographer will know how much light to use to get the right balance without upsetting the decorum of the situation. The wedding video is now a wedding DVD and by its nature can be taken both indoors and outdoors, but indoor shots can be quite dark.
This is also evident with the lighted back drops that are being used more now, a camera has a tendency to hunt for light it occasionally gets it wrong and can make faces dark, as shown in the pictures below.
So when your wedding videographer or photographer insists on some extra light being used, don’t be put off, they tend to know what is required for your images to look best after the fact. You can see below that the introduction of some light has dramatically changed the situation .
You are familiar with a photographer using flash, he needs his flash for a split second in order to get nice crisp pic in the dark, this applies to videography too only video works slightly different in that we have 24 frames per second and as such need constant light whether it be 10 watts or 20.
