Thread: My little girl's first stpes

    Default My little girl's first stpes

    My little girl took her first steps this week. Of course, I was there with a camera. As you might expect, the actual filming isn't perfect, but it captured a great moment! One thng that constantly frustrates me is the lack of decent lighting in my hous. Anyone have any tips for discreet lighting?

    Great video! Now you better exchange this camera for more .45 ammunition!! You´ll have trouble keeping the boys away in a few years.....

    It's perfect Marc, much better than the one I did of my daughter. I love the shot of her with the green box on her head.

    Fist Steps - that's what I have to blame for getting into this hobby. (First steps of Elise that is, not Elyssa, obviously).
    But I don't think I ever took them - at least nothing worth watching. You make it look easy, Marc. A loely video.

    I'd try to keep it as natural as possible for this type of video, but even subtle direction, of kids or adults, in relation to lighting can take away naturalness.

    A simple white reflector would be handy, and convenient, but your wife would probably soon hate you when she notice her assumed assistant role.

    One of the guys at our video club has just bought some led, rechargeable battery powered spots that can mounted to a camera tripod. Not exactly subtle bit not to intrusive either.
