Just finished some homework for school, and figured I would post it up on my blog.
For my over-exposed shot I did not use a neutral density filter, and for the properly exposed shot I did use it. The settings for my over-exposed shot are:
Color Temp: 3100k
Color Temp: 3600k
(Neutral Density Filter 0.6)
I didn’t mind this shot, but I wanted a different look then what I got. I turned off the fill light. I didn’t change the camera settings, and the results gave me a closed loop lighting “Rembrandt” final image.
NOT ACTUAL SCENES FROM THE FILM….
I created this teaser to help with raising money to make my short film happen..

I finally got my vest and arm stabilizer system yesterday. The FedEx guy dropped off 3 big, and heavy boxes. One box was the Tripod to hold all the equipment, the other box was the Vest, and the biggest and heaviest box was the arm, and fly cam stabilizer. I have to say I am totally satisfied with everything. The tripod was well made and super sturdy. the vest and arm were beautiful and worked great. The only thing I didn’t like is the crappy instructions, probably took me 3 hours to get everything together, and fitted right. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap one since they can cost up to $13,000. I only paid $1,400 with shipping off ebay. I also found another one on there after I bought mine of course for $625 so with shipping it would of been $800. Not bad, so look around and get a good deal bought you wont be disappointed. It the Pro aim vest and arm stabilizer 5500.
On July 7th I bought myself a birthday present, since my birthday is in 4 days now. I got the PRO AIM vest and arm 5500 camera stabilizer system. It hasn’t been shipped yet so I am unable to post picks of it yet. I hope that its quality is really good, though you could say its one of the cheaper ones. I did pay over a grand for it, but compared to 2-3, and even $12,000 dollars, its on the cheap side. the looks of it though look really well made, but that is just the pictures. There was no bad feedback on it though, and it looked more professional looking then the ones that are a bit more expensive. I will post pictures of it when it freaking comes. For some reason when I buy something I really want it takes like a fricken month just to get it, anything else though comes in two days. I’ll update later guys, thanks for the follows.
A couple photos of the footage a recently got. The photos look better then the footage does. Driving while recording causes a lot of shaky footage.

Not the best stabilizer, but it is definitely better then doing hand held shot while standing on a steep hill.
