Video Preview: Tim & Erin

This weekend I lucked into working with a 5DmkII, the latest version of the camera that I usually have on hand for weddings. Like all god Canon photographers I had been lusting after this body since rumors about it were circulating the Internet.

Thankfully this past weekend I was free to experiment with its capabilities at a wedding (don't worry, I never use clients for experimentation). My college roommate Tim was getting married and they already had their photographers, so I decided to switch into video mode and kick the tires.

Back in my days as a reporter video was an important part of what we were trying to accomplish on the Web, so the site would become a one stop shop for the town. These were simple pieces, often of events, to give people a taste of being there even if they couldn't make it out. I tried to bring that to this quick mash-up of the reception, just right for the web and sharing with friends and far short of what a good videographer might do for you.

I learned an awful lot with this piece and I hope that everyone can sit back and enjoy (and think about adding their own web videos to share with their wedding guests).
