Wow these sandwiches sound super yum, especially the apple ones!I cam across you on vimeo - Your cooking videos are amazing. I was actually researching cooking videos to do one as an assignment -I wanted to go for the style you use, so I was glad to find yours as an example! They are beautiful.Do you set the camera up on a tripod? and press the buttons yourself? Or does someone help you?Thankyou for inspiring me!
Hi Hannah, So glad you're enjoying the videos! My background is in film production and food styling, so I bring that experience to the videos I make for web. I create a shot list and direct the shoot, while my DP captures the images. I wanted my videos to be as close to my photography as possible so I use a 5d with my Nikon lens kit. Most of the fun comes when I get to edit them in post. In order to give the imagery fluidity and life, it's important to have someone behind the camera while someone else is in front of it. A quick pan, follow focus, or dolly move makes a huge (though subtle) difference in the final product, and you need someone behind the camera to have that happen. Hope this helps! xo Claire
Thanks so much for your detailed response! I noticed the panning shots, I will have to try those. I have to edit the video in Final Cut Pro, which I found fun on a previous assignment. Thanks for the tips, they will definitely help, and I look forward to seeing more recipes from you :)
I love the first one! I made one similar but didn't add the shallots. It seems like an interesting and delicious addition I'll have to try it.-Amber
