Livebooks, a leader in website design for visual artists, and Vimeo, the online giant for videographers and creatives, recently joined forces to offer their clients new integrated websites that can showcase both video and still photography.
As an avid user of Vimeo and a long time client of Livebooks, my site has undergone a a major redesign to showcase both my video and still photography work on their behalf for promotional purposes.
Collaborations are in my opinion some of the best opportunities to create without the fear of failure, restrictions of a client, or the tensions associated with deadlines. On a recent Sunday afternoon, Jorge Rubiera and I, got together on Miami Beach to create the second installment to the Vintage Mavens online clothing line campaign created by Shareen Sarwar.
We used the 7D and a Bartech wireless focus control on a glidecam for this shoot, and the ISO ranged from 400 - 12,000. Luckily the moon was full that evening which created a beautiful backlight on the water. We used a regular flash light for the fill / gag lighting once the sun went down and the layering effect helped with the digital noise produced from the high ISO.
