For the past four and a half years, I’ve been recording services at the Coptic Center here in the Grand Rapids area, and using this as practice as I develop my skills as a videographer.
I started in 2013 with the Nikon D800 camera I bought for still photography, and then added a ‘real’ video camera (Sony AX100) to my kit in April 2016 when I saw that I was getting more calls to do video jobs than I was getting for still photography jobs. Last month (December 2017), I purchased a professional video camera, the Panasonic DVX200. I also have a small Yi 4K action cam.
Last night, I set up three of my cameras to record the presentation at the Coptic Center, and I have to say I’m quite happy with the results.
What surprised me, though, was that editing the footage together didn’t take much more time than editing two cameras. A little over two hours.
So, for the time being, I’m adding this video to my portfolio as an example of what I can do. For those looking to hire me, I can produce a similar video for around $200 for personal use / $400 for (royalty-free) commercial use.
