So here's the deal: this summer, I made a lot of sacrifices to purchase a 7d with some lenses, tripod and some more stuff, setup is still growing. I'm really happy, personally, with the results/capacities of the cam and so on, but I feel that there is still room for improvement! So, I wanted to ask you, NS members, what you really think about those three edits (some critique that could help me get better!). Edits should go in the way of progression: first edit was only filmed in 50fps with the 50mm f/1.8 II, was a sort of test on a Sunday afternoon. Second video: just got the Glidetrack SD, so tried couple shots with it, unfortunately my friend crashed on the roadgap and broke his pedal, and couldn't ride the whole afternoon. And third is a little friday afternoon at my local bowl, tried out some Glidetrack angles and my brand new Tokina 11-16!. So basically, those edits are more something like tests, that's why they're short. So if you got any tips, observations or anything, don't hesitate!
Edit 2 :
Hopefully it will work! And hopefully I will get some answers!
Oh and if you have some more time for me, I made a little website, but it's all in French, because I'm Swiss, but remarks on the website would be welcome too!
Thanks in advance!
(In anticipation, I apologize for my bad english grammar)
I thought those were all super sick! Im no expert, but your angles were good, editing, I liked all of it. I thought was done pretty well. Just a question are you using a small jib for those shots in your 3rd edit like at 0:41? Keeping on killin these edits.
Yup, it's called "Glidetrack SD" from the company "Glidetrack" (search on google, they've got some pretty legit stuff!) Which helps a lot, because it's a dolly system which is mounted on the tripod, and not the opposite, so you avoid to take a piece of wood and others on the slope!
Thanks! Yes I noticed that too, was a common idea with a stoned friend, he was like "hey, why don't you just put the tipod on the end of the glidetrack, so that the rail is leaning in diagonal" and after that I just tried a couple times, and thought it looked good! But surely, no need to put it 20 times in an edit, gets boring after a while...
