photoshoot

This could have ended a lot worse:

This was shot using a DJI phantom and a gopro camera. This was two days before the wedding at their bridal shoot. This happened towards the beginning. I had done one successful fly by and i brought it around for another pass to make sure it was smooth. I underestimated the lift time and it hit the groom on the side of the face. He had a cut on his cheek and and the side of his head.

You can view the entire video which includes footage after the collision HERE.

Looks-Shopped-Tell-By-Pixelshahah wow, that would have been a pretty close fly-by.  I hope the photographer didn’t charge anything for the shoot.

Posted because of my love for quadcopters and drones, preferably weaponized.

Elaborate marketing scheme?  Real?  Shopped?  Can you tell by the pixels?

The fact that I haven’t yet bought and expensive camera and started calling myself a photographer kind of bothers me:

People can say what they want about how photography is so “tough”, but I’ve borrowed some expensive cameras in the past and I think this saying holds true:

Buy an expensive camera and you’re a photographer.  Buy a flute, and you own a flute.

I’m not saying taking pictures of bullets in flight, and fast birds from far away etc.. etc.. doesn’t take skill, because it definitely does.   Don’t even try to tell me that I could be dropped in a room with a few hundred thousand dollar car, some girls and some guns, equipped with ~$XXXX worth of camera and lenses and NOT come out with some sweet looking pictures.  

What a bunch of random tattoos on those girls.  Not my thing.. but I suppose “edgy” models can get a lot of work nowadays.

It took us about 5 minutes to bring everyone up to speed, place people around the room, and figure out a rough path. The original shot is a little over two minutes long. It’s obviously really hard to get 40 people to hold still for that long, so a lot of the sped up sections hide some of the movement. The other sped up and slowed down parts were just to emphasize it’s epic awesomeness.

I really like the concept.  I assumed they did it the way they said they did before I read the description. The only other way I know to get this effect is to actually have a large number of still cameras fire simultaneously and then you can stitch the pictures together like a video, but that way is obviously more expensive and way more time consuming.

Yea the trigger discipline is non existent on some of the models, but its art/photography so it’s to be expected.

A Steadicam is one of those things I want to get as soon as I get a new video camera.

Everyone’s favorite hot Hollywood mess did a photo shoot last night with a handgun and some Lingerie:

Trigger control and muzzle control is predictably non existent. Also, the photo shoot turns to some sort of disturbing murder/suicide type theme at around 3 minutes.

If that photoshoot was done tomorrow instead I would have called it a Freaky Friday.  hehe

Anyone know what the gun is?

UPDATE: CTMike immediately said the gun was a Browning BDA, and it was confirmed by others.  Chad also included a a pic.  Thanks guys.
