I recently did a location shoot for Walden. Walden offers a world-class travel destination and an innovative spa-lifestyle community. Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s credo for happiness in daily living, “simplify, simplify,” Walden is composed of an award winning inn, luxurious spa, residential community, and golf club. In addition to the still photos I captured for their new website, I secretly shot video for Dynamic Visuals to be used for their website, marketing, or other promotional purposes.
I am in love with my camera! I am, I can’t help it! I do love my fiance, but he knows that my heart belongs first and foremost to my Nikon D3s. The decision to acquire this new member of the Kim Ponsky Photography family came with some pressure… how could I justify the purchase so it wasn’t just a new toy? I had to make it count! I had to find a new and spectacular way to utilize its awesome and magical powers. Not only can this camera practically shoot in the dark, but it also captures HD video. When I first began playing around with that feature, anyone who viewed what I shot was sure to get seasick! It took some practice to learn to shoot with a steady hand… but I’ve definitely gotten better, and am now capturing what we’re calling “Dynamic Visuals” — cinematic clips with the tangibility of video, but the artistic composition of a portrait photographer.
When we have two photographers on site for a wedding- one of us can capture still images, while the other shoots video. What comprehensive coverage! Imagine, no longer having to hire a videographer and a photographer — we’re a one stop shop!
Take a look at a short promo we put together from a recent wedding!
