I had an incredible opportunity to partner with Lindsay Walden Photography, based out of DFW Texas, to create an adorable video for her newborn photography business.

One day Lindsay was walking through an art gallery with a few other photographers and she was so inspired by all of the gorgeous art that an incredible idea hit her! What if she created Masterpiece Newborn Photographs inspired by the real Masterpiece's we see in art galleries???

Her mind was reeling with the thought and she began mapping out how she could accomplish it.  One step led to the next step and before she realized, she was recreating gorgeous masterpiece's inspired by Vincent van Gogh, Monet, Degas, and many others.

The beauty in her photographic art is that she creates "living" backdrops (thats' what I'm calling them).  She hand dye's the wool, makes the recreation, and then places the newborn into the middle of it - it isn't done in photoshop...this is real life art.

Take a peek at her photos and watch her promo video below...you will thank me! :)
 

It's truly an amazing thing what she does.  If you have a newborn photography business - adding video to your website is one of the best invesments you can make.  It gives your clients the reassurance they need to trust you with their tiny human.

How To Get Great Sound For Your Videos

Equipment, Video MarketingRenee Angela MediaComment

When you think about video you usually don't think about the sound factor until it's filming day and you're scrambling around like "why didn't I even think of this?!".

I know. It's happened to me before too! But considering your audio is one of the must-do items on your video production list. You don't have to have super expensive gear to get started but consider upgrading your audio quality at some point down the road, it will make a huge difference


FOR POD-CASTERS, BLOGGERS, VLOGGERS, & EDUCATORS

If you're a podcaster, blogger, vlogger, or online educator having a great microphone at your computer is probably one of the most valuable pieces of gear to have on hand.

A quick search on amazon will pull up a variety of USB microphones for you to choose from.  Do your research carefully to make sure you're getting something with an affordable price for you and great sound quality.  Personally I love Rode Mics and think they meet affordability and quality needs
Amazon - USB Mics


SHOTGUN MICS

Shotgun mics will come in handy for photographers, workshop educators, and anyone that wants to capture some surround noises for their film.  These are easy to attach to your DSLR and don't require a ton of fiddling to get it just right.

I own this mic and attach it in almost every instance that I don't need a Lavaliere Mic (for interviews, etc), but that I know I'll need to capture some audio.

Here's a quick guide on the different type of DSLR Mics: http://bhpho.to/1RfHy39

**as a side note** If you're going to film your kids school play and you want to get better audio than what your point and shoot video camera, or DSLR will provide - this is a good option as well.  This will capture noise from all around you - so you will pick up the coughers and sneezers, but if you sit close enough to the front you could eliminate 70% of those noises.


LAVALIERE MIC

These Microphones tend to be a little more costly but they are an essential mic to have if you are going to record interviews, 1:1 speaking, etc.  This is the type of audio you're used to from news anchors and news reporters.

You can find these online at B&H Photo, or through Amazon in an array of prices, but the really good ones will cost you some bucks.

You can find great ones for middle of the road prices anywhere from $100 - $300.


I hope this small breakdown gives you a beginners look at adding audio to your videos.  One of the best parts about hiring us for your video project is that you don't have to think about these things! We do the thinking for you! And it's one less piece of gear you need to worry about keeping track of.
