I moderated a round-table discussion, touching on the importance of storytelling and the intricacies of lighting, where Colby, while reiterating his distaste for artificial lighting, shared some fantastic tips for shooting in natural moonlight. On the other end of the spectrum (there’s a pun in there, isn’t there?), we had Dave and Wil of Elevendy, known for their highly produced style, sharing their perspective of their artificially-lit world.
The variety in our panel played out nicely when we switched gears to critique some of the work you all contributed. From cropping to composition to lighting, and even wardrobe selection, these guys offered expert advice on the work of a few lucky viewers. Colby even opened up his work humbly for critique by the others.
See what they had to say! Thanks to Keith Barrett, who streamed the hangout live and made it available to view at the Vidcast network.
Thanks for contributing your questions, topic suggestions and images for critique, and thank you Colby, Dave, Wil, Elia, and Mihailo for joining us. And of course, Leo Laporte ROCKS, for opening the office to us. I look forward to the next session in the Brickhouse – get your questions ready :)!
