Old dog, New Tricks

Well, I was feeling a little bored this afternoon, something which we all know can sometimes lead to trouble.. And it did... Aaaaactually, not really. What it led to was the re-editing of old photoshoots. Some of you might remember the clean and simple v-dub post a few months back, right?? Well, in all honesty I really did slack on that shoot when it came to editing. So with all this free time I happen to have now, I decided to load them back onto my comp and go to town!!! Here's what I came up with and to be honest, I'm very happy with the results!!

Having Some Fun with Photoshop

Lately I've been experimenting quite a bit with all my software, really just trying to discover what I can get out of them. For a long time I have wanted to try giving my photos a cinematic look with CC, but also adding letter box bars to kinda give it that extra "oomph". Well today, I finally figured out how to do the bars and how to add and blend logos, so here is what I came up with!!

On a side note, this shoe was actually there in the woods. Why? I really don't have a clue!

A Day Riding

It's video time folks.... or more like finally catching up on work time. I shot this quite a few months ago, but no matter which way I tried to go about cutting it I was just not satisfied. A few days back I sat down determined to find a proper track to use and after some time I found one and decided to give it another go. I will say it's on the short side, but then again I guess that has been a common theme for me this year<< Note to self make longer vids from now on!! Not too worry though because my friends and I are planning an actual riding film but since summer is long gone its gonna have to wait.... and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Enough with the blah blah blah here is a short clip of one day out on the boat riding!
