How to set your Shutter Speed to the Frame Rate Chart

April 23, 2019 / Education
READ MORE

In order to get the “cinematic look” you want to shoot at the ideal shutter speed.
The ideal shutter speed should be twice the frame rate.

Sometimes you won’t be able to do so.
You can select the shutter speed when divisible by the frame rate will give you a whole number. (For simplicity sake, 1/100 is referred to as 100)

For Example:
(ie: 100 (shutter speed)
÷ 25 (frame rate) = 4) <- YAY!
(ie: 320 (shutter speed) ÷ 25 (frame rate) = 12.8) <- BAD!

In bright situations, when using an ND filter, ideally you should get the shutter speed to as close as possible to the ideal shutter speed.

Dunseverick Castle Vow Renewal in Northern Ireland

Dunseverick Castle Vow Renewal in Northern Ireland

April 8, 2019 / Destination
READ MORE

When I was 14, the boy I liked asked me, “If I could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?” And without hesitation I answered, Ireland!!!

And he smiled and said, “Cool. I’m gonna take you there someday.”

Ten years later. This happened! This was quite a trip of a lifetime. In their vows they wrote…

“So here’s to 10 years of you having my heart and almost five years of me having your last name. Gabriel, our life is crazier than I ever imagined but far better than we ever planned.

I’m so glad it’s you. And it’s always been you.”

Thanks to Faran (youandmefotografie.com/) for making this possible!
