okay sweetest video ever! tears in my eyes at the beginning with henry crawling! so sweet!! i need you to give me a video tutorial! (filming and editing!)
@elise - you're so sweet. I'm an ametuer with video. These video clips were all with my DSLR camera - the quality is a million times better than my usual iPhone videos. I use my 35mm prime lens always, hence the constant focus shifting that I'm still trying to master. Anyways, I've been trying to take better/creative videos. It's all still kinda new to me. Trying out different angles, perspectives, etc. and also I was really relaxed and just had camera handy and didn't have any expectations. I've found that i can catch more natural and authentic moments when I just in the moment with camera handy. Once the camera is out a bit, Pearce isn't has intimidated by it and goes about her normal self. As far as editing, I use iMovie on iMac. And I'm still just playing around with little transitions, clip trimmings, audio adjustments (quieting my icky voice!!) and you can also change video settings to black and white. It's fun (and at times frustrating) trying to figure everything out. I usually start out with a song that I have in mind first and add clips after. And really it's as simple as choosing song, and throwing in a few "trimmed" clips. Then shortening and tweaking. Email me if you ever have any questions about a specific edit.
Seriously, this is my most favorite video ever! I'm the luckiest daddy in the whole world!
Love love love this! Wish I was there! So fun to see Henry scooting around and Pearce is killing that balance bike! and I love her kicks :)
This totally made me so happy today. You REALLY really do have a gift with putting videos together with the perfect music and capturing such cute moments. I am wishing my camera had video capability on it! I love the phasing in and out of focus-- gives it a really arsty feel, and the first part of the video with Henz crawling with the sun flare around him.. just magical. captures so many emotions and he's not even my baby! hahaha. Such treasured memories. Love the angle and how you got down low. You are so creative. Anyway, just had to say I love it! And I watched it 3 times. Pearce's "tell a joke" face= too cute.
p.s. how cute that jeremy comments on your blog too. y'all are the cutest.
That is the SWEETEST!! Oh my! All of it!
you've got it all.
