Went to Monster-Con 2016 with my daughter this year. Had a blast. I wanted to go see the Zombie Pinup content but sadly it was canceled. We did stick around to see all of the people in their costumes (lots of clowns) and since Emmy wanted to take pictures, I lent her my Nikon D7000 and I took my Sony A6000 but shot video instead on my stabilizer. First time doing that but look at the video below:

I’ll post more pics from Emmy once she goes through them, but again, we had a blast.

Elizabeth bought some new living and dining room furniture. We gave our old stuff to family that could use it and I decided to do a timelapse up from the entertainment center. 204 photos later and you get this.

 

Here are pics of our new furniture. Me like.

Neewer Camera Rig test

by on Jun.13, 2016, under Creativity, Photography, Sony A6000, Video

Neewer_Camera_Rig-0001On my last day of vacation I decided to put together the camera rig I bought. It allows me to mount my DSLR to this shoulder mounted rig and add stuff like an external monitor and other stuff. Plus, it allows for a more stable shot when I’m in video mode. My Sony A6000 is dwarfed by this rig but it feels functional.

Replaced my GoPro lens 5-8-16

Finally got around to replacing my GoPro lens on my Hero3+. If you don’t remember, I managed to scratch it while using it to film from a RC car. See post here.

I tried to buff out the scratch using some very ultra fine sandpaper (3000 grit), followed by some toothpaste and finally cleaned it up with come alcohol but no joy. I ended up getting some JJ Abrams lens flares so I jumped online and purchased a replacement lens. Only $20.

Below are the before and after photos (after I replaced the lens) and then below that are the galleries.

Below are the repair pics if you want to view. Wasn’t as hard as I thought. First removed lens ring, unscrewed lens, removed gasket, then unscrewed lens. After replacing the lens, I had to hook it up to my TV and focus the lens. Once I did that, I snapped the lens ring back on and we’re back in business.

DIY Clappers

So, we’re gonna start shooting a movie soon and we don’t really need a big slate, but we do need a consistent “clap” in order to sync camera and external microphone audio in post.

Clapperclapper-sticks

Basically you need a sharp clap but not the big clapper. I could buy one but those suckers are about $45! Just for the arms!

So I made one for about $8.
