First time filming with Canon 5D Mark III (Canon 50mm f/1.4)

Technically, if you know how to take photographs in manual mode, you know how to film videos. Here’s the first ever video clip that I filmed and edited – all by myself! Well, almost.. Hubby helped me to get started with Adobe Premiere Pro :) (In the video, you will see him diligently painting primer on our garden swing bench.)

When you shoot photos in RAW, you can tweak white balance and luminance very easily in Lightroom. I haven’t learned how to do that in Premiere Pro yet – that’s why the greens are a little neon in direct sunlight!

I enjoyed this little experiment and will certainly shoot more video from now on.
