Behind the scenes
Another new client!
We were pleased to get the call to film and photograph this event for the Hay Group at the Fishmongers Hall in London bridge.

This was also the first professional outing for the Canon 5DMKIII which showed off its low noise at high iso’s up to 5000 when used with the 100 -400mm is lens wide open at f5.6 as the master close up shot.
The almost 30mins recording time and audio monitoring were an additional help over the MKII.

Tip: If you’re shooting with a 5DMKIII, make sure you turn your image sharpness all the way off in your camera profile and add sharpening in post when color grading, this is not the case for the 5DMKII but makes a huge difference with the MKIII, thanks goes to Philip Bloom for sharing his finding on this matter.

We always prefer to film our multi camera angle interviews in a quiet room and in this case we requested and set up the lights in a private room in the morning and after the 5hr event we filmed interviews with delegates and speakers.
One such clip can be viewed above.

By contrast you can also find us in the middle of a busy networking session or at an outdoors event in the thick of it with a handheld wireless microphone.
