When we're first starting out, it's easy to use the same lens over and over again. But putting story first means catering every choice you make to your story and your shoot, and that means picking the lens that works best.
Here we share five of our favorite Canon lenses with you, and some of the discoveries we've made about them over the years.
here it is, a long journey that began with a crazy proposal to Canon well over 8 months ago, culminating in a almost a month living on a bus, touring the country, and meeting some amazing people along the way. our last tutorial is an introduction to stabilizers for EOS cameras. it covers our hands down favorite too, the monopod (answering the most commonly asked question and some tips and tricks), our take on sliders (the atlas LTS 30 by cinevate featured here), as well as a breakdown on stabilizers (featuring the steadicam merlin). i hope you enjoyed the series of tutorials, stay tuned for what's in store in 2011.
for those of you in the paris area, come and see us on the 14th for an all day seminar on storytelling in both photo and cinema. more info on our education blog stillmotionblog.com/author/education
