      LED lights for production have been around for a while, but the design of the Strahlen is a noticeable departure from your average 1x1 panel. On paper, the specs of these lights look great, but how well do they perform in a real production setting?

        In this video, I test out the new DryZone 20L bag from LowePro. It's designed for outdoor enthusiasts and photographers/videographers who like to play on the water, so I strapped it to my kayak and went through some small rapids. I eventually decide to capsize my boat and see if the inside stays dry or not.

            A musically-driven documentary depicting the scenery of Turkey and the experiences of students who spent 11 nights traveling across the country. My objective was to capture not just what the students saw, but also show them traveling and experiencing the country. Driven by music courtesy of Moby and Rendezvous Park. Shot on a Canon 7D and iPhone 4. Cut on FCP7.

              In May of 2009, students in a photography class at Washtenaw Community College embarked on a 10 day journey across Morocco. A simple collage of clips captured to document a group of students while on a trip to Morocco. This is a not a "professional" production, but rather a compilation of clips shot to test the capabilities of a Canon 5Dm2 DSLR system (pre-manual exposure). If you'd like to see some of my photos from the trip, take a look at the WCC flickr pool here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeydubz1/sets/72157618286175558/ The full-length video can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K1CTAivyeM Shot on a Canon 5Dm2 Pre-manual exposure 28-135mm 50mm 1.8 Edited in Final Cut Pro.
