Luxury Horse Property Video Tour – Nederland, Colorado

This was a fun video to do this summer – The realtor wanted really minimal graphics, and just to show off the property with great video and vibes.  The home is located right between Nederland, Colorado and Estes Park, so I got some clips of each area. Day one, the sky was bluebird Colorado – the drone shots sweeping down from Longs Peak onto the property were perfect – could not have asked for better sky.  I visited the property on a 2nd day and it was raining so my time was limited behind the camera, but I still got…

How I Got Better and Faster at Color Grading Blackmagic Raw (BRAW) Footage

David Besnette I put together this video tutorial to show how I color grade my BRAW footage.   I quickly learned when I first purchased my BMPCC6K that color correction and color grading in BRAW (Blackmagic RAW) is not easy.     I go over the 5 steps that I have learned, and use to Color Correct, and Grade Raw Footage from my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 6K.

Here are the notes I put together when it all started this past spring – most of this is relevant again… Just a few notes on how I am (as of now, subject to change) approaching my Real Estate Photography shoots. Real Estate, in Colorado, is listed as an essential business, and the more realtors can use my 360 Tours, and Video Tours instead of hosting Open-Houses – the better off we will all be in flattening the curve with Covid-19. My Guidelines for Photography during Covid-19 IDEALLY…

HDR vs. Using Lights – Real Estate Photography

Many realtors really don’t see how much adding lights can affect the quality of a real estate photo, and how lights can produce results that HDR, or ambient-only light cannot, without an obscene amount of post-processing – and even then it’s not ideal. HDR vs Using Lights – Example 1 With Lights: Without Lights using HDR / Ambient Only: HDR vs Using Lights – Example 2 Here is a shot that I took using two lights.  I put one in the side closet on the right, just for a little accent, and one to light the room.  The window had…
