I wanted to reply to a viewer email to “Ask Will” about shooting location “talking heads” style portrait video clips for clients. The 5D m2 and m3 are known as the reference standard for this kind of shooting, but they present their own set of limitations.
Would mirrorless work as good, faster, easier, less expensively? Here’s my take on which way he would go and why.
Will Crockett, commercial hybrid photographer, photo technology developer, and webTV personality is focused on learning how to master hybrid imaging. The skillful blend of photo+video+audio is clearly the future of photography, but how do we shoot and shape and share and sell these hybrid "eProducts"? Dunno, but with Will Crockett as the technical genius and unstoppable force behind this transition from shooting still photos into creating pictures with depth and dimension we will surely figure it out! : )
Will is an open, honest, bright guy that shares what he learns here on this website about hybrid, eProducts, mirrorless cameras, and all the wonderful software tools that allow us to make better, smarter images for share or the sell.
For years, non-pro photographers and pros alike have seen Will's videos, gone to his fun live events, and learned how to be a smarter photographer.
Take a look at Will's current (and classic) images at willcrockett.pro, his consulting work for clients big and small at CrockettCo.com, and the great info on hybrid eProducts and mirrorless cameras on hybridphoto.pro, and of course his premium videos at thephotochannel.pro.
Will is credited with the construction of the Lumix Luminary talent team, and the Fujifilm Elite Talent team, and is our "coach" of the Hybrid Heroes.
