Baking with FroKnowsPhoto - 4 Camera Video Shoot

This video I would call more of an experiment to see if I could set up 4 different cameras and create a baking video. No one was around to help me do this so I hatched the concept and did all the set up myself.

There is a lot you can take away from a video like this. Like with still photography you still have to conceive a concept, light it, set up the cameras and shoot it. Photo and video go hand and hand these days and thats why its important that we embrace it. Like I always say, the best way to learn something is by doing.

The four cameras were the Nikon D7000, Nikon D3s, Nikon D3100 and the Contour action cameras. Each one of these cameras has a different film length from 5 min to however much room or battery life the contour cam has.

Now that our cameras allow us to capture HD video I am a big proponent of learning as much as I can about shooting video not just with one camera but with multiple cameras. When you shoot with so many cameras you end up with a lot of gigs of video to edit.

Unlike still photography where editing can not always save an image, editing for video can really make something out of nothing. Ari did a fantastic job of editing this video as its not the easiest thing to do when you have four angles to work with.
