2012 Kick-Off Party
an amazing camera!
we started off our year with a bang!
Thanks so much to
Guenter Noesner from Arriflex who showed us (& let us TOUCH!) their
amazing Alexa camera.
This is the camera
that has become the go-to camera for over 100 TV shows (including
Downton Abbey) and many features (including Hugo)
of the cool features is that each camera has a unique serial number
which is embedded in the footage so you can tell which individual
camera shot a particular piece of footage (good if it's ever stolen!)
it was another great meeting enjoyed by all who attended......this
camera is what dreams are made of :-)

a fantastic overview of this year's NAB!
Schubin from SchubinCafe.com has been going to
NAB for over 35 years!

were there...or what we missed by not being there!
Landau, our illustrious President, also told us about what he saw in
terms of the industry's direction.
so much to the staff of the Apple Retail Store in
for a great intro to some amazing products.
to Peter Becker who talked to us about Garage Band (& gave us great
food advice! :-)
Bamber took us one step up to Logic and how to interface with the iPad,
and then Dave
Petersen blew our minds with what iMovie and FinalCut X can do.
really can be manipulated to look amazing!

new Canon C300
SO much to Canon & the Staff at ZGC for coming out &
showing us the latest Canon C300 camera.
who were present were thrilled to be able to actually pick it up, a
"play" with it (gently! ;-) and see how amazing it is in low light
& different conditions.
Liz: "Can we turn the lights up yet?"
Howl from the boys & their toys:
was a great evening!
|Put 'em in the Best Light!
Dave Landau, President of our North Jersey chapter gave a wonderful
presentation all about the nuts & bolts of lighting people
correctly for the effect you want.
Check out Dave's
We learned about:
- how lighting can make someone look more honest
(or less so like Marlon Brando in "The Godfather")
- how you should always use soft light on women
- the various forms of light & how to use
- about Diffusion....nose shadows..and that yes,
size matters when you are bouncing light off a wall!
- how lighting one person is different from
lighting two people which is different from lighting inanimate objects
- we also learned about the "3 B's" that are
hardest to light*
All in all it was a fabulous presentation by a real pro.

Bags under eyes :-)

TON of talented people as members & friends!
