Without preconceived knowledge in depth of what being the the United States Army truly meant, I joined. I didn’t know that I would be awake most hours of the day, what it meant to respect your processors and keep your mouth shut though you oppose your leaders ideas sometimes, how you can keep training though your body feels like breaking and you could fall asleep at any moment.
On Saturday, I shot set photographs for a music video which will be entered into a film competition. This specific contest is called a quick fire because we have 11 days in preproduction, production, and post production.
The morning of the shoot we met up at the Visalia Sports Park at 10:00 AM. My group arrived 15 minutes early and waited until the next car pulled up beside us. To everyone’s surprise, we had the same car-though different in year and colour- it sure did receive some chuckles.
Who wore it best?
After unloading the equipment, we walked down a dirt path and began setting up for the first scene.
While the actors got dressed, camera men put on the appropriate lenses.
Then the director showed everyone their positions.
And we were ready to shoot!
This journey helped to provide me with more experience in set photography and learning my settings. Choosing my camera settings is becoming more of an instinct, than something that I still have to take time to set.
