I am fascinated by trends in color grading. 5 years ago it was the washed out yellows and purples. Today it's high contrast orange and blue/greens. One thing I am continuing to learn is that no matter the trend, good stories always make good movies. This is a modern color grade on an older shot. Am I cool yet?! http://buff.ly/2qjCpvw

A-typical framing doesn't mean you have to break every rule of composition. In this shot still holds true to the rule of thirds, while having a completely different perspective. http://buff.ly/2qfdsBm

The last time I shot this lighthouse I was working with a Phantom 2. How times have changed! I think I'll do it again this Memorial Day weekend and compare the footage. I love my lens replaced GoPro Hero 5 but I'm thinking the Mavic might have a few tricks up its sleeve. We'll see! http://buff.ly/2rJJQy0

Oh I forgot to mention, I pre-ordered this little guy from @smallhd. It ships in June and I'll post a full unboxing video and review on @makingmoviestv. Price and functionality are unparalleled if it delivers what it claims. I'm pumped!!! http://buff.ly/2rGd3tI

Finding inspiration can be hard. I find myself needing to unplug from everything just as much as I immerse myself in everything. Inspiration is everywhere and more often than not we just need to change HOW we see things and not necessarily WHAT we are seeing. Up north for the weekend refocusing. http://buff.ly/2rbccAX

Color grading matters. Just like everything in film, what you start with should never be what you finish with. Every piece needs to be worked and made into what it needs to be. A scene straight off the camera isn't an edit. Audio straight off the recorder isn't a mix. Footage straight off the hard drive isn't a color grade. Take the time to make your film shine! I love @luts LUTs. They make footage (especially true uncompressed log) sing! http://buff.ly/2q8bqpG
