1) Gathering – Photographs You Can Make
Make the photos. Not a photographer? Oh yeah? Android & Apple iPhones are great for their smart portrait effects. Film clips too. Grab a sunset snippet or photo of some birthday flowers, bubbly and flowers, a mail box save it on your ‘notes’ on your iPhone.
Edit in Adobe Spark. Go thru a short list of shots you like. Make sure the coolers vibe together. Mail boxes are my new fave thing to photograph. SO I included them to imply ‘rsvp’ u are being invited’
Also the type and font and graphics in adobe spark makes it super clear what you are sending people. Also Adobe’s ‘gifs’ are great for flowers, weddings, birthdays, all calendar holidays.
Add the elements together in Adobe Spark and start mixing.
Simple. The ‘Korbel’ engagement photo shoot in Key largo cost the couple $275 for 3 hours. I kept a few photos, because I knew the colour would work. And, Korbel even loved it so much they shared on their Instagram account.
Then I found the mail box during a recent real estate photo shoot and film production. I mean who does not like antiqued copper with that oxidised look. It was the perfect background to put bright flowers onto to send the message.
Finally the wedding veil – tangle! I was a, not very good, second shooter at a wedding at Playa Largo, Key Largo. Improved quite a bit since then, I hope. But you can make your own, grab a gauzy piece of material and have a friend or sibling be the ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ This shot also looks fabulous in the middle of a busy road, city or at the mall. Get close up. Make sure you have light. How could you not use that? So. There you have it. Do it simple.

WHY MY STORY IS A GOOD ONE TO KNOW?
You are not going to get smooth talk. Filming can be really ugly. Because you sometimes – mostly – don’t know what you are going to get. And it’s all set. The tech. But you just don’t know.
Why do this blog about film making?
- Because even tho life has been lived poorly or well by billions of others, before us, that is no reason for you to simply follow along. Just because they know that ‘already,’ there is still more you can discover yourself. More experiences that are new for you, personally, to learn.
- Pick up a film camera and start recording. Then edit the footage. You can fly so high. There is no limit.
- The adventure of learning and really feeling the pain, the joy, the ups and downs, these are so important for yourself.
- Film making is a whole world..it is story. And to unlock the mystery is a great journey. Like re-inventing the wheel. I believe it is a necessary pathway for all humanity. Re-learning what many already know. But doing it yourself.
- We have been there. We have seen alot. But now it’s your turn. If you want to hear how it was for me – read my story and learn.
- Then go do it yourself.
- Because it will help you grow to know there are other idiots out there with microphones, lights and smart phones or dslr’s monitors and other somewhat expensive equipment who don’t know what they were doing in the beginning.
