Videographer gets an eye-full at the portland zoo. Disturbing but an amazing catch, nonetheless.

Videographer reveals dancing fluid as art … finding the extraordinary in the ordinary (ordinary, so long as ferrofluid is a household name for you).
Dancing Fluids Look Like A Work Of Art
Fluids that dance in such a way that it leaves you completely hypnotized, especially set to beautiful music.
Like a music video for the scientifically minded, the short film below explores the unusual world of ferrofluid, a liquid which acts a lot like a gelatinous magnet. The second installment in an ongoing series of experiments, the film was made by Singapore based photographer/videographer Afiq Omar, who edited it with a distinctly dark and rhythmic style that’s as intriguing as it is creepy. Omar’s goal was to create something using ‘analog’ effects, so what you see here uses few modifications after shooting, showing the utter weirdness of his subject material and his talent as a videographer.
This videographer and producer shares a video he produced for teens4good, a Philadelphia-based group that works to convert vacant lots into urban gardens.
My lil brother
I have worked as a freelance videographer and producer for 4 years, filming and producing promotional and educational pieces for Los Quinchos and the Chicheli Project in Nicaragua, UNIFAT School in Northern Uganda, Bridges to community based out of New York, and The Federation of Neighborhood Centers in Philadelphia. In addition I have taught basic video classes for youth at Los Quinchos and supported students through the process of documentary production at the Brown Ledge Gap Year.
HDR Video Example
The ability to record video in high dynamic range opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to post-production. With all the detailed highlight and shadow information…. beautifully detailed videos can be achieved under any lighting condition. This sample video is great, and just begins to touch on what’s possible with HDR video in post-production.
Just gotta pick up a beam splitter and I’ll be on my way.

HD video through the lens of a DSLR - The Journey Begins
As a professional videographer and photographer in Portland, Oregon, and someone who already owns two DSLR cameras and a plethora of lenses… the benefits of going HD via DSLR are obvious.
In addition to the obvious cost and size factors, SLR’s low depth of field ability and all the focal lengths you could dream of are major reasons to shoot HD video with a DSLR.
Today, in my first Tumblr post ever, I pose this question:
How do I produce professional quality high definition videos with my digital SLR camera?
I know Canon + DSLR = happy HD videographer, but … my grandpa gave me my first camera decades ago; it was a Nikkormat (that’s right - pre Nikon). Every camera and lens I own is Nikon including two fairly new cameras that both shoot HD video.
The fact that most (if not all) Nikon DLSRs have no audio input ports poses a significant challenge for professional videographers looking to move from SD to HD without shelling out big bucks for a new HD video camera or downgrading to a consumer-level HD camera.
According to PF Bentley, it’s not that difficult. While learning from PF directly is priceless (I speak from experience), I didn’t have to dig long to find just the gear list I was looking for. (Thanks, PF!)
I first asked this question more than a year ago; and while I’m well on my way to answering it … I hope sharing my experience on this site will motivate me to not just answer the question, but also to test it for myself and post my results here. Let the fun begin!
