New 4K camera

I recently purchased a second 4k camera. What this means for my customers is that you will now be able to choose several new options for your video. Probably the most exciting is the combined photography and video option, two for the price of one. I already offer the option to get free photos extracted from video, but with 4k video, the photos are very high quality, suitable for enlargements. It's like having a pro photographer there with your videographer, taking 30 photos every second. Look for these new options at the beginning of next year. Here are some regular photos taken with this camera; later I will post another blog with some examples of pictures taken directly from 4k video.

A Visit From the Kenyan Ambassador

I was there to capture video and photos when the Kenyan Ambassador came to give a speech to some Kenyans living in Hawaii. He is the tall one with the red tie.

A Wedding Reception at the Hale Koa Hotel

Sometimes a couple has gotten married elsewhere but holds a reception here in Hawaii for friends and family who couldn't be at the wedding. This was one of those occasions. I took pictures before the reception and after the main program, and video during. People very often choose my option of extracting stills from the video, and I did that this time. Can you tell which of these are regular pictures and which  are video stills? (Well, the different shapes give it away!)

A Samoan Memorial Service

The woman who had passed away was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, so, there was a lot of wonderful singing at this moving memorial service that lasted almost six hours. Here are a few stills from the video I recorded.

Two Days of Memorial Services

Memorial services are very sad occasions, but at the same time there is a positive healing element. And they can be an opportunity to visit with people you haven't see for a long time. This person who had passed away had obviously touched the lives of very many people. These are stills from the video I shot at the eulogy services, funeral mass, and burial.
