A Wedding Trailer Filmed at the Royal Regency Hotel
(Training Session produced by Marvin Suarez Films & True Love Wedding)

If you don’t already know, I’ve been a Wedding Cinematographer/Photographer for the past 8 years. I’ve slowly been honing my craft always trying to film the perfect wedding. I love the challenge that comes from putting together a large team and shooting something that I only have one shot at. There is no margin for error in this line of work! This past Saturday I held a workshop on wedding cinematography for my team. The reason I did this is so they can shoot like me; everyone on my team is very talented but it’s a pain when I get footage from my team and it looks nothing like mine so I took a stand and decided that I’ll have to just show them exactly how to shoot the way I do. The week prior I had a classroom training session which covered basic DSLR filmmaking techniques. This past weekend we were at the Royal Regency Hotel in Yonkers and there I showed my team how to use the cameras and lights in a simulated setting with 2 models, both a bride (Krista Jamison) and groom (Jose Fernando). I covered every part of the day from the bride getting ready to reception coverage. It was a fun day and learned a lot myself.

Filmed with 5D MK2,3 , 50mm 1.2, 135mm 2.0, 24-105 4.0 , Leica 21mm 4.0

5th Ave Girl Central Park Fashion Shoot
A behind the scenes look at a photo shoot I shot in New York City’s Central Park. Lovely Model Angela Caba plays as 5th Ave girl. We didn’t have much time for the shoot, about 3 hours but we got lots done, weather was nice and got some beautiful shots.

Gear used:
I used mostly long lenses for this shoot..I use mostly L Glass, and believe me that using good glass makes all the difference in the world, the contrast the L glass and Zeiss offer is something the you just can’t achieve with cheaper lenses. I uses a 135mm 2.0L which is my favorite Canon lens..It’s cost around $800 and the quality is some of the best I’ve ever seen…the reason I use that lens is due the nice Bokah that it’s very clean and colors are very Zeiss like. The next lens that I used was the Zeiss 50mm 1.4 and what’s cool about that lens is the wide angle I get..on the GH2 I used the Canon 35mm 1.4L..since the gh2 is a micro 4/3rd camera, it’s cropped by 2x which means a 35mm is really a 70mm, with that glass and the gh2 hack, the quality and colors are simply amazing, I’m not kidding, when I saw the final video it looked better than the canon footage by far. I recently purchased the Canon 24-105mm 4.0L and used it on my glide cam, since it has image stabilizer i zoom in to around 70-80mm and the image while moving looks stunning that distance.

I used Canon 5D MK2 & FujiX100 as photo cameras, 7D on the Glidecam, and a Hacked Panasonic GH2 with the Apocalypse Now Hack mounted on a monopod. I love the colors the Panasonic GH2 and Fuji X100 Produced..Love that punchy look! Had very little help as far as camera crew..shot 99% of the footage. Very hard to do both photo and video in the same shoot but I managed to pull it off. Love these fashion shoots..lots of fun..expect to see a lot more of these!
