Sorry I've Been Gone...

As the video below will explain, I’m not having the best luck ordering my new camera lol. I explain everything in detail in the video so be sure to give it a watch long story short I will never be ordering a camera from Amazon ever again.

Yeah so I placed the order for the GH5s and got next day shipping, two days later the order still hadn’t shipped so I was told to cancel it and order it again. I did that and the same thing happened and the order was delayed but it did eventually end up getting shipped to which I opened it and discovered they had sent me the GH5 and not the GH5s. There is a pretty big difference between the two so I wasn’t very happy to say the least lol. I hope you guys enjoyed this video I got some shoots coming up this weekend so stay on the lookout for some behind the scenes stuff!

I’ll also be in Detroit to shoot a music video on the 23rd so I’ll probably make a vlog type video for that so you guys can see what it’s like to travel and shoot with some BTS. Situations like this can definitely get you down but it is what it is so the best thing to do is to just move forward and deal with it sh*t happens and sometimes there’s nothing you can do. Keep creating I”ll catch you guys again soon!

BTS Dropped!

BTS Vid Just Dropped!

Yoooo the BTS video I’ve been promising is finally here! In this video I go in depth on 2 shoots I had the opportunity to be apart of and talk about gear, lighting, ways to connect, and what it’s like to be on a bigger production set.

I plan on doing a lot more stuff like this in the future because I think it would be cool for you guys to see how some shoots go down and to be apart of the process. Let me know what you think of the site makeover down in the comments too! God Media is going to be focused a lot more on the hip hop scene in Ohio so if you’re looking for new artists and for things to do in the city, you can come here and it’ll be a one-stop shop. There will also be a new artist spotlight up later today so stay tuned for that as well!

Behind The Scenes

Behind The Scenes

Yooo what’s goin’ on guys I hope life is going great I know I’ve been absent for a minute but I’m back and I wanted to share a behind the scenes kind of blog with you guys! A couple of weeks ago I made a trip down to Columbus to get some behind the scenes shots of the shoot that was going on. We were shooting a commercial for a gym down there and the director Koishi Kahmmad wanted to send the final product to some connects in the NFL. Long story short this video needed to look fucking good, luckily there was a really talented crew there working their asses off and shooting til 5 or 6 in the morning.

We were shooting with some big boy cameras lol, one was a RED Scarlet and the Main cam was a RED Scarlet. In the pic above you can see we were havin’ a little fun with a Benro motorized slider that was on set. A lot of the shots were done on a gimbal with the Helium. We were lighting the set using Astera lights I think they were the pixel tubes but i’m not 100% sure on that. They were some dope RGB lights though and you’re able to control the color and patterns of the light via an app and they’re wireless so you can stick them anywhere.

It was awesome being able to be on set with these guys and see how they work and collab on different aspects of the video. The more minds you have working on a project the better because you’re going to be working with a lot more creativity while you’re on set. I’m going to try and get out some more bts content for you guys let me know what you think of this kind of stuff in the comments! Overall this was a sick shoot and I do plan on having a BTS video to go along with this I’m hoping to have it done by tonight in order to get some content out for you guys.

New Studio!

Yo yooo I just got done setting up a studio space yesterday so if you’ve been wanting or need a studio space to shoot at feel free to hit me up and let’s make it happen!

just need to iron that backdrop lol

just need to iron that backdrop lol

It’s a small but effective space. I have both of my computers in here, my desktop for editing, and my laptop for editing photos. Two Quasar Science led’s are what I’m using to light my subject and the backdrop. I’m still workin on giving the room an overall vibe but it’s gettin there lol. I want to setup an xbox in there and just get some more art on the wall maybe some more RGB lighting to round it out. I waited all day for the stuff to be delivered so I could get it all setup asap.

Me and my wife went ahead and did a quick photoshoot so you guys can see some pics that were taken using this setup below!

This shoot also gave me a chance to try out a new lens that I got a few days ago which is the sigma 18-35 f1.8 which is the perfect range for this setup I’ve found. I plan on discounting shoots if they’re shot here at my studio so get a hold of me if you want to work!
