What I've been up to lately...

Ayee hope y’all are doin’ good it’s been a minute since I’ve written a blog so I wanted to update you guys on what I’ve been up to as of late! First off if you haven’t seen my IG stories I got the chance to shoot with Adi Rei from Nvasion Records. Super dope artist to be able to link with he brought good vibes and energy on set and we killed it. We had a lot of things going on with 3 different set designs to shoot in the studio and a scene on top of a parking garage at golden hour and everything turned out really well. We pulled off the vibe we were going for with a high energetic, fun visual with bright blues and oranges to compliment the mood. Pre-Production was a b*tch it took me hours to build the stuff you see in the video lol.

Check out the screenshots below to see the kind of sets we built and and the overall vibe we were aimin’ for. This shoot was a blast hopefully you guys get to see more visuals from us on the future.

The following weekend I had another shoot with an artist named Congrez up in Cleveland just a little more on the west side this time. Congrez is also the CEO of Avalanche Records. This song included several other artists from the label including but not limited to, BamFranx, Jiggy Ju, and Tilla Duula. This visual was made with the idea of just making it look really f**king cool lol. It’s a flex track no doubt so we wanted a vibe that would represent that which ended up with some cool set design ideas that you guys can check out below.

Shooting with the Nuw4ve Crew

Shooting with these 3 was a blast. The first location we went to was a pink abandoned trap house near the west side. It was really cloudy (which I love fr) and the light was super soft which made for some amazing photos. We did a small photoshoot here before we went on to shoot a video to a single off of their latest proect .WAV called “Live”. Me and Chanze met months ago talking about linking up and I’m glad it finally happened. I really tried to push myself on this video and try new things and i think overall I’m pretty satisfied, as always there are things that maybe I didn’t think of or whatever but that' just turns into a learning experience then.

Live

We really tried to tell a story in this video and I made decisions creatively that ended up prolonging the shoot, but it was worth it. It’s always worth it to take your time and make sure you get it right.

The video is really hype with eerie vibes. I used more effects in this video than I usually do just because I thought it would benefit the video and I wanted to see what effects I could come up with on my own, and it was super f***ing fun. We had a character get robbed at one point and so I also shot my second action sequence ever I can’t wait for you guys to see it! I also experimented a lot with the audio during that scene (the music cuts out). I love trying new things and I think you can tell I did that in this shoot.

These photos are definitely a personal favorite of mine I love the pink color palette we used as well as the style that these guys had. As far as camera gear goes I use a Panasonic GH4 and I had a 20mm f1.7 and a 30mm f1.4 on me. I tried to use the environment as much as possible to help me in creating depth and an interesting composition. I like putting different things in the foreground such as leaves or glass, etc. to frame my subject. I think it just draws your eyes where they need to be in a more interesting way.s
