Fishing and some thoughts about minimalist video📽🎣
Owen wants to know if he’s a great “fisher😂” He did catch five to Evan’s two, so maybe it’s true!
One of my #lifegoals is to be a minimalist whenever possible. I think people throw those words around in shades - on a spectrum of strategies and various levels of commitment. I want to say that being minimalistic is problematic for photographers, but probably not any more for us than for anyone else in a specialized field.
I’m planning to get deeper into this topic as a whole some other time. For now, I want to share one aspect of my workflow that has me reconsidering how I make video on the go.
Paired with the DJI Osmo Pocket, LumaFusion is an unbeatable tool for editing and producing video on the go with a small footprint.
I can import from my camera roll or even connect Dropbox (and other services) and import media from the cloud. Creating a timeline with exactly the right settings is easy, too.
Adjusting levels and manipulating color for a desirable grade is also very intuitive and the files from the Osmo Pocket really hold up well.
Landscape mode makes it easy to access retime controls as well as other effects. You can even add layered effects for more flexibility.
LumaFusion will automatically write the video file and upload it to your favorite platform or sharing service. It even lets you customize the render settings in case you’re trying to save space or bandwidth, or reaching for that extra level of quality.
So, next time you want to travel light without bringing a laptop to edit video, maybe consider LumaFusion as a great option. I’m already excited about the flexibility and freedom afforded by this professional app because it means video is possible where it wasn’t before. Best of all, I can create on a timetable that isn’t limited to when I have access to my laptop or desktop at the studio.
