rokinonCool street footage
#Repost @179pictures with @repostapp
Riding shotgun with the POlice, getting some street footage, and also taking video selfies in the passenger mirror. Really though, the officer I was riding with was telling me some great stories, but felt a little uncomfortable whenever I turned the camera on him. I had him wear a wireless mic for the ride, and I knew I'd really only be using his audio as narration. So I just made myself look busy without turning the camera on him while he shared some great stuff. Tips of the trade...if someone is nervous to talk to your camera, don't force an interview. Set up some gear, or just look like you're getting ready to shoot. Stay engaged in some conversation, but don't force it on them. I find the best stuff comes before or after the actual interview. Keep your cameras/mics rolling. If they hesitantly ask if you're recording, tell a white lie and say no. Keep setting up and let them speak freely. Interview gold comes when people feel safe and relaxed. At the end of everything, come clean and ask if it's ok to use that story. No one has ever been mad at me. They just want to feel comfortable.
Sony a7sii, Rokinon 35mm T1.5.

- 179picturesThanks guys! Appreciate the shoutout. That 35mm 1.5 is my workhorse.
- nine24mediaLove my @rokinon 24mm & 35mm 1.5 👍🏽 - @179pictures great shot too
- 179picturesThanks @nine24media. I've had my eye on the 24. I'm between that and the Sigma 24-35 right now. Always a decision of where to spend your next $500.
