Video Set-up interviews

1 Comment

On Friday June 21st I recorded interviews for folks at the newly founded Veterans Community Media Center in San Francisco. This was the first time I used a DSLR to record interviews. Since the Canon Rebel T3i does not have a headphone jack, I used an small portable audio mixer, and used it to monitor the audio. I used a wireless lavaliere and then used a special 1/4 to 1/8 cable to feed into the camera.
Some of the objects you see on the set were used as props.





Photographed Muni Street Car vs Muni Bus Collision


At approx. 11:30am an East bound San Francisco MTA street car rear ended an East bound Muni bus. At least a dozen injured including children.
I arrived on scene approx. 9 minutes after the collision occurred.



Coverage of Breaking News

My coverage of breaking news rivals that of any reporter from any news channel in the San Francisco Bay Area. I spotted the event, it took me under 30 seconds to figure out who the driver was, whether he was injured, and how traffic was affected. And it took me less than a minute to get all the photos I needed.
