Shooting DSLR without a tripod

{/literal}{include file="blk:davemorrisblog_header"}{literal}

The above video was shot with a Canon 7D DSLR and no tripod. I had a tripod with me, but decided to attempt an entire shoot without the tripod. Not saying it was smart. Didn’t have a Zacuto rig or other DSLR device – just the neck strap and some slightly steady hands. The lighting was another challenge. I didn’t use the umbrella light I had with me, and actually missed that more than the tripod. But with the DSLR footage you can recapture so much in post production. During the edit in Final Cut Pro, I upped the saturation and white levels. The overall levels I tweaked down to around 90 or 95.
