This weekend I’ll be at Infineon Raceway shooting with Tam for Sonoma Drift’s Winter Jam 2011. This will be a pretty cool weekend as I get to test out my Nikon D7000 for filming. I’m a complete beginner when it comes to cinematography, but I love it.
To prepare myself for the upcoming weekend, I studied different styles of automotive filming, especially that of UK based automotive show Top Gear. Their ability to deliver cinematography is exceptional. From the panning shots, to the epic wide angle scenes, it’s all aesthetics to me.
That’s what I’m shooting for this weekend and also to bring a different flavor to our usual photo coverages. No worries for the photo enthusiast, as one of my best mates/co-photographers will be shooting alongside. Let’s see how the weekend unravels!
