Whilst on location at Hereford’s Livestock Market, Roman Road, the ‘Chewing the Cud’ team and I conducted several interviews with auctioneers and woman involved. Throughout the entirety of the session I contributed towards filming as camera operator. Using the Panasonic AG AF101 with help from Rick Goldsmith, I learnt how to set a shot up and use the twinkle in the interviewee’s eye as a reference point when focusing. I believe these skills will be beneficial when working more independently. Swapping between the micro-four third lenses, Panasonic 20mm pancake lens at f1.8 (wide lens), 45mm Olympus lens at f1.7 (portraiture lens) and a Panasonic 14-140mm (zoom lens for tracking and wide shots) we managed to capture a beautiful variety of shots. When interviewing a three point lighting system was used to enhance the interviewees’ complexion, this included a 2K light with LED 300V lights. Taking advantage of natural light we captured an interview with a lovely background of golden sunlight which was projected through the blue/grey cattle shed. When filming our super sensitive sennheiser microphone picked up a lot of noise interference from a helicopter and the firing range which posed a problem. Unfortunately there was nothing we could do but wait. Yet again I was lucky enough to have another amazing experience while working with more like minded individuals.
