About a year ago, I had the chance to borrow this awesome bike and take it for a spin, I never really did anything with the footage, so I figured now that I have a lot of free time I use it to work on improving some of my editing skills. The bike is a red Ducati Evo 848, the gear I borrowed along with the bike came with a Gopro Hero 5 on top of the helmet which is what captured the trip around my town; Watsonville, and its surrounding beaches and back-roads. The song was playing on the background when I brought back the footage to look at it, and I said to myself how I missed that and I wanted to experience something like that again, so the lyrics and the song came together pretty nicely. So, in memory of one of the great days of my life… 🙂
I happened to be cleaning some of the drives I have and got myself looking at some old footage when I was doing some photo sessions and then as I had my music going the song Days go by started playing, and then I just had to do a video, it just felt right. With a big smile on my face as I was reminiscing those days and then getting myself to compare the mentality, the style, everything about my artistic self and persona from then and now. It’s always nice getting the opportunity to see how much you have grown or changed.
Thinking back on those days I think I might have been a bit more egotistic and thought I knew everything about photography, 5 years later I now feel there is so much more I could learn and so many things I still have left to experience and do, Photography is one of those paths that never ends and always leads you to something better.
I’ve been using my Hero 3 on the bike but I thought the footage and angles were not good enough so I decided to get me one more GoPro (or two) and test the footage in the GoPro app as well and see how it turned out. Somehow doing everything from the phone without using the computer felt less tedious. Even though, its way easier using the editing program but it still does a good enough job where you can be satisfied and proud with the results.
Forgive me if I am crying
Neither you, nor I is to blame
Sadness doesn’t bring joy
and Depression is not a game.
I didn’t choose this unbalance
I shouldn’t have to explain.
In that bath tub you see the bubbles
I see my bloodstain
I’ve opened up my heart to you
and you call my explanation ‘lame’
that problem you’re having
I easily overcame, and that’s how
I strong and successful became.
I live with Depression
and depression lives in your brain.
Please don’t punish me…
don’t add gasoline to the flame.

Trying out new things in my artistic and expressive self. I liked the last challenge and thought it would be nice if I converted it into a small video.
After a year now of working with Jennifer and her studio Perfect Union
I’ve put together a video showing some of the classes she has offered and the workout that goes with them.
Besides playing Minecraft, I have also been doing some lego recording with my kids. Right before ending the day we started joking around again, so I got the camera out and captured the fun…
As I continue to work on Perfect Union’s website www.perfectunion.co and help Jennifer create the best image possible for her business, I had a moment to just sit and talk to her about her studio, what she offers, why, and who she’s trying to reach. I found her responses very strong and personal. It is very noticeable that she cares for people and their health/nutrition.
after working with Jennifer from Perfect union we decided to do a little how-to video on some exercises one can do at home. Here’s the first of couple wee did.
