Well, it’s high time I blow the cobwebs off this blog, and what better way to get restarted than with a cute baby video?
This is my son Owen in a music video made for Mother’s Day a little while back (as a present to both his Grandmas). As you can see, he’s a lively little feller, though he hasn’t quite mastered crawling or talking yet (not for want of trying).
I shot the video on my Sony NEX EA50, which is effectively a DSLR in a videocamera body, with the stock SELP18200 lens. You can get very nice shallow depth of field as long as you stay fully zoomed out.
Don’t forget to watch right to the end for the post-credits sequence!
