Speaking at WordCamp Miami – again

WordCamp MIA speaker Pascal Depuhl

I’m excited to be on of the speakers at WordCamp Miami (again). And –you guessed it– I’m speaking about video (again)! Last year I got to do a lighting talk called “Creating killer video for your blog” and this year it’s gonna be a little more in depth presentation.

If you run your blog on WordPress, this is the place for you to be! You can register on the WCMIA site, but do it now, since they always sell out.

CreativeMornings Miami: We’re great at humility!

In today’s world of Social Media, where everyone is clamoring for anyone’s attention, it seems counter intuitive to talk about humility. April’s CreativeMornings Miami (@miami_cm1) talk featured the 4 people behind The New Tropic (@NewTropicMiami) and the lessons they’ve learned about being humble – most of which come from Han Solo.

Creative Planet Network article: Cinematographer takes ioSafe rugged portable to extremes

Part of my workflow featured in Creative Planet Network

Movies by Depuhl featured in  Creative Planet Network (CPN): Cinematographer takes ioSafe HDs to extremes.A recent article in Creative Planet Network focused on my experiences with ioSafe rugged portable drives. These drives are perfect when I travel to the remote parts of the world and help me ensure that my still images and video footage make it back safely to civilization.

ioSafe rugged portables are water proof to 30 feet (10 m) of water, crush proof up to 5,000 pounds and won’t get hurt when you drop the drive that’s enclosed in a solid aluminum case from 10 feet (3.3 m). In addition to all that physical protection they come with a 5 year data recovery plan.

ioSafe rugged HD—always in my bag

If you run into me in the jungles of Peru or in the mountains of Afghanistan, you can be sure that I have a few of these puppies in my camera bag.

Here’s a few more tips on how to travel with your gear and I’ll also let you in on the little secret on how to save $1,000 when you fly with your gear.

Tips for shooting video

When Rosh Sillars (@RoshSillars) wrote his book Canon EOS T5i – Digital Field Guide and was looking for a still photographer that is an expert on shooting video on an DSLR, he turned to Pascal Depuhl a Miami based advertising and product photographer, who began shooting video a few years back.

Pascal had just returned from shooting his first documentary in Afghanistan a year before this publication. He shares from the lessons he learned shooting “On Wings of Hope” and the videos he has produced for his corporate clients.

DSLRs capture cinematic images …

… but their not really designed to shoot video. Anyone who has been shooting video with high end digital movie cameras, is always impressed by the image quality these small cameras deliver. Check out some of the basic issues you have to be aware of, when shooting with these type of cameras.
