    Some shots from my day job. Today we were shooting a John Deere piece, using one of my favorite pieces of film gear....the jib. This bad boy features a remote controlled head that can pan, tilt, zoom and focus the camera. I can also adjust aperture as well.

    Enjoy!

    We even had our own "uncle Bob". Damn still photographers always getting up in my grill! :big grin:

    is that a big stick you have, or do you just have a boner?


    using the jib is fun.. I've assisted a guy on two shoots in the past month where we used that A LOT. One music video and one go kart driver

    No, the footage is for trade shows, etc. I've done shows for Discovery Health channel, PBS, MTV etc but not commercials.
