Set Stills


This past Monday I was invited to come watch and learn a little something about being a director of photography. Being a photographer, I've always been interested in the moving image as well as photographic stills, but have never really tried my hand with video except to combine multiple stills into action, (similar to animation). Anyhow, my old friend Gregg Conde (from my SJSU days) is working as a Director of Photography in New York.  He suggested I come watch and see what being on film shoots is all about. He was DP-ing on Columbia University film project cleverly titled 'Flappy Hands' with Bobby Poole Directing and Jasmine Rivera as the Associate Director. Gregg showed me a thing or two about the amazing Sony Ex3 with a very fancy/ expensive lens adaptor using Zeiss primes lens.  That camera was amazing to say the least. Watching the shots Gregg was getting through the satellite monitor was so much fun, I couldn't help but shoot what they were shooting! 

It was so great to watch the crew interact with one another on a set where there were so many shoes to be filled. I helped out when I could, but for the most part I hung back and observed, and stole snacks from the craft service table ;). The above are some of my shots from the day. Gotta say, although it was incredibly long day, there is nothing like the energy on a set! Love it!

Brooklyn, NY
Welcome to my blog! Here you will find a potpourri of images from my personal and professional life. It should be said, I rarely turn down an opportunity to shoot whether it be a wedding or just a good idea for a portrait for a friend or colleague. On planned photo adventures I most likely have my 5D at my side rockin' my 50mm lens (my fav!), but at the very least I've always got my trusty iPhone with it's arsenal of apps (who says you need 21 mega-pixels to make great images?!). So please, scroll and click around. I hope you enjoy looking at my images as much I as I enjoy making them! If you'd like to contact me about a wedding or event, or if you'd just like to say hi, please don't hesitate to drop me a line at katie@katieosgood.com. Thanks!
