Music Video: Roccwell feat. Born Unique & DJ Case

I recently produced a music video out of some stills for a song by ROCCWELL feat. BORN UNIQUE & DJ CASE. We added a lot of distractions and even a handmade analog VHS effect to fit the mood of this boombap song. I hope you like it. Please like and share this song to support ROCCWELL & BORN UNIQUE!




Official press release:
"After releasing „Mic Sound Nice“ featuring Ruste Juxx, upcoming Staten Island spitter Dro Pesci and DJ Modesty in 2015, this time Munich/Germany based beatmaker Roccwell teams up with well respected Born Unique and DJ Case for his new single “Let It Go”.

Heavy drums, dark samples, Born Unique´s distinctive voice and DJ Case´s razor-sharp cuts are the ingredients for a meal Underground Hip Hop fans should not be missing out on.
For the future, Roccwell will be cooking up even more for those who love 90s boombap as he is currently working on an album with his crew Allcoasters (with DJ Case and Canadian rapper Mickey Boston) which will also feature Craig G, Empuls, Melo Malo Paulino and many more.

New song by ROCCWELL - MICKEY BOSTON - THE JUNGLE - feat. CRAIG G (CUTS BY CASE)

ROCCWELL x MICKEY BOSTON - THE JUNGLE - FEAT. CRAIG G (CUTS BY CASE)

Munich based producer @ROCCWELL is realeasing quite a few underground hiphop gems with various US artists these days. This is the cover artwork I did for his latest online release featuring Mickey Boston, Craig G (Juice Crew) and DJ Case. Make sure to check out the song on youtube and please help him spread the word. This is some good oldfashioned boombap hiphop with a ROCCWELL-touch to it!

Excerpt from press info:
"Craig G, heavyweight legend comes together with Mic-Key Boston and Munich-based producer Roccwell on their latest offering entitled “The Jungle”. Mic-Key Boston and Roccwell combine together once again after the release of "Bill Cosby Sweaters" on their duo single which also features cuts by CASE.

Dropping on a hardbody Roccwell production, the German producer customized the beat for the MicKey Boston and Craig G project. Both emcees remain undeniably fervent on bringing about conscious awareness concerning current global crisises effecting the greater "jungle" we reside in. Honoured to bring about Queensbridge legend Craig G to the fore, Roccwell moves forward with his gritty boombap production smoothly and ruggedly complemented by the cuts of DJ CASE. Roccwell brings about his trademark boombap sound in order to compliment the track’s revolutionary concept."

Side by Side Comparison AVCHD versus XAVC S on Sony RX100 III

This is just a quick side by side comparison of the two file formats of Sonys RX100 III. This is not serious test, I just tried the different formats on a quick walk to check if there is a big difference. On first sight I would say XAVC gives better details and bit more dynamic range. This also results in a bigger filesize for XAVC clips. Both Scenes are shot at 1/50 f8 ISO 400 at 50p (28M for AVCHD, 50M for XAVCS). The difference is noticable especially on the ground, comparing the sticks. At about 00:30 in the video there is a digital zoom to 200%. The sides switch at about 00:45.

Method Man and Redman LIVE in Munich 2012

Method Man and Redman Live in Munich, December 2012

I made a short slideshow from some pictures I took at a Method Man & Redman concert in Munich. Shot with a Canon 500d and the cheap 50mm 1.8 lens, hence the grain. But the atmosphere was kind of grainy too, so the photos match pretty well I guess. The music I used is from youtube.com/muars who kindly hooked me up with this beat.

Portfolio Update

BTS - Out shooting sunrise on a foggy morning back in 2011.

I recently updated my portfolio. There are a few new images in the opening slideshow and I added 3 categories: Events, Landscape and Portrait

BTW: Flickr came out with a new design about a week ago and I really enjoy the new look. I started on flickr back in 2009 and I still upload images every now and then, perhaps more often again in the future. 

If you're on flickr too, let's connect there, here is my profile: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pbv

QUICK and DIRTY: cheap DIY flash gel for canon speedlite 430EXII from plastic bottle

I recently had to improvise a cooling gel for my canon flash on location and a blue plastic bottle came in handy. I found out that these handmade gels are pretty durable and you can get various color variations from different soft drinks. I made a short video to show you how I cut the gel to fit the flash. Below you can see a portrait in which I used this very gel for the backlight.


BTS: Umbrella left speedlite; backlight right flash with selfmade "cool" gel; both on manual, radio triggered. camera: f/7.1, 0.3s, 70mm, ISO 800; shot outside. Flash on shutter opening, then moved the camera upwards to the dark evening sky to achieve the blurry-blue bleeding in the frame, thus the slow shutter.

insight: "reverb" on flickr

"reverb"
"reverb"

I uploaded this picture ("reverb") on flickr on June 24, 2011. According to their rating system this is the "most interesting" picture in my photostream. By now it has been viewed over 2700 times, more than 200 people count this image to their favorites and over 30 flickr users left a comment so far. Not a big deal but I really appreciate that. I found out that tumblr plays an important role here. Many people shared it on their tumblr blogs, others re-shared it and so on. So a lot of traffic comes from there.

I visited this location a few times during the last years. Every once in a while when I drive by this area I stop to check the view. It is only a short walk to get there so you can easily do it "on the fly". I marked the spot on the flickr map, just in case you are interested.

I really enjoy fog as an element in landscape photography... fog is a friend ;)

This image got featured today as "Photo of the Day" on http://www.solifestyle.com/, a New York based fashion, art and photography blog. Check them out.
