Passion & Craft: Lucas Gilman – Adventure Photographer

24 Jan

A few weeks ago I had the chance to speak with Adventure Photographer Lucas Gilman in Berlin. He was there for a G-Technology event at the Apple Store in Berlin. We talked a bit about the passion and craft that goes in the work he does and about his work & “challenges” in the Video world.

Stay tuned for part two next month. He will talk more about his workflow and using the new MacPro since he had the chance to use it early 😉

Shot on Sony F3 using vintage Nikkor 35mm, 50mm and 85mm lenses and Canon 70D with Sigma 17-50mm f2.8

I actually used one tip I’ve got from Lucas for this Video … since it was kinda bad, grey and cold weather in Berlin everything kinda looked grey and cold but like Lucas said these are actually good conditions for Black and White shots. So his tip was: If the weather isn’t that great and all looks grey, make it black and white…and I think that worked out pretty nice 😉

So thanks for that tip, Lucas and for the time and thanks to the whole G-Tech crew in Berlin.

BTW I used a G-DRIVE ev via USB 3.0 on a 2009 MacPro with a CalDigit USB3.0 PCI-E card to manage the footage of the Sony F3 and 70D. I also used that drive for editing in Premiere Pro CC. It’s a solid little drive with transfer speeds like a big internal 3,5″ drive… pretty good!
