K-01/She Makes War

I've been getting more experience with my K-01 and as part of this effort, I shot "She Makes War" (Laura Kidd).
The venue was a spectacle shop in London and was part of a festival called "City Showcase" which supports up and coming artists of all types.

I shot some video and took some stills using both my 16mm Zenitar as well as the 40mm XS. I used the internal stereo mic with the
sensitivity turned all the way down.

Video:


The video was shot using the 16mm. You may want to watch it full screen to get the full HD effect.

The video would have gained a lot had the camera been on a tripod...

For the way I want to shoot, a tripod would be too static. For example, It would have been difficult to catch her moving around at the end using a tripod.
A stabilizer is probably more useful for what I'm doing....more stuff to buy,,,,,

Or rent, depending on where you live. Shoulder mounts can be very handy. Also, was the in-camera shake reduction on?

Really could have used a steadycam for this, and for future reference posting portrait oriented video online is considered a faux-pas ... it's really annoying.

Shake reduction was on.

I was thinking about shoulder mount but the flycam/steadicam style seems a little more interesting.

As much as I know that TVs, movie screens, and computer monitors are (mostly) not made with portrait orientation in mind, I have to wonder if some creative possibilties lie in shooting videos with a portrait aspect ratio...or a square one.

Not that I advocate holding your camera vertically, but I'm from the "no wrong way" artists' school.

I agree that there is no "wrong way" to shoot, just unconventional.
