Sometimes I film for clients. And sometimes I film just for the fun of it. It's important if you want to be a professional photographer or film maker to remember to make the effort to go out and create, even if you aren't getting paid. Maybe even especially if you aren't getting paid. Personal projects allow you the freedom to try new things, to learn new techniques, and to remember why creating images became your passion in the first place, all without the pressure of producing for a client.
In this particular case, I was lucky enough to spend a day sport climbing at Echo Cliffs with a couple of friends. Since I always bring a camera along, I took the opportunity to practice filming with a glidecam while hiking, and to experiment with filming in 4K on my Fujifilm X-T2. Without a client that needed specific deliverables I was able to test out the classic chrome profile film simulation, to see if I liked it. Bringing my files back home also gave me the chance to practice editing and color grading on the newest version of Davinci Resolve. Do you like the results?
