2 Free Stock Footage Clips Are Key

Since I've lived in my current place, I've had this old piano in the basement.  It was left there when the old homeowners moved out.  While it is need of some crucial TLC, I don't have it in my heart to get rid of it.  I've cleaned it up quite a bit, and what you even see here was after a considerable about of dusting (The hammers were gray when I started!).  I took the opportunity, while I had it opened up, to catch a couple of clips to offer here.

What you see is my FS700 with my Sigma 180mm macro lens lit with my F&V R-300 Ring light.  I would have liked to have a few more light sources so I could have closed my iris a bit and opened up the field of view a little more and still capture it at 240 frames per second.

I am happy with what I could get, I am glad I did it, and I am glad I learned what I need to do better.  Hope you can use it!!!

You can preview and download the clips by clicking "read more" below.  Happy Downloading!

These videos were shot using a Sony NEX-FS700 and the Sigma 180mm F2.8 EX APO DG HSM OS Macro with a Metabones EF to NEX Speedboster Adapter
