We always have interviews with popular photographers, and this interview below is the
first one with video shooter. Had great opportunity to invite Nitsan Simantov to attend our interview.
He is innately gentle and full of nice ideas in shooting videos. Do you want to become a charming video
shooter? Let’s check here, you can also follow Nitsan’s youtube.
1. Why do u like taking videos? Do u think video is better than stills?
I like shooting video because I find it can be more challenging than stills, so it pushes me to learn new ways
to improve myself and the production techniques. I then take those same skills and equipment and apply
them to my photography work. for example, I currently light all my photography work using video
lights (Including some Aputure lights, of course. My 528 lights have got as much use in my recent
photography work as they did in videos.) with the exception of live events and some situations where
a flash’s power or portability is needed.
I shot for a client’s new album art (www.DavePress.co.uk)
using my Aputure Amaran 528s, 528w, a 300 LED ring light, a bit of sunlight
from that back window, a big silver umbrella and a reflector.
Shot on the 5DIII and Samyang 35mm at f1.4.
2. What do u often shoot videos with? How do u think about DSLR videos?
My way of shooting is ”shoot compact”. I keep my setup as lightweight and compact as possible. This
means that every improvement to my equipment is important to me. My main setup is a 5D mark III
with prime lenses. I’m always wanting to take lots of lenses to a shoot but I force myself to travel light
whenever I can.
The lenses that almost always come with me are the Samyang 14mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4, 85mm f1.4 and
Nikon 50mm f1.2 AIS. Most others stay at home or get sold on eBay. My backup camera is a sony NEX-6.
3. If u could shoot anything/anywhere/anyone, what would it be?
I haven’t really thought that far ahead. I’d love to shoot a feature length comedy, and then progress into
action film production.
4. Do u think shooting skills are more important than contents of video? Why?… READ MORE
