Just made this video looking for feedback
@JacobSct Well, damnation! So brutally simple and brilliant. I do not believe I have ever seen that trick talked about before on youtube. Good job. I sure never woukd have thought of it.
I've used a tripod on paper but never a sock. It does make sense on a more slippery surface.
I especially like the table top close movement.
Thanks a ton for the feedback, really appreciate it.
Holy Frick & Frak, Batman! What an awesome trick. Brilliant!
(I'll be stealin' that hack.)
Thanks for the feedback @stargazer54
That was great!
I "missed" a shot because I didn't have old tennis balls (in essence to do the same), but I sure had socks!!
Maybe that's why the dryer is stealing my socks. It is putting together a documentary on how people keep stuffing crap in its mouth. Awesome hack though. I knew about the tennis ball trick but never the socks. Will definitely be keeping a bundle of old holy socks in my gear box. Thanks for the awesome tip!
Thats really simple and very clever,
@Stargazer54 I'd not used socks before--which is very clever, since those suckers fit around the tripod legs and will stay put (I'd say add in a rubber band around the top of the socks so if you pick up your tripod the socks stay attached)--but I'd have thought you'd used cardboard or other fabric (t-shirts and towels) before. :-)
@Jacob_Sct you know it's a good hint when you get an experienced field/event video guy like Stargazer excited about it! Me, too! Soon as I read the title I knew where it was going, and I did a facepalm for not thinking of it myself. Those are the best hints. :-D
Thanks a ton @triem23 I really appreciate it
Good tip, really need that nice surface to glide on.
I thought this was that thing where you place a stretched out thin membrane inside the lens to emphasize the bokeh or something.
Thanks, @andy001z and yes I find it works better on a matte surface compared to a glossy
Slick trick! I don't shoot live stuff, but will definitely remember that if it ever comes up.
