Rally For Refugees & Immigrants

Rally For Refugees & Immigrants

This past weekend, the Sisters of Mercy in America held a Rally for Refugees and Immigrants. It was the first rally of it's kind in the area since the new administration took. Politics aside, we thought it would be a good chance to grab some 360 photos with the Theta S. We also snapped some regular stills so the organizers would have some photos to share from the day. While the day was cold a windy, it was a bright blue sky, which was great for the Theta S. It works really well in the low light test we've put it through, but had yet to really test it with a bright sun. Usually, you can place the sun in front of your subject for better exposure and not have to worry about the camera underexposing your subject. With a 360 camera, the sun and subject are both going to be captured. The Theta S performed pretty well. If you take a...

Shuters Notes: National Anxiety and Heart out at Bart & Urby’s

Shuters Notes: National Anxiety and Heart out at Bart & Urby’s

 Before I turned to the "dark side". and became a videographer, I was a budding amateur photographer. Even though I failed my first official photography class (still upsets me) I knew that visual storytelling was my passion. At the same time, I transitioned from being a DJ to a radio Disc Jockey.

It may sound weird, but all of my injuries lead me working into media. When I was finally sidelined I began broadcasting games. If I wasn’t calling a game I was shooting it. Eventually, I switched from sports coverage to focusing on music...

Peculiar Music Festival and Community Support

Peculiar Music Festival and Community Support

11 bands, 11 hours… all to support the local community. That was the goal of Peculiar Culinary Company in hosting their first Peculiar Music Festival. The event was to support the revitalization of Jefferson Park in Pittston, PA and they raised $3,600 for renovations in the Fred Demech Bldg! Park, our foodie counterparts Whiskey Bacon and many other sponsors and vendors were on hand to help support the effort and make the day a success. We donated event photography and videography services for all the bands that performed. Peculiar got professional photos and videos of the event and the bands now have some great media to use to promote themselves. Everyone wins..yes, including us. Park likes to pick a few events a year to donate services to, for many reasons.                 The obvious is it helps raise our awareness and company profile. If the community sees us out and about supporting them, hopefully they will support us as a small business. Also, it offers a service...
