I have pretty good audio but I would have liked to put a lavaliere mic on one of the Larpers because it would have gave a different perspective into the narrative. I also have to rerecord some of the audio sounds like swords hitting and battle sounds because there was a lot of wind and the audio in some cases became almost useless.

One of the players had a recorder and so I threw together a little behind the scenes parody to our documentary.


Blog 3 – Rexburg vs Idaho Falls

Idaho Falls and the Rexburg LARP groups have teamed up to battle one with another. They’ve dedicated themselves to their activity which has made filming them both a treat and a fun spectacle.


I quickly learned that shooting on a wide angle lens is much more ideal in these battles because there’s so much movement and I unfortunately missed a lot of good fights because of my tight shots. Second thing I learned is I either need to get my hands on some kind of stabilizer or gimbal because using a tripod has been difficult because there’s much more cardio in this activity than I anticipated.


I decided to simply observe this last Saturday as the teams fought. The plan is to immerse myself in their game and get more familiar with the players because I’m hoping they’ll feel more inclined to open up in their future interviews if I get to know them and take an interest in their sport.

Photobook COMM300

My Portfolio Book has been a great learning process. This semester at school has helped provide me with so many great and important principles of photography.

I feel more confident in my understanding of how to take more professional photos. I learned everything from portrait photography to using Macro lenses and I look forward to using and improving my skills in the future to come.
