There is no better or more cost-effective place than your website, to introduce strangers (and reintroduce existing customers) to your organisation. 24 hours a day it is there offering information to those who are in the mood to seek it.
Tell people about what you do by showing them a short video(s). The cost will normally be a couple of hundred quid and that is a one-off expense, unlike yellow pages etc. Talk to us about what makes you special and let's pass it on.
It is clear to see that aerial photography and aerial video, while expensive, can be used to great effect. The introduction of remote controlled 'Drones' in some cases can reduce cost considerably, but because of safety (and privacy) issues, there are many things I will need to consider first.
If you contemplating this sort of production. Talk to us about what can and cannot be done, to get what you want and keep us legal. If you were wondering the Church is St. Mary’s in Byfleet and the other is the Hamble River at Warsash, 2 projects I worked on in 2020.
Time lapse photography is a great way to really study movement and flow, but it is also effective in bringing an otherwise boring business video to life.
It is also perfect fly-bys, or for events like the Ice Bucket Challenge as shown here. The equipment we use gives a choice of one photo every 0.25, 0.5, 1.0, 2. and every 5 seconds.
We can mount the camera on a rotating and panning motor settable at various time intervals and lastly we can mount the whole thing on a tripod at up to 8 metres of height.
Of course Andy's Video do not just make videos showing your company's services, premises, staff and vehicles We can also help you plan media and execute any other form of event, both for companies and individuals.
We have had experience ranging from setting up trade stands with Video Projection and playback, through photography or video presentations of other film makers at work.
Whatever the event we feel sure we can make it better and give you a lasting record.
Glamour Photography has been an interested of mine since I was old enough to appreciate the art form and I seem to have the knack of making almost any women look good.
Being married to a 'part time' on line lingerie catalogues model, I have produced Glamour Photographs that have won competitions, popular Glamour Calenders, as well as images for the on line lingerie adverts.
Tell us what you want and if we cannot help,we will almost definitely know someone who can.
We operate a large selection of digital recording equipment and work as standard at HD level. This equipment includes waterproof units, high level and dolly mounted units. Back at the studio we have editing suites for almost all formats.
Miniature, or large cameras can be fitted to high performance vehicles to record events both inside and outside the vehicle.
At the other extreme it could be fitted to a 'rolled' tanker to let the recovery operative see how it reacted when he winched it back upright.
Many people, myself included, started recording videos with the good old Sony 8 cassettes. Back in the eighties this was the first real portable format to gain any ground. If you have footage you recorded in this format we can convert it and place it on a modern DVD, or flash drive, to enjoy all over again.
We also have a pair of the legendary Panasonic AG-7700's so that we can edit your VHS, SVHS tapes as well. We even have the adapters to load the VHS-C and SVHS-C mini cassettes.
Once converted to a digital format it will no longer deteriorate, which unfortunately your existing tapes are doing every day. So please, if the tape is important to you, get it transferred to digital media as soon as possible. If you can not, then please store it away from anything magnetic and where the temperature changes slowly and over a small range. There are few place worse than leaving them on that shelf under the TV in the living room!
The two examples shown at the top demonstrate what can be done with an important documentary image. Clearly once detail is lost it can never be put back, but in the case of noise (little white dots in this image) it is possible to guess at the what was there and clone it back. In the case of torn edge it is safe to assume that most of that area was curtain and so again it can be cloned from elsewhere in the image. Even the missing bodies can be cloned, but of course the face cannot (hence the two greyed areas). The rest is just general clean up and colour removal.
The two lower images show someone’s much prized picture of HMS Tiger, taken in the eighties, but sadly greatly deteriorated after twenty years in his wallet. The second image shows what can be done to bring it back to life
This little snap I took of my glamours wife one day at the office while getting changed to go out to an evening event. I felt it was totally spoilt by the background which is something that often happens when a photograph is taken on the 'spur of the moment'.
I eventually decided to cut her silhouette out of the office environment and put it in to an outdoor sunrise setting. Then added a poppy as a point of focus, to replace the file.
Many glamour shots are done with a blue screen background allowing the background to be easily changed, but of course when there is a background already it can be a little bit more tricky
This image of a 'down on its luck' Ford Granada sleeping in the subway I took in the eighties, had suffered from years of being on display on a National Rescue office wall.
Computer software was used to remove the ageing from the print. Then very careful editing removed the scratches and blemishes. Then lastly rebuilding the right-hand bottom corner.
Like the Ford Granada in the picture, the value of images usually goes down with the years, but when they get to a certain point both come back up again. The car in monetary value and the image in interest and rarity value.
