This past December, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) had its annual summit in downtown Washington D.C at the Marriott Hotel. This year's theme was social networking. A series of events introduced members to the many advantages of the growing phenomenon.
To finish off the summit, SHRM invited all the attendees to a "Twilight TweetUp." The event was part after-party, part Social Networking 101, and included funky music, an IPad give-away, and tons of tweeting. DeanMark cinematographer Wildersee Harris was present to create a video record of all the festivities.
"I needed a kit small enough to allow me to be mobile and maneuver through a crowed room of people. Thus, I used the Canon EOS 7D and the Canon EF 35mm prime lens. In the dimly-lit party hall, I raised the 7D's ISO to 3200, which allowed me to capture properly exposed video with negligible image quality loss. I opened the iris of the 35mm prime lens to f/2.0, which created a shallow depth of field and some really beautiful shots."
SHRM will use the final product to 1.) allow attendees to relive the fun times and 2.) to attract a larger crowd for their future events. Please follow DeanMark on Twitter for useful news and updates.
