My first D7000 video... or any video, for that matter.

My friends Matt & Jen asked me to shoot their daughter Acelyn’s birthday party for the second straight year. I just got my D7000 the day before the party, so I was super stoked to test it out. I’ve never shot video on a DSLR before, so I was really just playing around and hoping for the best. Now I know why everyone uses stabilizers. It’ll definitely be one of my next purchases. Anyone have any suggestions?

The party itself was a lot of fun. They hired Jen MacQueen from ToddlerPalooza, an Atlanta-based children’s entertainment company, to come out and sing songs with the kids. She brought a plethora of colorful toys and the kids seemed to have a blast. Definitely made for some good photos and video. 

Anyways, here’s my first attempt at video. *drumroll*
