Craig Shipp was on assignment for a Miss Frederick photo and video tour of Historic Downtown Frederick.
Centering on the merchants on Patrick and Market Streets, the current Miss Frederick talked about many of their businesses and posed in front of their shops. Capturing the action was Craig Shipp, a professional of long-standing in Frederick.
Craig often talks about focus. And he's not just meaning lens focus. His energy focuses on the subject while he ensures the images he takes are not blurred. When you watch Craig in action, he's looking for lighting, for interesting angles and backgrounds. He's monitoring the ambient noise levels. He's guiding his subjects through the process that creates the videos and articles he creates for Frederick.com.
Craig uses high-quality, twelve mega-pixel cameras in his work, including Nikon, Canon and Casio. He goes back and forth between his tools seamlessly. Each camera has its advantages. Behind his current favorites are a pile of cameras that represent the rapid progression of camera advances.
It seems like state-of-the-art changes every fifteen minutes, and it's almost a full-time job just to keep up with the latest in multi-media capabilities. The camera is just a small part of the process. It's integrating the camera into a total system that results in timely editing, rendering, uploading and processing. The results are the web TV videos and photographs you see on AreaGuides Network sites, such as Frederick.com.
